Hawaii Maui

The Pristine Beauty and Ancient Wonders of Maui and the Hawaiian Islands

Also known as “The Valley Isle,” the island of Maui is one of the largest of the Hawaiian islands as well as one of the more pristine and beautiful islands in the entire world. Maui is remarkably rich and diverse when it comes to its landscape, wildlife and marine life, being famous not only for its pristine beaches, but also for places like the Iao Valley, where you can spot some of the best sights of migrating humpback whales.

The beaches of Maui are remarkably diverse and unique, and you can take part in land activities ranging from basic hiking trips and family friendly tours, to paddleboarding, snorkeling, diving, sailing, farm tours and unforgettable parasailing experiences.

Hawaii wasn’t actually discovered by Europeans until the end of the 18th century, when French explorer Jean-François de Galaup first set foot on the Islands. However, Hawaii also has a rich and unique history and heritage passed down through the generations from the ancient Polynesian ancestors who inhabited Maui long before it became part of the United States.
