Best Things to Do in Maui

Maui's various attractions and activities cater to just about every interest. While adventurers hike the dormant Haleakala volcano, more relaxed travelers can soak up the sun on one of many different beaches or test the fairways at one of Maui's 14 golf courses. But Maui isn't just for beach-bums and sportsfolk: The island offers up its history and culture at sites like Iao Valley State Park, Banyan Tree Park and the Old Lahaina Luau. And those traveling with kids can learn all about Hawaii's underwater residents at the Maui Ocean Center.
