Experience the Valley Island

Maui is actually made up of two volcanoes with a bridge of flat land between them – hence the “Valley Island” nickname. It’s the second largest Hawaiian island and offers a taste of just about everything the Aloha State has to offer, from impressive wildlife to intriguing history and culture. While on a visit here, you can shimmy alongside professional hula dancers, golf along coastal fairways, snorkel alongside different types of sea turtles or simply lounge along some of Hawaii’s most notable beaches. The island is beloved for its world-famous beaches, the sacred Iao Valley, views of migrating humpback whales, farm-to-table cuisine and the magnificent sunrise and sunset from Haleakala (the world’s largest dormant volcano). It’s not surprising that Maui has been voted “Best Island in the U.S.” by Condé Nast Traveler readers for more than 20 years.
