Beaches

With 120 miles of coastline, Maui boasts over 30 miles of beautiful beaches. On these world-famous shores, you`ll find white, black and red sand beaches, renowned surfing and windsurfing spots as well as some of the best beaches in the world to simply swim, snorkel and sunbathe. Many are easily accessible beach parks with lifeguards, picnic facilities, and restrooms. Others are undeveloped, "secret spots" found off the beaten path. Discover Maui`s world-famous beaches below.

Culture

The diverse culture of Hawaii is expressed in (among other things) language, music, art, theater, dance, film, cuisine and a multitude of festivals. At the core of each is the spirit of aloha, in the fluid arc of a hula dancer`s hands or in the soft rhythm of a slack-key guitar. The "Aloha Spirit" is the coordination of mind and heart within each person. It brings each person to the self. Each person must think and emote good feelings to others. In the contemplation and presence of life force.

Museums and Tours

Explore Hawaii`s living museums and learn about the rich culture and history of the islands. Discover artifacts and artwork from Hawaii`s past from the first Polynesian settlers to the attack on Pearl Harbor. Or browse modern art galleries to see some of Hawaii`s - and the Pacific`s - best contemporary art.

Natural Sights

Keep your camera ready: in Hawaii, breathtaking sights await you around every turn. Here, just about every byway is scenic, and each overlook offers a new Instagram-ready vista. From hidden sea caves along the Napali Coast to state parks that let you walk in the footsteps of Hawaiian royalty - not to mention our hundreds of miles of sun-kissed beaches - we invite you to explore Hawaii`s magnificent scenery.

Restaurants

With our bounty of fresh fruits and vegetables, fertile upland cattle farms and Pacific Ocean waters teeming with sashimi-grade fish, Hawaiian cuisine is a colorful tapestry of traditions and flavors. Here, ancient customs meet international influences brought to Hawaii over hundreds of years, giving local food culture more layers than a Maui onion. From dawn until well past dusk, Hawaii offers visitors a dizzying menu of culinary wonders, including the islands` own Hawaii Regional Cuisine, which blends the islands` diverse flavors with the fruits of Hawaii`s farms and plantations.

Shopping

From Lahaina to Hana, you never know what special treasures you`ll discover on Maui. Overlooking the emerald waters of Kaanapali Beach, the Whalers Village shopping center has a range of shopping gems, from Kate Spade and Oakley to local shops with Hawaiian shirts and other aloha wear.
