Maui. Located right in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, Maui is the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands at 48 miles long and 26 miles across at its widest point. A true tropical paradise, Maui has been voted "Best Island in the World" by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler, "World's Best Island" by the readers of Travel + Leisure and "Best Beach Destination" and "Best Beach Honeymoon Destination" by U.S. News Media Group.

- More miles of swimmable beach than any other Hawaiian island
- 120 linear miles of shoreline
- The largest dormant volcano in the world, Haleakala, at 10,023 feet high, 21 miles across and 4,000 feet deep (large enough to hold the island of Manhattan)

- 10 state parks and one national park, Haleakala National Park
Wailea. Along Maui's spectacularly scenic southern coastline, Wailea stands out like an oasis. Lush, green and meticulously manicured, Wailea is the premier resort area on Maui, consistently voted the "Best Island in the World," by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler Magazine. With splendid weather, five heavenly beaches, clear water and outstanding views of Molokini and Kaho'olawe, Wailea is the perfect destination for your beach vacation in Hawaii.
This affluent Wailea vacation rental resort is home to the finest Maui golf courses, an award-winning tennis club, high-end boutiques, spas, art galleries and restaurants. The 1.5-mile coastal nature trail is the best way to explore Wailea's golden resort coast and to see vistas of islands, beautiful beaches and humpback whales during the winter season.
Makena. Just four miles south of Wailea Resort, the manicured coast changes over to the wilderness of Makena, which in Hawaiian means "abundance." Makena Resort includes 1,800 acres of prime coastal land, most of which remains in its natural, untouched state - which is why Makena is a popular choice for vacationers seeking an escape from the urban grind they left behind.
