Each of the major Hawaiian Islands has its own draws.

While there are many unique land activities available on each island, snorkeling remains one of our favorite activities, and one we always recommend to visitors looking for an easy way to…Continue

Those 'in the know' will tell you that camping is one of the most amazing experiences you can have in Hawaii, and especially on Maui. With so many microclimates, gorgeous views and exotic locations to choose from, the hardest part of camping is narrowing down where to do it.
One major issue for travelers, however, is what to do about getting your camping gear to Maui. While pitching a tent sounds easy enough, bulky items like a sleeping bag, cooking…Continue

As residents of Maui, you may think we're immune to the idea of 'vacation'. What could we possibly want to get away from? Do we really need to fly somewhere else to find what we're looking for, especially when it's another tropical island in the same island chain?
Well, like anyone who's lived in the same place long enough can attest, sometimes we all need a change of scenery. And Kauai, for us, may just be the best place to do that.

One of the best things about live music venues on Maui is the fact that they're often smaller and more intimate than your typical stadium, auditorium or concert venue on the mainland.
At least on Maui, there really aren't any bad seats, and certainly no nosebleed sections. The Mill House at Maui Tropical Plantation, however, takes intimate seating to a whole new level. And there's plenty to…Continue

If photography is your passion, or you're simply interested in learning more about it, Hawaii is the perfect playground to capture amazing photography, both above and below the ocean.

Many people don't realize that Maui County includes the neighbor islands of Moloka'i and Lana'i, both of which can be easily reached by a ferry or boat ride from West Maui's Lahaina Harbor.
These islands offer a smaller, more intimate look at the Hawaii of the past - little commercialization and only a few thousand residents - and are a great way to learn more about the culture and history of Hawaii while expanding your horizons (and views). …

Maui is full of enjoyable activities for every kind of person... the laid-back lounger can choose from 81 gorgeous beaches, the adrenaline junky can hang glide around the Hana coastline, the explorer can hike through a volcanic crater 10,000 feet above sea level, and the water-inclined can surf, scuba, snorkel, free dive and snuba to their heart's desire.
But as far as entertainment options, Maui is fairly limited. Sure, there are bars and restaurants, and the…Continue
