Maui, known also as “The Valley Isle,” is the second largest Hawaiian island. 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 sunny northwest coast of Maui was once a retreat for Hawaiian royalty and the capitol of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Today, West Maui is home to spectacular resorts, shopping, restaurants, a wealth of activities and some of the most amazing sunsets in the world. Kapalua Bay on Maui's northwestern shore is one of the most picturesque white-sand beaches on the island. Swimming is good here because a coral reef and long rocky outcrops at both sides of the bay protect the beach from strong currents. Because of a lack of strong waves and currents, the inshore waters are usually clear, so the snorkeling and diving conditions are good, especially at the north end of the beach.
