Maui Travel Guide
The recent fires that devastated Lahaina and its surrounds, as well as other areas of Maui’s popular west side, have halted non-essential visits to the Valley Island for the foreseeable future. While Lahaina was virtually wiped out, it appears the entire west side, which includes Lahaina, Kaanapali, Kahana, Napili and Kapalua have sustained damage and are affected to varying degrees. If you are planning a visit to Maui over the next several months, you will be well served to contact your travel providers to cancel and make alternate plans. HGD will not promote any travel to Maui until the authorities indicate that it is okay to do so. The Big Island of Hawaii, Oahu and Kauai continue to entertain visitors and we can certainly help you visit those lovely islands.
The slightly upscale image carefully crafted for travel annals is somewhat on display when visiting the second largest Hawaiian Island — Maui. Those who live here say, Maui no ka oi — Maui is the best. Those who visit this home of almost 100,000 residents will be transfixed by the beaches, hidden valleys, a majestic volcano, and the cuisine.
Maui is not the reserved, serene place it was before the 1990s. It is more crowded and less attractive than in the mid- to late-20th Century. Glancing around the immediate environs Maui’s unattractive airport (OGG) will support such a claim. And the prices for just about everything, especially lodging and dining, will have folks considering a second mortgage. But there is much to see, do and enjoy.
The “Valley Isle” is actually two islands created by two volcanoes and connected by a fertile isthmus. West Maui—formed by the Pu’u Kukui volcano—is remarkably different from the south side. It features the 19th Century whaling town of Lahaina and the sprawling Kapalua Resort. But beware, the far west side of Maui is where the weather can turn on a dime, and a gorgeous island day can turn into a squall in minutes, only to be gorgeous again in less than an hour.
South Maui’s town of Kihei, and its neighboring resorts—with some of the best weather on the planet—are set at the base of the world’s largest dormant (not extinct) volcano, Haleakula (“House of the Sun”), which reaches over 10,000 ft. to the sky. In 1911, Jack London observed: “It [Haleakula] was a scene of vast bleakness and desolation, stern, forbidding, fascinating… a place of fire and earthquake, a workshop of nature still cluttered with the raw beginnings of world-making… It was all unreal and unbelievable.” It still is!
