Maui is the second largest Hawaiian island. It has a smaller population but has a wide variety of plant and animal life. Many species are rare and endangered including the Nene Goose (the official state bird) and the Humpback Whale (the official state marine mammal).
Most visitors will find the weather here is really perfect. Not to hot, not to cold. Maui's climate on the Windward side (North-east side) tend to get fairly heavy rainfall because the tradewinds travel East to west and the clouds build up on the East side of the islands. On the Leeward side (South-east side) , the conditions are much drier and there is more sun. The town of Lahaina and Kihei's climate is very dry and sunny.
There is a wide range of accommodations on Maui, including resorts, hotels, bed and breakfasts, and condominium rentals. You’ll find resorts and hotels of every size and budget in Kapalua, Kaanapali, Lahaina, Kihei, Makena and Wailea on the sunny western coast as well as one resort in Hana in East Maui. Whether you’re looking for a 5 Diamond resort or a seaside cottage, you’re sure to find what you’re looking for in Maui.
