Shave ice is heaven in a cup on a hot day; a sugary delight made from a slice of ice so thin it creates a new texture in your mouth you've have probably never experienced. Like us, you may have grown up eating sno-cones. Don't be deceived: what we're talking about here is on a whole different …
Maui - The Valley Isle
Maui is the second oldest of the islands. And what was one large island is now four smaller islands (thanks to erosion).
Maui has two large volcanic peaks (one being Haleakala National Park) with a large flat valley in between.
Maui’s main three areas:
Hana (as in, the Road to Hana) which is a more rural area on the windward side.
Kihei and Wailea are on the leeward side of the eastern half of Maui. Here you’ll find long, beautiful beaches and hotels and resorts. Kihei is a small/suburban tourist town and Wailea is a planned resort area complete with a high-end shopping mall.
Lahaina is the resort town/area found on the leeward side of the western half of Maui. It’s home to the famously large banyan tree (planted in 1873!) and the shopping on Front Street.
There is plenty of hiking and beach activities around the island. Maui is also well known as the main art scene, with many galleries around the island (mainly in Lahaina and Pa’ia). It’s also the main island for whale watching.
Maui goes from rural to small suburban towns. Its main airport is in Kahului.
