Affordable Paradise - Maui, "The Valley Isle"
Residents of Maui proudly describe their Valley Isle by explaining that "Maui no ka oi". Maui is the greatest. Windsurfers agree. They come from around the world to frolic at the beaches of the island's windy central isthmus.
Maui was created by two volcanoes. Haleakala, the larger, rises over 10.000 feet, and offers excellent hiking and camping.
Humpback whales make Maui their winter destination of choice. Although they visit all the Hawaiian islands, the biggest groups gather in sight of Maui's coastline.
