Maui Info

Maui Information

Maui is the second-largest Hawaiian island. It is formed by the fusion of two former neighbouring volcanoes, now extinct, joined by volcanic rock, which now carves a deep valley through the island's centre. It is incredibly beautiful. Blessed with an abundant rainforest the hills of the east coast are filled with a wonderful variety of exotic flora and fauna. Sandy beaches and fine surf makes the whole island a paradise for water sports enthusiasts. One of the best beaches, curiously named Slaughterhouse is renowned for the presence of turtles and colourful shoals of fish, making it a snorkelling favourite. Hikers can walk the Haleakala, the largest dormant volcano in the world that looms large over Maui and is rich with tropical jungle.
