Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian islands and was created from
two separate volcanos (one extinct and one
dormant) and the Haleakala crater is large enough to fit Manhattan inside. It also has the famous drive along the "Road to Hana". Maui is host to many golf tournaments and has an old whaling port at Lahaina. In Lahaina is the banyan tree, planted in 1873 and is the largest tree in Hawaii.
Maui is a fisherman's paradise with many varieties of fish. The most prized is the Blue Marlin!
It also has 42 miles of beaches along its sunny coastline; more than any other island. Along the Haleakala slopes there are seven different climates from desert to tropical rain forest.
The road to Hana is a very scenic trip with many turns, bridges and beautiful vistas.
Maui also has a special distinction. From one spot on the west part of the island, you you can see many of the other islands. While marveling at that sight, I also saw dolphins and baby whales playing near the shore.

Exit to Eden (1994)
