“Maui No Ka Oi”, this slogan was developed by a good friend of mine many years ago, Vonnie Lyons, wife of cartoonist Harry Lyons. It has been adopted by the visitor industry and its origins are probably forgotten by most. "No ka oi" means "the best", and two million plus travellers agree that Maui is truly "the best". Its miles of beaches at Kapalua and Kaanapali, at Kihei and Wailea and, least accessible, at Hana have won numerous travel awards. Haleakala, at 10,023' in elevation, is called the "House of the Sun" for many reasons. Sunrises and sunsets are awesome. For hikers there are trails through the crater, and bikers love that steep descent with 29 switch backs of vistas.
I will wrote more about Maui in the coming days, and put more photos up.

KIHEI BEACH MAUI
Of Maui's 120 miles of coastline, six miles is Kihei Beach right at the front door of several condominium complexes, restaurants, shopping and a wide variety of activities. Because everything you might need is within walking distance, you can just park your car and start enjoying your vacation.
Kihei is known for its nearly perfect weather thanks to Haleakala, which rises up behind the town and holds the rain clouds in its 10,023-foot grip. Kihei, Maui receives only about 10 inches of rain a year. From here you have spectacular views over an impossibly azure sea towards the islands of Lanai, Molokini and Kahoolawe here in Hawaii. Once you set foot on the warm sand of Kihei's palm tree fringed beach, you won't want to ever leave.
