Maui has something for everybody. Do pay a visit to Lahaina, once
a major whaling center. Nearby is the lush Iao Valley State Park. A must-see is the Hana Highway with just past Hana the
scenic cascading pools of Oheo Gulch.
Divers like the famous Molokini drift dive and everybody likes the colorful Haleakala
