From the volcanic slopes of Haleakala, to the luxury resorts of Kaanapali, "The Valley Isle" blends the charm of the past with modern-day-excitement. Haleakala National Park is home to Maui's highest peak of the same name. Haleakala means, "house of the sun." Visitors flock to the park to see the magnificent not-to-be-missed sunrise.
Meanwhile, Maui has some of the best whale watching in the world. Whale-watching season is in full swing from early November until mid-May and the island's south and west shores are some of the best spots for sightings. You can get an even better view on a guided boat tour.
