If one island encompasses all of Hawaii's tropical enticements, it's Maui.
Endowed with an array of remarkable natural and man-made attractions,
plus an influx of extravagant luxury resorts and award-winning gourmet
restaurants, Maui is quickly surpassing Oahu as the destination island
of choice. The spectacular contours of the west Maui mountains and the
lush tropical forest of the windward coast hold their own against Kauai's
renowned gardens. Maui's Haleakala Crater, the world's largest dormant
volcano, is as incredible as the Big Island's lava filled volcanic parks.
Combine all this with the annual humpback whale migration to Maui's coastal
waters, and it's easy to see why tourists and residents alike agree that
Maui is the best.
While the majority of resorts line the sunny leeward coast of west and
southwest Maui, the most spectacular attractions- the Hana Highway, Haleakala
Crater and the upcountry are spread across the island, so schedule a few
days to explore them all.

Many tourists consider Kauai the most beautiful of all the islands, and they
keep coming back year after year. Hollywood also keeps returning to Kauai.
Over the years, at least twelve films have been made on the island, including
South Pacific, Jurassic Park, and Raiders of the Lost Ark. Kauai offers three
distinct areas to stay. The south shore, east Kauai and the north shore.
Nearly always sunny, with broad white beaches, generally calm seas, and a
profusion of tropical plants and trees, the southern coast of Kauai has been
one of the most popular destinations on the island. Vacationers flock to the
resorts at Poipu to enjoy tennis, good restaurants, and luxurious lodging
as well as excellent swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving and surfing.
Midway up the east coast of Kauai are the resort areas of Wailua and Kapaa.
Once the private preserve of Hawaii's Alii (royalty), this is now the most
popular tourist area on the island. It offers good beaches, a river that winds
through tropical forests and dependable weather.
Beautiful and remote, the northern coast of Kauai has a huge array of riches,
white-sand beaches, luminous Hanalei Bay, numerous waterfalls, and places
to camp, hike, swim, surf, snorkel, golf and play tennis.
