Maui is a second home to me. I have been visiting the island with my family since we were little and I learned how to scuba dive here on the island. The place has changed quite a bit throughout the years, but it still maintains a timeless tropical charm perfect for an adventurous soul. This guide provides a bit of mish-mash on everything – from local tips and tricks to luxury accommodations. Indulge in the well of natural beauty that Maui has to offer and don’t forget to eat plenty of pineapple.
