The locals say “Maui No Ka Oi,” meaning “Maui is the best.” With its warm waters, beautiful beaches, famous rainbows, magnificent sunsets, and oceans of activities, it is no surprise Maui offers the ultimate island paradise getaway. Formed from two overlapping shield volcanoes, the geographically-diverse island offers a wide variety of DMC Maui activities to explore on both land and sea, where you can do as much or as little as you like. If relaxing with a Mai Tai under a palm tree and indulging in treatments at the endless number of luxurious day spas sounds like you, or instead you prefer to get out and about in amongst the action, Maui’s diversity has something for everyone, including swimming in waterfall pools, chartering a boat to go diving or snorkeling on the reef, getting a birds-eye view of the island from a helicopter, bike riding down a volcano, playing a round of golf at the countless award-winning courses or visiting the farmer's market.
Maui has also been gaining newfound attention as its culinary options continue to grow, with new restaurants and food trucks utilizing local, organic produce to create innovative farm-to-table dishes and interesting spins on Hawai‘i favourites. Offsite dinner options include dining on an exclusive beachside location, a cocktail and canape sailing adventure, dinner amongst the vines at a winery or a degustation menu at Maui’s Tropical Plantation. Although the island may be small, Maui offers so many wonderful options for your next Maui DMC program or special event.
