Living On The Island of Maui

View of Maui Beach

Moving to Maui is the start of a lifetime adventure. Stand above a sea of clouds high atop Haleakala. Watch a 45-foot whale breach off the coast of Lahaina. Lose count of the waterfalls along the road as you maneuver the zigzag turns of the Hana highway--for these and many reasons, Maui is called “The Magic Isle”. It is the second largest Hawaiian island has a smaller population than people expect.

Maui is separated into 5 distinct regions: West Maui, South Maui, Central Maui, Upcountry Maui and East Maui. The Hawaiian Islands are generally drier on the western, or leeward side, and wetter on the eastern, or windward side. Most Maui resorts can be found in sunny West Maui and South Maui while you can find the lush drive to Hana in East Maui. Haleakala volcano dominates the southeastern region of Maui with a crater 3,000 feet deep and 21 miles around. Learn more about the Maui lifestyle.
