Some call Maui, Hawaii's second-largest island, the Valley Isle or one of the Magic Isles. No matter what you call it, the white-, red-, and black-sand beaches, bright blue water, and wealth of dramatic scenery, from volcanoes to jungles, are sure to spice up any tropical vacation. Maui attractions include Lahaina, an old whaling town, and Haleakala Crater. The island is especially popular with families, golfers, adventurers, and newlyweds.

Flights to Maui land at Kahului Airport, the primary airport on the island.
