Maui is beautiful, and a great mix of nature and nightlife. Some of Hawaii's most spectacular sights can be seen here. It is pretty expensive, so hostels are usually a must. Most of the hostels are on the northern shore of Maui, though there a couple others sprinkled about the island.
With white sand beaches and crystal clear waters, Maui is ideal for sunbathing, snorkeling and snoozing! But once you have gotten enough sun, Maui is also a great place for shopping and sightseeing. The old whaling town of Lahaina is home to many quaint shops and eclectic art galleries. On the opposite side of the island, the long road to Hana will lead you to the waterfall fed pools at Oheo Gulch, a perfect place to stretch your legs and take in the view.
