Maui is the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands. The origin of the name is found in the legend of Hawaiʻiloa, the navigator credited with discovery of the Hawaiian Islands. According to the legend, Hawaiʻiloa named the island after his son, who in turn was named for the demigod Māui. The earlier name of Maui was “Ihikapalaumaewa.” The Island of Maui is also called the “Valley Isle” for the large isthmus separating its northwestern and southeastern volcanic masses. It is the best place to enjoy world-famous beaches, the sacred Iao Valley, views of migrating humpback whales (during winter months), farm-to-table cuisine and the magnificent sunrise and sunset from Haleakala.
