Daniel K. Inouye International Airport (HNL), formerly Honolulu International Airport, serves 27 international and domestic airlines including Delta Air Lines, three inter-island airlines, and four commuter airlines. There are 47 gates in three concourses – Central, Diamond Head, and Ewa –plus inter-island and commuter terminals.
Flying into Maui through Kahului Airport (OGG) allows visitors to enter the smaller island. It also receives both overseas and interisland flights, though most of the airport’s traffic comes straight from Honolulu.
Spend the day on Waikiki Beach, soaking up the sun and learning to surf. Stroll the main strip along Kalakaua Avenue and dine, shop, and people watch.
For a more remote beach experience where the marine life is more abundant than people, visit Hanauma Bay State Park. Located in the cone of a volcanic crater, the bay is an ideal place for swimming and snorkeling.
Hike Leahi, aka Diamond Head, a volcanic crater and one of Hawaii’s most famous landmarks. The moderately challenging trail offers spectacular views of Waikiki.
Visit the World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument at Pearl Harbor, commemorating the lives lost in that 1941 attack. Visitors take a boat ride out to the U.S.S. Arizona Memorial, where they can view the ship’s sunken hull in the water.
Experience the diversity of Hawaii’s cuisine, a creative combination of Polynesian and Asian foods and techniques. Traditional dishes include poke, kalua pig, lomi-lomi salmon, shaved ice, and manapua, a type of steamed bun.
Maui is truly an enchanted paradise that thrills visitors with spectacular views, incredibly unique experiences, lush, vibrant rain forests and beaches of every color. From adventurers and golfers, to spa enthusiasts and families, this island is sure to please.
With a multitude of activities, there’s never a dull moment on Maui. Drive the Road to Hana to explore a lava tube, look out over a towering bluff to watch experienced surfers ride huge waves, and soak up breathtaking vistas with trickling waterfalls. Watch the sunrise from atop Mount Haleakala. Snorkel or dive at Ahihi-Kinau Natural Area Reserve to spot a pod of dolphins, a bale of sea turtles and other sea life. Go for a high-altitude wine tasting with expansive views of Maui’s Central Valley and the West Maui Mountains at Hawaii’s only commercial winery, Tedeschi Vineyards, sitting 2,000 feet above sea level.
