There is a saying in Hawaii: "Maui no ka oi." Maui is the best.

Makena is one of the Hawai'ian islands' most beautiful beaches. Crescent-shaped with soft, golden sand and turquoise waters, the beach faces Molokini, a partially submerged extinct volcano 2.5 miles from shore.




Above, a humpback whale spouts off in the warm waters off the southern coast. The whales come here in the wintertime to breed before migrating north to Alaska for the Summer.



Above, sunrise along the Road to Hana.



Above, Haleakala Volcano in early morning. The summit is 10,023 ft. above sea level and the crater is large enough to contain the entire island of Manhattan, including the skyscrapers.
