The island of Maui, part of the world famous Hawaiian island archipelago is a budding and highly attractive tourist attraction for many reasons. Another great opportunity to enjoy Hawaii and Maui in particular, however, is in the real estate market. The most historic city on Maui is the community of Lahaina, which once served as the capital of the Hawaii Kingdom and as a major whaling port. Lahaina is a dream destination for shoppers and sightseers in addition to boasting such historic and culturally significant attractions as the Banyan Tree, Maria Lanakila Church, the Lahaina Jodo Mission, the Whalers Village, and Kaanapali Beach. Beaches represent a good deal of the attractiveness of Maui in the real estate market, offering activities such as surfing, sunbathing, swimming, and snorkeling.
The North Shore of the island of Maui is famous for Mokuleia Bay, Honolua Bay, Boulder Beach, Kahakuloa, and the Kaukini Gallery and Gift Shop, while Central Maui is home to the largest city on Maui, Kahului, several shopping centers, and the lush valleys that give Maui the nickname of the “Valley Isle”. Some other attractions include the Maui Tropical Plantation, the Maui Ocean Center, and Kepaniwai Park and Heritage Gardens. The Wailea Coast is another interesting destination, and here one can find Ma’alaea Bay and Beach, the Kealia Pond Bird Sanctuary, Wailea Beach, and the volcano Haleakala. Haleakala, part of rural Maui, is a dormant volcano that bears massive religious and cultural significance for the Hawaiian people and that offers beautiful views and an outstanding lookout.
