Top Reasons to “Holo Holo” Around Maui
 
For the last two decades, the Valley Isle has been voted as one of the top 20 islands to visit in the world! Where has Maui ranked this year you might be wondering? According to TripAdvisor, Maui has been voted the best island in the United States, and the second best island on earth. In the world-wide ranking, Maui was second only to Providenciales, located in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We at the Kahili Golf Course believe that Maui will be ranked first next year, and here is why…

Come “Holo Holo” with Kahili Golf Course as we travel around The Valley Isle and show you why Maui is No Ka ‘Oi.

Maui is the second largest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands. Located in the heart of the Pacific Ocean, the Hawaiian Islands are the most isolated island chain in the world. The island of Maui is stunning in topography. Not too many places on earth resemble this spectacular place!

Some of the best beaches on earth can be found here on Maui. Whether you’re sitting with turtles on the  beach at Ho’okipa on the north shore, playing in the shore break at Makena on the south shore, or snorkeling at Honolua Bay on the west side, Maui beaches can provide something to do for just about everyone.

Looking to see some big wave surfing? There is no better place to watch the winter swell come in than on the bluffs overlooking Pe‘ahi. Pe‘ahi, commonly known as “Jaws”, rivals some of the biggest surf-breaks in the world. Admire Pe‘ahi from a far, because only the best big wave surfers from around the world are brave enough to enter the jaws of those colossal waves.

The ʻAlalâkeiki, ʻAuʻau, and Pailolo Channels separate the islands of Maui, Lanaʻi, and Molokaʻi. During the winter, these warm waters are home to some of the biggest animals on earth, the kohola or humpback whale. During the winter, these gentle giants migrate from the colder artic waters to the Hawaiian Islands to give birth and nurse their young. There are many whale watching tours on Maui, but remember that the kohola is a protected species, so please admire their beauty from a far.

Chasing waterfalls? Maui has many of those! Whether you’re in Wai’hee, Hana, Nahiku, or Keanae, you are bound to run into one that will surely take your breath away. The rain that produces the water that creates those gorgeous waterfalls also creates some those beautiful rainbows. When traveling around Maui, be sure to keep looking for a rainbow that will catch your eye.

Maybe the cold is what you are looking for. If it is, travel up to the summit of Haleakala. Haleakala is the largest dormant shield volcano in the world.  Travel to its summit to watch the sunrise, or even the sunset. Haleakala is a National Park, and is home to unique wildlife and plants. At over 10,000 feet above sea-level, the temperature is much colder. Though rare, the summit can receive snow.

Agriculture is another great thing about Maui. Though Hawaii’s last sugar cane plantation will close at the end of the year, there are still many agricultural businesses still thriving; majority of which are located in upcountry Maui. When upcountry, make it a point to visit Aliʻi Kula Lavender Farm, Kula Farms, Surfing Goat Dairy, and Ulupalakula Ranch.

What about a cold beer? Maui has some of that too! Visit the Maui Brewing Company and have yourself a real taste of paradise. The Kahili Golf Course has two of Maui Brewing Company’s beer on tap: Bikini Blonde and Big Swell. The Bikini Blonde is a nice lager that is light, refreshing, and smooth. Maybe and Indian Pale Ale IPA is more your style. The Big Swell is a full-flavored beer that is brewed with four different kinds of Northwestern hops and malted barley. Have yourself one today!

Last, but certainly not least… golf. Maui has some of the best golf around. You can find some of the best golf Maui has to offer here at the Kahili Golf Course. Constructed in 1991, and designed by Robin Nelson and Rodney Wright, Kahili Golf Course is a must play during your time in paradise!  You will experience a day of golf, dining and breathtaking views at one of the best courses Maui has to offer!

So whether you’re hitting the links, relaxing at the beach, driving to Hana, or sitting down and having a cold beer, Maui has something for you. Remember to go out and “Holo Holo” and see why Maui is No Ka ‘Oi!
