Maui County encompasses four of the eight islands in the island chain that makes up the State of Hawaii.  These include; the island of Maui, the islands of Molokai and Lanai and the uninhabited island of Kahoolawe. Global Golf Adventure visited both Maui and Lana’i in our first episode. 

"Maui no ka 'oi." In Hawaiian, that means "Maui is the best." And increasing numbers of visitors are echoing that sentiment as they arrive on Maui, Hawaii's second largest island, to explore her many riches. The valleys, golden beaches, forested mountains, grasslands and open plains that make up this storied island are home to some of Hawaii's most famous attractions, such as Haleakala Crater, the old historic whaling town of Lahaina, the road to Hana and over eighty gorgeous and accessible beaches.

The only island in the chain named after a Hawaiian god, Maui remains a magnet for visitors around the globe thanks to a spectacular array of resorts, golf courses, water sports and other recreational diversions.

From the spectacular golf courses to the rugged landscape of the area known as the Garden of the Gods; from Hulopo'e Bay — a marine preserve and one of the best diving spots in the world; from the miles of deserted beaches to the Munroe Trail, best explored by four-wheel drive; and from the quaint town of Lana'i City to Kaunolu, once the summer fishing camp of King Kamehameha, Lana'i offers one of Hawaii's most diverse travel experiences.
