Over 7 million travellers flock to Hawaii every year, many of them visiting the islands of Maui and Lanai. Maui's beaches win awards for being the best in the world and offshore in the Lahaina Roadstead, yachts, catamarans and parasail riders drift across brilliant porcelain-blue water. "Fodor's Maui and Lanai 2007" provides a comprehensive guide to the best beaches and the dazzling range of watersports. Also, the many places to sample the local cuisine, which ranges from chef-created Hawaii regional to local 'plate lunches' are included. The curious history and mixed cultures of Maui are fully covered by the Arts and Cultural Centre, which includes a theatre and art gallery, and varied local museums. Lanai, for decades known as 'the Pineapple Island' with hundreds of acres pineapple fields, now has hotels and facilities for visitors, but it remains the smallest, most secluded and intimate of Hawaii's islands. Completely updated, this guide features a mix of cultural and practical information, with options in all price ranges.
It includes a chapter on smart travel tips, post-it flags, web addresses, great itineraries and Fodor's choice of sights and activities, hotels, restaurants, shopping and nightlife. Furthermore, to keep up with Maui's booming growth, even more hotels and spa choices have been added. Before you leave for Maui and Lanai be sure to pack your Fodor's guide to make sure you don't miss a thing.
