Maui is deceivingly big and small at the same time.
It’s the second-largest of the Hawaiian Islands, and those 727.2 square miles isn’t all that easy to access. There are roads that don’t connect and, well, large mountains in the way.
And yet, it’s small enough that you can check the surf at Hookipa, grab coffee in Makawao, eat a chicken pot pie in Lahaina, taste wine in Ulupalakua and be back at your hotel in Paia before your dinner reservations.
Trust me, I did it.
