Totaling just under 11,000 square feet, the Hawaiian island of Maui feels like a small town in the tropics. It’s not all beaches and surf like you might think — Maui’s eco systems range from desert-like Kaupo to the moonscape of Haleakala volcano to the jungles of Hana and Kipahulu. Not to mention Upcountry, where the evenings are cool and the tree of choice isn’t your typical palm tree but the eucalyptus. You will find all sorts of people here too, from those growing their own food and living off the grid to the the affluent staying at upscale hotels in Wailea. There is a place for everyone here. No wonder they call it paradise.
