Maui Ranked #1 Island in Both the US & the World


I hate to say it, but this is somewhat of a regular thing. We are always rated #1 in some survey at any given time. This time is sweet. You'll see why!

Big Beach, Makena

The TripAdvisor's annual results for best island in the US and the world are out and Maui has topped both. The state did quite well in the U.S. ratings. See the other top 5 islands in the U.S.:

2. Key West, Florida 3. Oahu, Hawaii 4. Hawaii Island, Hawaii 5. Mount Desert Island Maine

Maui came out ahead of the other Hawaiian islands by far in the world category. See the other top 5 islands in the world:

2. Santorini, Cyclades 3. Jamaica 4. Providenciales, Turks and Caicos 5. Bali, Indonesia

The travel review and booking company based the award on travelers' reviews over the past year. Of particular importance to see on Maui are the Haleakala Crater, Ka'anpali Beach, and Wai'napanapa State Park.
