Maui is the second-largest island of Hawaii at 727 square miles (1883 km²). The Island of Maui is also called the "Valley Isle" for the large fertile isthmus between its two volcanoes. The island had a population of 117,644 in 2000. The population is diverse, with many ethnic groups having originally arrived in the islands to work sugar cane and pineapple plantations from countries of the Western Pacific rim. Maui is part of Maui County with larger towns on Maui Island include Kahului, Wailuku, Lāhainā, and Kīhei. We visited Maui in 2005 and took many pictures of this paradise and displayed here for you to enjoy! If you want to see flowers from Maui, please visit the Maui Flower page.
