Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0896104435, Paperback)

The Essential Guides to the Hawaiian islands are both written and published in Hawaii. As such, they have the most up-to-date information, ant they uncover many local favorites that are off the beaten track.

The "Essential Guide to Maui" covers everything you’ll need to know for a great Maui vacation, including sections on the islands of Molokai and Lanai, both part of Maui County.

Stunning photographs by Ron Dahlquist, on of Maui’s most acclaimed photographers, and Honolulu-based Veronica Carmona, whose work has appeared in "Travel and Leisure" and "Sunset," provide visual counterpoints to the text. These are supplemented with archival photographs and artwork by many of Maui’s leading artists.

New maps were created for the book, many of them dramatic three-dimensional depictions of Maui’s mountains and valleys.

In addition to information about where to stay and what to see, the "Essential Guide to Maui" provides in-depth material about Hawaii’s history and culture. Throughout the book, sidebars tell about ancient Hawaiian legends, art and customs. The emphasis in this guidebook is on places and activities that exhibit a distinctly Hawaiian flavor, that honor and perpetuate the culture of the native Hawaiians.

Included are favorite places to eat, many of which won’t be listed in most tourist publications. Luxury hotels and resorts are described in depth. In addition, listings of bed and breakfasts and cottage rentals provide information about more affordable accommodations.

Our top ten essentials, given at the beginning of the book, will help make your Maui vacation an unforgettable experience. With the "Essential Guide to Maui," you will discover how truly remarkable this tropical paradise is.
