How could one island stay so popular for so long? Especially when you consider that nowadays hype about anything lasts for about 5 minutes.
A mass of travel sites has been perpetually declaring Maui the most popular island on the world, and not just because some random people that manage those sites think so. No, people have been voting Maui as “most wanted” for years and years! Sure, it’s breathtakingly beautiful and heavenly, but aren’t most islands like that? No, really, aren’t they?
Maui is a special little cookie. It has a charm that no other island could ever possess; it’s kind of an “I’m not trying at all” type of a charm. It’s a bit rebellious with a precise dose of glamour needed.
It first started to attract people for its healing energy in the 1960’s and now it attracts people for its flaunting Hollywood A-listers like Kristen Bell and Zac Efron.
The majestic island of Maui attracts people with its Maui Film festival, which is held every year in June in Glossy Wailea in the south.
The North shore is even more posh, due to transplants from Paris, Sao Paoulo and New York putting down their roots there. If you’re more in the mood for a vintage feel, travel 2 hours to Hana, on the eastern side of an island. There you’ll find Maui’s secret waterfalls, pervasive spirituality and empty, wonderful beaches.
Maui residents have a saying which translates to “Maui is the best.” They don’t think it’s egotistical, because it’s true. And to the looks of it, the people of the world agree. Their rich culture is bountiful with top quality art, cuisine, events, scenery, beaches, leisure activity and friendly, welcoming people.
It’s no wonder Maui is the best island in the world when it has basically everything that keeps people coming back year after year, craving for that true joy and imprinting impression.
