Maui Island, Hawaii

Coconut trees on Hawaiian beach

Hawaii is the 50th state of the United States of America and is one of two states which do not have a common boundary with Continental United States of America. The other state is Alaska. However, there is a world of difference between Hawaii and Alaska. Alaska has a long cold winter and a short, cool summer. Hawaii is warm all year round and is ideal for tourism. In fact, people from Continental United States of America plus people from other parts of the world find it a conducive and pleasant place to spen their vacations. Some even retire there.

Hawaii consists of 6 main islands (some says eight) in the Pacific ocean, of which Maui is the second largest. Maui was formed from the eruption of 2 adjacent volcanoes, with an isthmus connecting them. It is popular with people from mainland America. Makena, a small residential area is closely related to Wailea which is just a few miles north of Makena. Often, the two are lumped together. You can get more information about Makena from Information for Makena, Maui, Hawaii. The Makena beach, which some call the Big Beach has been touted as one of the best beachs on Maui Island and is a good place to spend your vacation by the seaside.

Hawaiian Beach Rental is a site that offers convenient choices of vacation rentals, condominiums and hotels which you can book online. Among the choices they offer are Wailea Makena Condos. However, if condominiums are not what you are looking for, they also have Maui Vacation Rentals (at time of publishing, there are 157 of them for you to chose from) and Maui Hotels (270 of them).

And if you are travelling from Continental United States, you can also take advantages of attractive prices on airfare, hotel and rental car from Hawaiian Vacation Packages.
