Maui is the second largest Hawaiian island. It has a population just over 100,000 and is 727 square miles in size. The major industries are agriculture and tourism.

Maui was named for the demi-god, who, according to legend, raised all the islands from the sea.

Cities include Lahaina, Kahului, Hana, Wailuku and Wailea. It is the home of Iao Valley.

Maui is a volcanic doublet, built from two volcanos that were originally separate but which now overlap. The older volcano, Mauna Kahalawai, has been so completely eroded that it is no longer considered a volcano except by geologists. It common parlance it is called the West Maui Mountains. The newer volcano, Haleakala, rises above 10,000 feet and dominates south-eastern Maui. The last eruption on Maui occurred 200 years ago, and this lava flow can be viewed at La Perouse on the south shore.
