According to some, you can’t have it all. Perhaps those folks haven’t been to Maui, which consistently lands atop travel-magazine reader polls as one of the world’s best, most romantic islands. Why? Most start with its wealth of glorious beaches and go from there: luxe resorts, friendly B&Bs, gourmet cuisine, fantastic luau, and world-class windsurfing, whale watching, snorkeling, diving and hiking. Need adventure? Drive the jungly road to Hana or traverse the moonlike volcanic crater of Haleakala. Want pampering? West Maui awaits your call. Need more? Maui is the gateway to its sister islands of Moloka'i and Lana'i, which are conveniently reached by ferry. But is Maui really all that? Well, it does weave a gauzy spell that leaves most visitors more in love than when they arrived, so you’ll just have to excuse those who, when the magazines call, wax a little enthusiastic.
