Overview
Native Hawaiians tell us how Maui got its name in the legend of Hawai'iloa, who was a Polynesian navigator who discovered of the Hawaiian Islands. According to the legend, Hawai'iloa named the island of Maui after his son, who was named after the demigod Maui. Maui is also called the "Valley Isle" because of the large isthmus between the northwestern and the southeastern volcanoes of Maui and the numerous large valleys carved into those mountains. In fact, Maui's landscapes are the result of a combination of the geology, the topography, and the climate of Maui; and each of the "volcanic cones" in the Hawaiian Islands (including Maui) is built of dark, iron-rich, quartz-poor rocks, poured out of thousands of vents as liquid lava, over millions of years. Maui is a "volcanic doublet," formed from two shield volcanoes that overlapped to form an isthmus between them. However, the main thing about Maui is its true Aloha spirit; and when you go to Maui, be sure to revel in it. Go native, hit the beaches, have a barbecue on the beach, visit the Maui Aquarium, sit on a surfboard in the warm Maui water, and taste a piece of sugar cane. Shop in Lahaina. Travel all around the island. Most of all, smell the sweetness of the flowers and bask in the light of the Maui sunsets AND look for the FREE video that goes with this book ("The Deep Blue Sea") on the Bellissimavideo YouTube channe
