Maui, Demigod of the land and sea, hero to all.
Maui the demigod is my god. I am converting to Moanism.

A popular travel destination featuring sandy beaches, world-renowned surfing, Haleakala volcano and rainforests, Maui relies mainly on tourism and is struggling to cope with growing numbers of visitors and development. Maui's natural beauty diminishes each year, as undeveloped beaches and forests are bulldozed to make way for pricey resorts, chain stores, upscale planned communities and sterile golf courses, built to satisfy demands from tourists, developers and their clients. The growth has been largely unregulated, leading to an unbalanced economic system throughout, where prices for housing, food, gas and utilities are very high compared to the rest of the U.S., to garner money from tourists, and wages are extremely low, leading to poverty and crime.

A marketing version of the Hawaiian culture has been used as an advertising ploy to help create Maui's thriving economy, while the local people struggle to survive on subsistence wages. A shortage of drinkable water, affordable housing and opportunity plague members of the population who would be middle-class if they lived anywhere else, but can't afford to move or won't leave the home they love.

Maui's position of being a favored luxury travel destination has led to opportunities for unscrupulous investors, money-hungry real estate agents and numerous profiteers, while the land and rivers have become heavily polluted with industrial waste from agribusinesses, insufficient recycling and garbage disposal and human waste from unregulated dumping, just offshore. However, fine dining, immaculate accommodations and luxury amenities are readily available on Maui, making this a premier vacation destination, for those who can afford it and don't mind the rest.

The second largest Hawaiian Island. Many beautiful sites, although not without its problems. The island is controlled by democrats, meth use is rampant, and sugar cane is grown and burn from time to time. The good side is the high quality marijuana, although very expensive at 20$ a gram. Beautiful beaches surround much of the island.
No, we don't have pearl harbor, thats another Hawaiian Island called Oahu.

Maui is not only a character in “Moana”, a popular children’s movie that older people also like to watch because it’s most definitely cute and you can fall asleep to it.

Maui is also one of the beautiful islands belonging to tropical Hawaii, located in the middle of (nowhere) the Pacific Ocean.
You should definitely go and explore here because Maui is not only a huge tad romantic, it‘s also adventurous.
You can kiss under waterfalls, go on a little road trip to Hana and surf Honolua Bay and Hookipa Beach near Paia, a cute local surfer town where you could stay.
All in all Maui is the place you would take your loved ones to in order to show them how much they mean to you.
Hey love, we‘re flying to Maui!
