Thanks in large part to the 81 beautiful beaches, stunningly picturesque views, endless romantic activities and top notch accommodations, its not surprising that so many couples choose to say 'I Do' on the Valley Isle. In addition, Maui's Pride Festival is held the first weekend of every October, and is a fun and friendly event to "encourage, celebrate, and educate all people of the positive diversity of the LGBTQ community. While not quite as glamorous or spacious as many mainland bars or nightclubs, rest assured that it's one of the very few places on Maui that get livelier after 10pm.
From the top of 10,foot Mt. Haleakala the views, especially at sunrise and sunset, are stunning. There are waterfalls, lush tropical foliage, rough surf below step rocky cliffs, sandy beaches, and quaint old towns to be found in this in this year-round warm and sunny climate.
Can anyone help give the rundown of "gay Maui? I was looking at the Maui Sunseeker, but the reviews are mostly negative, and those that are glowing have been posted by people with one contribution. It seems the hotel may be a semi-nude hotel and slightly drab and in need of a good cleaning.

For the queer couple seeking a romantic haven, the island of Maui is waiting to welcome you with bright rainbow leis. From snorkeling, to whale-watching and lounging on a remote gay beach, Maui is paradise found. Whether you want to surf, canoe or kayak, opportunities abound on gay Maui for the outdoor enthusiast.
Couples have been vacationing and honeymooning here for decades. Want to take the ultimate road trip along Maui's East Coast? The island is a premier whale watching destination, with Humpback Whales wintering off the coast annually.
Maui consists of two mountain ranges, massive Haleakala, a dormant shield volcano, in the east, and the West Maui Mountains — actually the remains of an older, extinct volcano — to the west, connected by an isthmus which forms the low-lying central plain. It was also a major center of the whaling industry during the 19th century. Now, Lahaina is known most as a tourist destination, her famed Front Street a busy thoroughfare of shops and restaurants, terminating in the Banyan Tree Square at the south end, site of an enormous banyan tree as well as the reconstructed ruins of Lahaina Fort.

In the heart of Honolulu's hip and increasingly trendy Chinatown neighborhood, Bar 35 is a great all-around place to sip drinks inside at the long bar or out on the patio, and to nibble on exceptionally tasty pizza. Try the pie topped with Chinese sausage, sweet chili sauce, cilantro, tomato sauce, and mozzarella.
This exquisite piece was custom designed and built to match the old world look of The Haiku Mill. We looked high and low to find a bar that not only matched the colors, but the entire breath-taking look with no avail, so we finally decided to build it ourselves. This timeless bar perfectly compliments the rustic feel that many of our couples are envisioning for their special day.
However, the views were magnificent and blissfully distracting as we flew low and closely hugged the coast, leaving behind the Big Island with its turquoise waters and rugged black volcanic landscapes. As we neared the island of Maui the lush, emerald green, mountainous terrain appeared rimmed with small tourist towns clinging to its radiant coastline. Safely on land again, we organised our rental car, a necessity on this island. This is possibly the best location for gay men to stay, due to its proximity to Little Beach the gay beachavailability of ample accommodation options, streets of shopping and restaurants and, of course, gay friendly Ambrosia Bar.
