o-HONOLUA-BAY-MAUI-570If you live on Maui, you know that Maui is No Ka Oi (the best) but it’s nice to see that our visitors feel the same way!  Of all the places in the world, Maui has been voted “The Best Island In The World” and “The World’s Best Vacation Destination” by the readers of Conde’ Nast Traveler Magazine for decades.

The Smith family of Ocean Vodka is proud of their Maui heritage, calling this beautiful island playground home and work for three generations.  The mission of Ocean Vodka is to create a superior organic, value-added agricultural product from Hawaii (Maui!) that supports the local economy, competes globally based on quality and raises awareness for ocean conservation.

In the annual Conde Nast Traveler Readers’ Choice Awards that selects the Top 25 Islands in the World, Maui has come out on top for 20 consecutive years. It also regained its top ranking in the Top 10 Islands in the United States. How could Maui stay so popular for so long?

Excerpted from this article in The Huffington Post, top 20 reasons Maui is No Ka Oi.
