Maui Nō Ka ʻOi Magazine

Maui No Ka ʻOi celebrates the people, places, cultures and adventures that make “Maui no ka ʻoi” (the best Hawaiian island).


May-June 2018

Six times a year, the magazine brings stories by award-winning writers and photographers to subscribers and newsstands. Each issue presents an engaging and informative dining section headed by an editor who is both a trained chef and a master gardener; explorations into Hawaiian culture guided by respected practitioners; activities by land, air and sea; an open door into distinctive island homes; a Maui events calendar; and a “day in the life” of Maui people whose jobs range from cowboy to astrophysicist to hula dancer. The magazine’s coverage of issues important to residents — from cane burning, to GMOs, to struggles over water rights between agribusinesses and indigenous farmers — is consistently thoughtful and objective.

Recognized by the Western Publishing Association as one of the best regional magazines west of the Mississippi, Maui Nō Ka ʻOi appears in mailboxes and on newsstands throughout the United States, in seven foreign countries . . . and right here, any time you need aloha!

*Note on Hawaiian language and proper spelling:
In Maui Nō Ka ʻOi’s print edition, we include the okina and kahako marks used in proper spelling of Hawaiian words. Due to compatibility issues with some web browsers and search engines, we may omit them on this website.
