The island of Maui has captivated the hearts of Travel + Leisure readers once again. Maui retained the No. 1 spot on the magazine’s list of “Top Islands in Hawai‘i” in its 2015 “World’s Best Awards” readers’ survey, to be published in the upcoming August issue. On Travel + Leisure’s list of “Top 10 Islands Overall,” Maui is ranked No. 7 in the world. Stellar food, friendly people, lots to do and, of course, spectacular beaches – Maui is a pretty perfect package according to T+L readers.

“We are proud to receive this wonderful recognition from Travel + Leisure readers, and share this honor with the visitor industry and people of Maui that continue to make our island a remarkable, world-class destination,” said Terryl Vencl, executive director of the Maui Visitors and Convention Bureau.

According to Travel + Leisure, its annual “World’s Best Awards” are determined by discerning readers who cast votes for the hotels, destinations and companies that make up the final awardees lists. Collectively, the lists define the very best in worldwide travel.

Island rankings are based on readers’ ratings of these five characteristics: natural attractions/beaches, activities/sights, restaurants/food, people/friendliness, and value.
