Leave the surf behind and follow Shelley Seale into the mountains of Hawaii to discover an array of boutique farms, January 2018
The Hawaiian island of Maui is a beach-and-ocean lover’s dream. Known as the “Valley Isle,” the coastline is dotted with pristine white and black sand beaches and a diverse array of water-based adventures.
