Maui a popular stop for LGBT travelers


According to study, most come for the scenery, not to meet other LGBT people


Matt Skallerud's insight:

Maui is the second-most visited island for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender travelers from the United States, but it is top amongst Canadians and third amongst Australians, according to a study released by the Hawai’i Tourism Authority in March.

Over the past five years, Oahu was the most visited island at 49 percent of U.S. participants, followed by Maui at 42 percent, Hawaii island at 37 percent and Kauai at 26 percent. Not as many had been to Lanai (3 percent) or Molokai (2 percent).
