In addition to being Hawaii’s capital city and largest city, Maui is one of Hawaii’s two counties; it is located 350 miles southwest of Honolulu at the crossroads of State Routes 46 and 270 on Hawaii’s Big Island.

Maui is the second-largest island in Hawaii and the most populous. The county seat is Kihei, located on Maui’s west coast. The population of Maui County was 201,307 at the 2010 Census, making it the state’s fourth most populous county (after Honolulu County, Kauai County, and Oahu).
