Slow down and embrace island living. Let sea turtles set the pace as you snorkel alongside them. Relax on a beach under palm trees. The only rush is the one you'll get from seeing a pod of dolphins from your kayak. Or from feeling the wind on your face as you bike coastal roads. There's no need to hurry on Maui and Lanai, but your family will want to dive right in.
