Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Head to Maui Mike's Beach House and Ali'i Kula Lavender Farmfor plenty of shopping. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Parasailing & Paragliding and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Tutu's Pantry (in Kihei), Wailuku (Iao Valley & Scuba & Snorkeling) and Wailea (Pa'ako Beach (Secret Cove) & Wailea Beach). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Napili Beach, shop like a local with Surf Ripper Shave Ice Co, relax in the rural setting at Surfing Goat Dairy, and stroll through Ho'okipa Beach Park.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, ratings, and tourist information, go to the Lahaina online visit planner .

London, UK to Lahaina is an approximately 22.5-hour combination of flight and bus. You can also fly; or do a combination of flight, taxi, and bus.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
On the 8th (Thu), see the interesting displays at Jagger Museum, then get impressive views of Kīlauea, and then hike along Sulphur Banks. Here are some ideas for day two: view the masterpieces at 2400 Fahrenheit Art Glass, then look for gifts at Hilo Coffee Mill, then trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku).

To see maps, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, read Volcano day trip site .

Relax by the water at Lanikai Beach and Waikiki Beach. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific. Next up on the itinerary: hike along Koko Crater Railway Trail, contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, kick back and relax at Ala Moana Beach Park, and stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial.
