Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Whalers Village Museum and Palapala Ho'omau Church. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Wailea Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Lahaina (Zipline, Napili Beach, & more), Charles Lindbergh's Grave (in Kipahulu) and Pipiwai Trail (in Haleakala National Park). And it doesn't end there: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Kamaole Beach Park II, stroll through Ho'okipa Beach Park, and admire the masterpieces at Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center.

To find other places to visit, ratings, photos, and tourist information, read Kihei travel planner.

London, UK to Kihei is an approximately 22-hour flight. You'll gain 10 hours traveling from London to Kihei due to the time zone difference. Prepare for warmer weather when traveling from London in March: high temperatures in Kihei hover around 32°C and lows are around 21°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sun) early enough to travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Kailua-Kona ©
Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Step off the beaten path and head to Zipline and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area. Popular historic sites such as Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Kealakekua Bay are in your itinerary. Explore Kailua-Kona's surroundings by going to Jagger Museum (in Volcano) and Kilauea Iki Trailhead (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park). Spend the 19th (Mon) on the water with a fishing tour. And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay), relax in the rural setting at Greenwell Farms, take an in-depth tour of H.N. Greenwell Store Museum, and browse the exhibits of Kona Coffee Living History Farm.

Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and USS Arizona Memorial are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Shark Diving and Lanikai Beach. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park), Swim with Dolphins (in Waianae) and Kailua Beach Park (in Kailua). The adventure continues: hike along Koko Crater Trail, identify plant and animal life at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, take some stellar pictures from Nuuanu Pali Lookout, and stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific.

For traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, read our Honolulu itinerary planner.

You can fly from Kailua-Kona to Honolulu in 4 hours. In March, daily temperatures in Honolulu can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 23°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 29th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
