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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kihei: Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park) and Lahaina (Lahaina Banyan Court & Ka'anapali Beach). There's much more to do: meet the residents at Maui Ocean Center, stroll through Ho'okipa Beach Park, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and kick back and relax at Wailea Beach.

To find other places to visit, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, use the Kihei driving holiday planner

Auckland Central, New Zealand to Kihei is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You'll gain 22 hours traveling from Auckland Central to Kihei due to the time zone difference. While traveling from Auckland Central, expect somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Kihei, ranging from highs of 34°C to lows of 22°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 6th (Fri) early enough to travel to Honolulu.

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.
Go for a jaunt from Honolulu to Kailua to see Kailua Beach Park about 32 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at USS Arizona Memorial, take a tour of Battleship Missouri Memorial, admire all the interesting features of Diamond Head State Monument, and see the interesting displays at Iolani Palace.
