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.
Visit Wailea Beach and Wailea Beach Path for some beach relaxation. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kapalua Beach and Ho'okipa Beach Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kihei: Mantokuji Temple Mission of Paia (in Paia), D.T. Fleming Park (in Kapalua) and Lahaina (Whalers Village Museum & Napili Beach). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Ulua Beach, don't miss a visit to McGregor Point Light, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kamaole Beach Park III, and get interesting insight from Tours.

Honolulu

Big Pineapple

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Explore hidden gems such as Sharks Cove and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Relax by the water at Kapiolani Regional Park and Sunset Beach Park. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Kailua (Lanikai Beach & Kailua Beach Park) and Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Saint Augustine by-the-Sea, explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, examine the collection at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, and see the world from above with a helicopter tour.

The Valley Isle
The second largest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands, Maui features a rugged landscape ranging from high mountain peaks to deep valleys. Half of Maui lies within 8 km (5 mi) of the coastline, and most tourists come for the sandy beaches, many of them backed by fashionable resorts offering every modern convenience. Diversity of tourist attractions is Maui's major allure, with each of the island's shores offering a different set of vacation ideas. You can swim with dolphins, snorkel with sea turtles, or hike over the otherworldly landscapes of the world's biggest dormant volcano. A foodie paradise, the island also features dozens of small farms and gourmet restaurants.

The Gathering Place
A top cultural and vacation destination within the Hawaiian Islands, Oahu is home to over 85 percent of the state's population. Aptly nicknamed the "Gathering Place," the island is truly at the heart of Hawaii, featuring the busy city of Honolulu and its surrounding districts. Visitors to Oahu can enjoy all the modern conveniences of a large city, while remaining within walking distance of secluded beaches, picturesque parks, high mountain peaks, and quaint little towns. To experience the laid-back side of Hawaii, take a trip away from the tourist hotspot of Waikiki, the island's most crowded neighborhood.
