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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Wailuku (Iao Valley & Maui Tropical Plantation) and Wailea Beach (in Wailea). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Ka'anapali Beach, make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court, pause for some photo ops at Lahaina Jodo Mission, and contemplate the long history of Wo Hing Temple Museum.
