Lahaina

— 6 nights

Crown Jewel of Maui

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.
Attractions like Ka'anapali Beach and Maui Ocean Center make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Kihei (Kamaole Beach Park III & Kalepolepo Beach Park), Iao Valley (in Wailuku) and Helicopter Tours (in Kahului). And it doesn't end there: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, whizz through the canopy at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, walk around Lahaina Banyan Court, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Napili Beach.

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.
