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.
Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Ka'anapali Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Lahaina Front Street and Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lahaina: Saint Theresa Roman Catholic Church (in Kihei), Wailea (Maluaka Beach & Wailea Beach) and Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center (in Makawao). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church, take an in-depth tour of Baldwin Home Museum, take in the exciting artwork at Reeflections Fine Art Gallery, and examine the collection at Whalers Village Museum.

To find traveler tips, more things to do, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Lahaina planner.

San Francisco to Lahaina is an approximately 7-hour flight. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. When traveling from San Francisco in December, plan for a bit warmer days and much hotter nights in Lahaina: temperatures range from 78°F by day to 68°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Wed) to allow enough time to fly to Hana.

Hana is one of the most isolated communities in Hawaii, with a permanent population of just over 1,000 people.

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.
