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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Wailea Beach Path and Makena Beach. Get some cultural insight at Saint Theresa Roman Catholic Church and Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Kihei: Spas & Wellness (in Makawao) and HA Baldwin Beach Park (in Paia). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Ulua Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Little Beach, and tee off at Wailea Blue Golf Course.
