Lahaina

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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Ho'okipa Beach Park and Makena Beach. Visiting Honolua Bay and Kahekili Beach Park will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Lahaina: Wailea (Maluaka Beach, Wailea Beach Path, &more), Waihee Ridge Trail (in Waihee) and Kalepolepo Beach Park (in Kihei). The adventure continues: tour the pleasant surroundings at Baby Beach, steep yourself in history at Old Lahaina Courthouse, get engrossed in the history at Baldwin Home Museum, and view the masterpieces at Kush Fine Art Gallery.

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.
