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 out of the city life by going to Kamaole Beach Park II and Kamaole Beach Park III. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Makena Beach and Wailea Beach. There's lots more to do: take a memorable tour with Tours, tour the pleasant surroundings at Wailea Beach Path, and kick back and relax at Ho'okipa Beach Park.

For where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Kihei trip itinerary maker site .

Seattle to Kihei is an approximately 8.5-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and taxi. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 2 hours traveling from Seattle to Kihei. Plan for much hotter temperatures traveling from Seattle in January, with highs in Kihei at 81°F and lows at 63°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Fri) so you can travel to Volcano.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.
Start off your visit on the 19th (Sat): hike along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, then get a taste of the local shopping with Volcano Art Center, then get impressive views of Kīlauea, and finally examine the collection at Jagger Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: immerse yourself in nature at Punalu‘U Beach, then witness a stunning natural landmark at Steam Vents, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku).

To find maps, ratings, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Volcano online route planner .

Getting from Kihei to Volcano by combination of taxi, flight, and bus takes about 3 hours. January in Volcano sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 64°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 20th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get some historical perspective at Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and USS Arizona Memorial. Get some cultural insight at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific and Byodo-In Temple. Get out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Haleiwa (Scuba & Snorkeling, Waimea Valley, & more), Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei) and Lanikai Beach (in Kailua). There's still lots to do: trek along Koko Crater Railway Trail, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, stroll through Turtle Bay Beach, and work some fitness into your day at Ala Moana Beach Park.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Honolulu tour itinerary app .

Do a combination of bus and flight from Volcano to Honolulu in 4.5 hours. January in Honolulu sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 67°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 29th (Tue) to allow time for travel back home.
