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.
Escape the urban bustle at Haleakala Crater and Ho'okipa Beach Park. We've included these beaches for you: Ka'anapali Beach and Wailea Beach. Explore Kihei's surroundings by going to Maui Hands (in Makawao) and Lahaina Banyan Court (in Lahaina). Next up on the itinerary: immerse yourself in nature at Iao Valley and stop by Tutu's Pantry.

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.
Step out of the city life by going to Waikiki Beach and Lanikai Beach. You'll get in some beach time at Sunset Beach Park and Turtle Bay Beach. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Haleiwa (Haleiwa Town Center & Waimea Bay) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's much more to do: contemplate the long history of USS Arizona Memorial, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, stroll through Manoa Falls, and explore and take pictures at Makapu'u Point.
