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.
Get outdoors at Kamaole Beach Park II and Ho'okipa Beach Park. We've included these beaches for you: Kamaole Beach Park III and Makena Beach. The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Wailea Beach, work some fitness into your day at Wailea Beach Path, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and experience rural life at Maui Tropical Plantation.

Plan a trip to Kihei easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

Montreal, Canada to Kihei is an approximately 12-hour combination of flight and taxi. You can also do a combination of train, flight, and taxi; or do a combination of bus, flight, and taxi. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Montreal to Kihei. Traveling from Montreal in August, expect Kihei to be somewhat warmer, temps between 38°C and 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Tue) to allow time to travel to Volcano.

Volcano, Island of Hawaii

Volcano ©
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 14th (Wed): shop like a local with Volcano Art Center, examine the collection at Jagger Museum, then take in the natural beauty of Steam Vents, then trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, and finally take in the dramatic natural features at Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku).

For other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Volcano journey planner.

You can do a combination of taxi, flight, and bus from Kihei to Volcano in 3 hours. Traveling from Kihei in August, you will find days in Volcano are slightly colder (34°C), and nights are about the same (25°C). Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Relax by the water at Sharks Cove and Lanikai Beach. Discover out-of-the-way places like Sunset Beach Park and Ko Olina Lagoons. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Green World Coffee Farms (in Wahiawa), Haleiwa (Scuba & Snorkeling & Waimea Valley) and Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument (in Pupukea). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, add some adventure to your tour with a kayaking and canoeing tour, appreciate the views at Nuuanu Pali Lookout, and pause for some photo ops at Queen Liliuokalani Statue.

For photos, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Honolulu trip planner .

Traveling by combination of bus and flight from Volcano to Honolulu takes 4.5 hours. August in Honolulu sees daily highs of 36°C and lows of 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel to Hanalei.
