Kihei

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Kihei: Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park), Lahaina (Lahaina Banyan Court, Ka'anapali Beach, & more) and Maui Veterans Cemetery (in Makawao). There's still lots to do: take a memorable drive along Hana Highway - Road to Hana, observe the fascinating underwater world at Maui Ocean Center, stroll through Hamoa Beach, and kick back and relax at Ulua Beach.

To find ratings, photos, and more tourist information, read our Kihei online trip planner .

Reno to Kihei is an approximately 8.5-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Pacific Standard Time (PST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 2 hours. Plan for somewhat warmer nights when traveling from Reno in August since evenings lows in Kihei dip to 73°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Mon) to allow time to travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach), Pupukea (Ehukai Beach Park & Pu’u O Mahuka Heiau State Monument) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Waikiki Beach, steep yourself in history at Iolani Palace, take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument, and enjoy the sand and surf at Turtle Bay Beach.

To see more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Honolulu vacation planning app .

Traveling by flight from Kihei to Honolulu takes 2.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of taxi and flight; or do a combination of car and flight. In August in Honolulu, expect temperatures between 88°F during the day and 75°F at night. On the 19th (Mon), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
