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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kahekili Beach Park and Kamaole Beach Park III. We've included these beaches for you: Makena Beach and Napili Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Kapalua Beach (in Kapalua) and Zipline (in Haiku). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Ho'okipa Beach Park, stroll through Wailea Beach, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and sample the tasty concoctions at Maui Brewing Company.

To see reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Kihei online travel planner .

Detroit to Kihei is an approximately 12-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight. Traveling from Detroit to Kihei, you'll gain 5 hours due to the time zone difference. Prepare for much warmer weather when traveling from Detroit in April: high temperatures in Kihei hover around 85°F and lows are around 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) to allow time to 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.
On the 14th (Sun), take in nature's colorful creations at Liliuokalani Gardens, enjoy the sand and surf at Richardson Beach Park, and then contemplate the geological forces at Kīlauea. On the 15th (Mon), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: take in nature's colorful creations at Akatsuka Orchid Gardens, trek along Kilauea Iki Trailhead, admire all the interesting features of Devastation Trail, then explore the striking landscape at Holei Sea Arch, and finally cruise along Chain of Craters Rd.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Volcano trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

Traveling by flight from Kihei to Volcano takes 4.5 hours. Alternatively, you can do a combination of flight and bus. In April, plan for daily highs up to 81°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) so you can travel to Hanalei.

And it doesn't end there: kick back and relax at Hanalei Beach, identify plant and animal life at Hanalei National Wildlife Refuge, and pause for some serene contemplation at Wai`oli Hui`ia Church.

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.
Get some historical perspective at USS Arizona Memorial and Makapuu Lighthouse Trail. Explore hidden gems such as Lanikai Beach and Scuba & Snorkeling. Change things up with these side-trips from Honolulu: Kailua (Kayaking & Canoeing & Kailua Beach Park) and Ko Olina Lagoons (in Kapolei). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, tour the pleasant surroundings at Koko Crater Railway Trail, admire the verdant scenery at Nu’uanu Pali, and kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach.

To see maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Honolulu trip website .
