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.
Attractions like Ka'anapali Beach and Kamaole Beach Park III make great kid-friendly stops. Take a break from the city and head to Scuba & Snorkeling and Wailea Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Kihei: Lahaina (Slaughterhouse Beach, Napili Beach, & more), Kapalua (Kapalua Plantation Course, Kapalua Resort, & more) and Baby Beach, Sprecklesville Area (in Spreckelsville). And it doesn't end there: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center, play a few rounds at Maui Nui Golf Club, enjoy the sand and surf at Ulua Beach, and stroll through Kalepolepo Beach Park.

For photos, where to stay, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Kihei trip planner.

San Diego to Kihei is an approximately 7.5-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from San Diego to Kihei due to the time zone difference. Plan for somewhat warmer temperatures traveling from San Diego in March, with highs in Kihei at 82°F and lows at 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Hana.

Hana is one of the most isolated communities in Hawaii, with a permanent population of just over 1,000 people.
Step out of the city life by going to Hana Highway - Road to Hana and Red Sand Beach (Kaihalulu Beach). Attractions like Wai'anapanapa State Park and Hamoa Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Hana: Wailua Valley State Wayside Park (in Kula), Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park) and Kipahulu (Palapala Ho'omau Church & Charles Lindbergh's Grave). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Honokalani Black Sand Beach, take in the exciting artwork at Hana Coast Gallery, appreciate the history behind Fagan's Cross, and ride a horse along Pipiwai Trail.
