Lahaina

Crown Jewel of Maui

Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Get out of town with these interesting Lahaina side-trips: Wailea Beach (in Wailea), Helicopter Tours (in Kahului) and Iao Valley (in Wailuku). There's much more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Wildlife Areas, relax in the rural setting at Punakea Palms, take a stroll through Lahaina Front Street, and kick back and relax at Napili Beach.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Lahaina attractions planner.

The Valley Isle
The second largest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands, Maui features a rugged landscape ranging from high mountain peaks to deep valleys. Half of Maui lies within 8 km (5 mi) of the coastline, and most tourists come for the sandy beaches, many of them backed by fashionable resorts offering every modern convenience. Diversity of tourist attractions is Maui's major allure, with each of the island's shores offering a different set of vacation ideas. You can swim with dolphins, snorkel with sea turtles, or hike over the otherworldly landscapes of the world's biggest dormant volcano. A foodie paradise, the island also features dozens of small farms and gourmet restaurants.
