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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Lahaina Front Street and Lahaina Jodo Mission. Get outdoors at Ka'anapali Beach and Napili Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Wailea Beach (in Wailea) and Saint Theresa Roman Catholic Church (in Kihei). There's still lots to do: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church, and browse the exhibits of Wo Hing Temple Museum.

To find maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and other tourist information, refer to the Lahaina trip planner .

Newark to Lahaina is an approximately 14-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Newark to Lahaina. Traveling from Newark in April, expect nights in Lahaina to be warmer, around 69°F, while days are a bit warmer, around 80°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) to allow time to drive to Hana.
