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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Old Lahaina Courthouse and Baldwin Home Museum. Discover out-of-the-way places like Ho'okipa Beach Park and Honolua Bay. Get out of town with these interesting Lahaina side-trips: Wailea (Keawakapu Beach, Makena Beach, & more), Zipline (in Haiku) and Karen Lei's Gallery (in Kahakuloa). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Ka'anapali Beach, walk around D.T. Fleming Park, hike along Kapalua Coastal Trail, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kamaole Beach Park II.
