Lahaina

— 7 nights

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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church and Maui On Metal. Step off the beaten path and head to Ho'okipa Beach Park and Makena Beach. Explore Lahaina's surroundings by going to Kihei (Kamaole Beach Park II & Kamaole Beach Park III) and Wailea (Little Beach, Maluaka Beach, &more). There's still lots to do: meet some fierce fish with a shark diving experience, contemplate the long history of Old Lahaina Courthouse, explore the activities along Lahaina Harbor, and kick back and relax at Baby Beach.

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.
