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.
You'll explore and learn at Baldwin Home Museum and Lahaina Galleries. Get some cultural insight at Kai Pua Artist Studio and Hui No‘eau Visual Arts Center. Venture out of the city with trips to Parasailing & Paragliding (in Ka'anapali), Lahaina (Maui On Metal, Village Galleries in Lahaina, & more) and Zipline (in Haiku). There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Ho'okipa Beach Park, sample the fine beverages at Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery, discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Maui Brewing Company.
