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.
Explore Kihei's surroundings by going to Lahaina (Zipline, Ka'anapali Beach, & more) and Kapalua Beach (in Kapalua). There's still lots to do: meet the residents at Maui Ocean Center, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kamaole Beach Park III, see the interesting displays at Hale Ho'ike'ike at the Bailey House, and admire the majestic nature at Iao Valley.
