Kihei

Kihei ©
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.
Step out of the city life by going to Wailea Beach Path and D.T. Fleming Beach Park. Explore hidden gems such as Kamaole Beach Park II and Honolua Bay. Change things up with these side-trips from Kihei: Kapalua Beach (in Kapalua) and Lahaina (Kapalua Coastal Trail, Surf Ripper Shave Ice Co, & more). There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Makena Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Ho'okipa Beach Park, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Maui Brewing Company.
