Kihei, Maui

Located on the South side of Maui, Kihei consists of about a 6 mile stretch. This includes condo accommodations, shopping malls, restaurants, and beach parks. Kihei’s plentiful beaches are the best in the morning, as the wind tends to pick up in the afternoon. For those looking for swimming and snorkeling, earlier in the day is best.

Some of the many activities Kihei has to offer include parasailing, volcano tours, water sports and eco adventures. Kihei is also host to the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, a research facility.
