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 Ho'okipa Beach Park and Makena Beach. We've included these beaches for you: Kamaole Beach Park II and Kamaole Beach Park III. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Ulua Beach, visit a coastal fixture at McGregor Point Light, take in the exciting artwork at Maui's World Gallery, and admire the majestic nature at Iao Valley.

To find other places to visit, traveler tips, photos, and tourist information, read our Kihei trip itinerary maker site.

New York City to Kihei is an approximately 15.5- hour combination of bus and flight. You can also fly; or do a combination of bus, flight, and car. The time zone difference moving from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Hawaii Standard Time (HST) is minus 5 hours. Prepare for somewhat warmer weather when traveling from New York City in September: high temperatures in Kihei hover around 90°F and lows are around 72°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Mon) so you can travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Get some cultural insight at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific and Queen Emma Summer Palace. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Lanikai Beach and Waimea Valley. Explore Honolulu's surroundings by going to Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park, Skydiving, &more), Sharks Cove (in Pupukea) and Ka'ena Point State Park (in Waianae). Next up on the itinerary: stroll through Koko Crater Railway Trail, take in the dramatic natural features at Halona Blowhole, kick back and relax at Ala Moana Beach Park, and surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.

Expect a daytime high around 88°F in September, and nighttime lows around 76°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
