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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Ho'okipa Beach Park and Kapalua Beach. Get some historical perspective at Maria Lanakila Catholic Church and Mantokuji Temple Mission of Paia. Explore Kihei's surroundings by going to D.T. Fleming Park (in Kapalua) and Zipline (in Haiku). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Kamaole Beach Park III, identify plant and animal life at Honolua Bay, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and kick back and relax at Ulua Beach.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
We've included these beaches for you: Lanikai Beach and Bellows Field Beach Park. Visiting Koko Crater Railway Trail and Sunset Beach Park will get you outdoors. Take a break from Honolulu with a short trip to Scuba & Snorkeling in Haleiwa, about 50 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: explore the different monuments and memorials at National Memorial Cemetery of the Pacific, take an in-depth tour of Queen Emma Summer Palace, hit the best photo ops around with an inspiring photography tour, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Makapuu Lighthouse Trail.
