Once the booming capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom, the tropical paradise of Lahaina still remains one of Maui's top vacation attractions, providing both culture and recreation.
Shop till you drop at Glass Mango and Pakaloha Bikinis. We've included these beaches for you: Ka'anapali Beach and Napili Beach. When in Lahaina, make a side trip to see Wailea Beach in Wailea, approximately 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Lahaina Banyan Court, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kapalua Beach, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Maui Ocean Center, and appreciate the history behind Jodo Mission Lahaina.

To see photos, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, read Lahaina itinerary planner.

Vancouver, Canada to Lahaina is an approximately 10.5-hour flight. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Vancouver to Lahaina due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Vancouver in October, expect Lahaina to be much hotter, temps between 34°C and 26°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Fri) to allow time to travel to Poipu.

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.
Relax by the water at Kailua Beach Park and Lanikai Beach. Bring the kids along to Iolani Palace and Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Honolulu: Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku), Dole Plantation (in Wahiawa) and Haleiwa (Sunset Beach Park & Waimea Bay). There's lots more to do: buy something for everyone on your list at Ala Moana Center, see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Kapiolani Regional Park, and take in the pleasant sights at Diamond Head State Monument.

To find where to stay, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Honolulu trip itinerary maker.

You can fly from Poipu to Honolulu in 3 hours. In October, daytime highs in Honolulu are 35°C, while nighttime lows are 27°C. On the 31st (Tue), you'll have the morning to explore before heading back home.
