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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lahaina: Wailuku (Maui Tropical Plantation & Iao Valley State Monument - TEMPORARILY CLOSED), Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park), Scuba & Snorkeling (in Kihei) and Wailea Beach (in Wailea). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Ka'anapali Beach, make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court, and meet the residents at Maui Ocean Center.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Lahaina holiday planner.

Kailua-Kona, Island of Hawaii

Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Venture out of the city with trips to Hilo Coffee Mill (in Mountain View), Kilauea Iki Trail (in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park), Hilo (Rainbow Falls & Akaka Falls State Park) and Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area (in Kohala Coast). There's lots more to do: discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Mauna Kea Beach, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, and get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

For maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Kailua-Kona sightseeing planner.

You can do a combination of flight and bus from Lahaina to Kailua-Kona in 3.5 hours. In July in Kailua-Kona, expect temperatures between 34°C during the day and 28°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (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 out of town with these interesting Honolulu side-trips: Dole Plantation (in Wahiawa), Kailua (Kailua Beach Park & Lanikai Beach), Turtle Bay Beach (in Kahuku), Haleiwa (Waimea Bay & Sunset Beach Park) and Polynesian Cultural Center (in Laie). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of USS Arizona Memorial, see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, enjoy the sand and surf at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve, and admire the sheer force of Manoa Falls.

To see maps, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip itinerary builder.

Do a combination of bus and flight from Kailua-Kona to Honolulu in 3.5 hours. In July, plan for daily highs up to 36°C, and evening lows to 28°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) so you can travel to Poipu.
