Crown Jewel of Maui

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: Ho'okipa Beach Park (in Paia), Wailea Beach (in Wailea) and Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park). There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Maui Ocean Center, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kapalua Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at D.T. Fleming Park, and cruise along Hana Highway - Road to Hana.

Start your trip to Lahaina by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

New York City to Lahaina is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You'll gain 5 hours traveling from New York City to Lahaina due to the time zone difference. In July, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 73°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) so you can travel to Kailua-Kona.

Heart of the Kona Coast

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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Hawaii Lifeguard Surf Instructors, Skyline Hawaii - Big Island Zipline Tours, Parker Ranch, and other attractions you added. Venture out of the city with trips to Hilo (Rainbow Falls, Liliuokalani Gardens, &more), Puukohola National Historic Park (in Kawaihae) and Waipiʻo Valley Lookout (in Honokaa). There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Wildlife Areas, stroll through Laupahoehoe Beach Park, and kick back and relax at Mauna Kea Beach.

For reviews, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, you can read our Kailua-Kona trip planning website.

Getting from Lahaina to Kailua-Kona by flight takes about 4.5 hours. In July in Kailua-Kona, expect temperatures between 86°F during the day and 76°F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) so you can travel to Lihue.
