Lahaina

— 7 nights

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.
Visit Napili Beach and Makena Beach for some beach relaxation. Step out of the city life by going to Haleakala Crater and Scuba & Snorkeling. Venture out of the city with trips to The Awakening Church (in Kihei) and Wailea (Wailea Beach, Keawakapu Beach, &more). There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Lahaina Front Street, kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, examine the collection at Whalers Village Museum, and walk around D.T. Fleming Park.

The Valley Isle
The second largest of the eight major Hawaiian Islands, Maui features a rugged landscape ranging from high mountain peaks to deep valleys. Half of Maui lies within 8 km (5 mi) of the coastline, and most tourists come for the sandy beaches, many of them backed by fashionable resorts offering every modern convenience. Diversity of tourist attractions is Maui's major allure, with each of the island's shores offering a different set of vacation ideas. You can swim with dolphins, snorkel with sea turtles, or hike over the otherworldly landscapes of the world's biggest dormant volcano. A foodie paradise, the island also features dozens of small farms and gourmet restaurants.
