Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

North Kihei is quieter than it's busy neighbor, South Kihei, and is more populated with Maui locals rather than tourists. It takes about five minutes to walk to the beach and the bus stop, which services Kihei, Wailea, Kahului, Wailuku, Ma'alaea, Lahaina, Ka'anapali & Kapalua. A short walk, about 30 minutes, either on the beach or along the main road, or a brief drive, about 5 minutes, and you'll find a variety of shopping, dining, service stations and video rentals.

West Maui has some of the most beautiful beaches that Hawaii has to offer, as well as some of the most stunning resorts, golf courses, and restaurants/bars, all within less than 30 minutes. Surfing, diving, swimming, kayaking and fun in the sun are all within the same South West coastal stretch. Enjoy Little Makena beach, which is clothing optional, an get an all over tan.

There are boat harbors at both Ma'alaea & Lahaina that offer a variety of dive, snorkle, whale & dolphin watching excursions, and sunset cocktail & dining cruises. Visit Molokai & Lanai by taking a ferry from Lahaina.

The waters off of West Maui are a marine sanctuary, and the winter home for breeding and birthing Humpback Whales. The Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whales National Marine Sanctuary building is about a 10 minute walk away & the Pacific Whale Foundation, as well as, the aquarium at the Maui Ocean Center are located in Ma'alaea, about a 15 minute drive North. And that's just the South West Side of Maui!
