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.
Get in touch with nature at Napili Beach and Ho'okipa Beach Park. Costantino Studio and Lahaina Galleries are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Lahaina side-trips: Wailea (Ulua Beach & Makena Beach), Zipline (in Wailuku) and Kihei (Kamaole Beach Park II & Kamaole Beach Park III). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kapalua Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Kahekili Beach Park, view the masterpieces at Village Galleries in Lahaina, and take a tour by water with Boat Tours & Water Sports.

Quickly create a custom-made itinerary for Lahaina using our trip planner.

Sydney, Australia to Lahaina is an approximately 16.5-hour flight. You'll gain 20 hours traveling from Sydney to Lahaina due to the time zone difference. Prepare for a bit warmer weather when traveling from Sydney in May: high temperatures in Lahaina hover around °C and lows are around °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel to Volcano.

Those who named Volcano opted for simplicity in choosing a title, taking the nearby fire-spewing Kilauea as a source of inspiration.

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.
Visiting Waikiki Beach and Koko Crater Railway Trail will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lanikai Beach and Nu’uanu Pali. Step out of Honolulu to go to Kaneohe and see Byodo-In Temple, which is approximately 32 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the different monuments and memorials at USS Arizona Memorial, appreciate the history behind Queen Liliuokalani Statue, and browse the exhibits of Iolani Palace.

To find maps, reviews, photos, and tourist information, go to the Honolulu trip site.

Traveling by flight from Volcano to Honolulu takes 4.5 hours. In May, daily temperatures in Honolulu can reach °C, while at night they dip to °C. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 17th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
