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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ho'okipa Beach Park and Wailea Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Old Lahaina Courthouse and Lahaina United Methodist Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Scuba & Snorkeling (in Wailuku), Wailea (Makena Beach, Wailea Beach Path, &more) and Kihei (Kalepolepo Beach Park, Kamaole Beach Park II, &more). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Kapalua Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Baby Beach, let the river carry you with a rafting and tubing tour, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Calvary Chapel Westside.

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.
Visit Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area and Manini'owali Beach (Kua Bay) for some beach relaxation. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park and Lekeleke Burial Ground. When in Kailua-Kona, make a side trip to see Kealakekua Bay in Captain Cook, approximately Captain Cook away. And it doesn't end there: fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, identify plant and animal life at Kanaloa Octopus Farm, get interesting insight from Tours, and stop by The Original Donkey Ball Store.

To see more things to do, photos, maps, and other tourist information, read our Kailua-Kona route planning website.

Getting from Lahaina to Kailua-Kona by flight takes about 4.5 hours. In April, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 10th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel to Hanalei.

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: Kayaking & Canoeing (in Kailua), Byodo-In Temple (in Kaneohe) and Haleiwa (Waimea Valley, Sunset Beach Park, &more). Next up on the itinerary: explore the galleries of USS Arizona Memorial, tour the pleasant surroundings at Koko Crater Railway Trail, explore the gorgeous colors at Pele's Chair, and contemplate the waterfront views at Hanauma Bay Nature Preserve.
