Lahaina’s history as a busy 19th century whaler’s town makes it fascinating and a worthy place to visit. Today in Maui the streets are very busy, filled with tourists. The old wooden shops that were originally home to saloons and provision stores are today crammed with galleries and quaint boutiques. Take a gander around the beautiful 19th Century Courthouse, which is today a gallery displaying works by Lahaina artists, Wo Hing Temple, the Baldwin House, and Hale Paahao Prison museum.
Kaanapali, just north of Lahaina, is more like Southern California, with its high-rises, far more developed than most parts of the island.
The snorkeling is brilliant at Black Rock. The southwestern coast is characterised by fast growing developments. Its entire length is fringed with sandy beaches. Surfers flock to Maalaea Bay, Maipoina Oe Iau Beach Park and Kamaole Beach Park offering perfect surfable waves. Keawakapu Beach is more scenic and less crowded if you prefer this. Kihei has become another popular, rapidly developing town, also lively by night like Lahaina and Kaanapali.
Maui is an ideal mix of modern, convenient tourist facilities, good value accommodation and dining, with plenty of sunshine, perfect beaches (and people watching), entertainment and natural beauty.
