Lahaina — 4 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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Lahaina: Helicopter Tours (in Kahului) and Iao Valley (in Wailuku). There's much more to do: see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, stroll through Napili Beach, get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Maui Ocean Center, and kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks.

To find ratings, photos, and other tourist information, use the Lahaina day trip website.

The Route module can help you plan travel from Haleakala National Park to Lahaina. Expect a daytime high around 78°F in December, and nighttime lows around 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Thu) to allow enough time to fly back home.

Maui travel guide

4.5
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.
