Trip Planner USA  /  Hawaii  /  Maui  /  Lahaina

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. Affectionately called Lele, "relentless sun" in Hawaiian, the town features oceanside avenues dotted with restored 19th-century buildings, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, and local hangouts, reminiscent of its past as a whaling village and reflective of its rich Polynesian heritage. The population of Lahaina triples during high tourism season: the town is a well-known getaway location, home to the famous Ka'anapali Beach and some of the island's best whale-watching. Explore the family-friendly attractions of Lahaina and add them to your vacation plans using our United States online trip itinerary maker .

Where to stay in Lahaina

Despite its popularity with tourists, Lahaina offers relatively few accommodations, which boil down to rental properties and several hostel-like establishments with rooms available on a nightly, weekly, or monthly basis. If you don't have to stay in Lahaina itself, consider lodgings in Kaanapali, less than 15 minutes away by car. Other good options are the resort hotels just to the north of Lahaina, and oceanside campgrounds to the south.
