Historic Lahaina town

Lahaina: Maui's miles of sunny south and west-facing shoreline were perfect for developing a new visitor industry. These shores are sheltered from the prevailing northeast Tradewinds; the warm sun is predictable, the waters calm, the rains infrequent, the sunsets sublime; and the outlying Islands - Moloka'i, Lana'i, and Kaho'olawe - give scenic depth to the horizon. While Kapalua Resort is rife with golf courses, tennis clubs, luxury hotels, bed & Breakfasts and Condominiums, Front Street in historic Lahaina Town still retains much of the charm of the old whaling days.

HANAKA'O'O Beach Park - Located between Wahikuli State Wayside Park and the Hyatt Regency Maui. The Beach fronting the park is the beginning of the long stretch of sand that runs for a mile to PU'U KEKA'A or Black Rock in the center of Ka'anapali. Facilities in the park include picnic pavillions, restrooms, showers, paved parking, and canoe storage sheds for the OUTRIGGER CANOE CLUBS who use the park as a practice site.

Baby Beach - Providing nice views of Kaho'olawe, Lanai, Molokai, and the West Maui Mountains, Baby Beach is a fine spot to spend a few hours.

Wahikuli Wayside Park - This narrow area of sandy shoreline sits between Lahaina and Kaanapali. Though often crowded, it is quite beautiful.
