Kihei Hawaii Facts and Information:

Kihei Beach Resort Activities

  Kihei is a town located on Maui's South Shore. Once known as one of the fastest growing cities in the United States, it's now a jumble of hotels, condos, shops and houses. While lacking charm, Kihei makes amends in its functionality and location. The central location makes it easy to get to other parts of the island and Kihei is known to be one of the hottest places to stay on Maui (temperature-wise), because it doesn't get the breezes that other parts of the island get (perfect for that winter getaway).

Kihei is a sprawly place, strung out along the coast for several miles but never more than a mile wide. The main road north-south along the ocean is South Kihei Road and it contains almost all the hotels, condos, restaurants, shops and beaches. If you are staying in the area and don't mind a bit of walking, you can probably get to most things you need without needing a car. If you do drive, the strip malls have their usual adequate free parking although individual restaurants and beaches may not.

Some Kihei activities offered include:

  • * Go sailing, Kai Kanani Sailing Charters, 34 Wailea Gateway Pl Ste A105.
  • * Go snorkeling. There is some nice coral around Kamaole Beach Park III or take one of the snorkel cruises that depart from the Kihei Boat Ramp. You can rent or buy snorkel gear at local shops like Snorkel Bob's, Boss Frog's and Maui Dive Shop. For info on snorkeling south of Kihei visit the Maui Discount Activities page.
  • * Go swimming at one of the many beaches. The trio of Kamaole Beaches - Kamaole Beach Park I, II and II - are probably the nicest (and busiest) of the Kihei beaches. They each have their own changing rooms although parking is limited if you bring a car.
  • * Go to a luau which feature Polynesian music and dancing. Several resorts host them on various nights of the week. Most feature a buffet dinner.
  • * Visit Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge - is a good place observe Hawaii's endangered wetland birds, along with a diversity of feathered visitors from as far away as Alaska and Canada, and occasionally from Asia. Best season to visit is the winter. Best time of day is in the morning.
  • * Walk along the beach.
  • * Watch the sunrise at the top of Haleakala Crater.
