Discover Kihei

One of the most consistently sunny and dry spots on Maui is Kihei located in the southwestern portion of the island. There are six miles of beaches in this community that is only about 25 minutes from Kahului Airport, allowing visitors to see views of Kahoolawe, Molokini, Lanai, and West Maui.

Swimming, surfing, snorkeling, and kayaking are popular activities for those staying in Kihei vacation rentals, and you might even see a giant humpback whale coming to the ocean’s surface in the wintertime.  Popular beaches in and around our Kihei vacation rentals include Kalepolepo Beach Park, Sugar Beach, and three Kamaole beach parks, the longest of which is Kamaole I. Considered one of the best beaches in Kihei, Charley Young Beach is located at the secluded northern end of Kam I Beach and features shallow waters, gentle waves and fine, soft sand ideal for children.  You’ll also find plenty of great local restaurants, a farmers market, and shops to find that perfect souvenir to take home!
