Map of Maui Districts

Welcome to the Maui Travel Guide.

Discover the various districts on Maui and “what is where” with the Maui travel guide to Maui vacations.

Lahaina Town is the center for shops and dining most of the ocean activities depart from the Lahaina Boat Harbor which also offers ferry service to the islands of Molokai and Lanai.

South Maui Resorts – North to South

Kihei – Residential condos, good beaches. Great for families on a budget.

Wailea – Luxury resorts and condos, good beaches, no village lifestyle.

Makena – One resort with excellent golf adjacent to the public beach.

South Maui Condos are in Kihei and Wailea. The star rating indicates the amenities offered at the property and in the region.

The district includes Sugar Beach south to Makena. There are two distinctly different towns, Kihei and Wailea.

Kihei (key-hay) district is residential with condos that are a good value for families that need larger units with full kitchens. Some condo properties are across the road from the beach.

The beaches are beautiful, some have lifeguards and bathrooms with showers.

South Maui beaches are good for children who want to enjoy good snorkeling, boogie boarding and surfing.

Wailea is south of Kihei. Wailea luxury resorts are on cove beaches. Makena Beach is at the south end of Wailea. The region is less crowded than Kaanapali Beach and Lahaina with fewer shops and restaurants as well. Wailea is relaxed and calm with wilderness surrounding the town on the mountainside.

A unique opportunity to leave the crowds behind and step into the history of Hawaii.

Each island is unique in landscape, accommodations, natural wonders, and spectacular scenery.

Transportation to the island is by small plane from any island or by ferry from Maui.

My advice is to go early by ferry if you are on Maui.

The channel can be choppy in the late afternoon. Kind of a rough ride if the winds pick up.
