Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kapalua Beach and Ho'okipa Beach Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Kihei: Kula (Ali'i Kula Lavender Farm & Maui Wine, Ulupalakua Vineyards) and Lahaina Banyan Court (in Lahaina). There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Kamaole Beach Park II, brush up on your knowledge of spirits at Ocean Vodka Organic Farm and Distillery, take an unforgettable tour with a helicopter tour, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Kamaole Beach Park III.

To find photos, where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, read our Kihei day trip planner .
