Kihei is a white sand beach on the west shores of Maui. The Hawaiian island is a very popular destination to visit for couples, families, and solo travelers alike. The beautifully-colored ocean, the amazing nature, and the diversity of marine life makes Kihei a unique paradise. West Maui is a little more relaxed than the other more touristic parts of Haiwaii.
There are plenty of things to do and sights to see at Kihei, including mountains to hike, green jungles to explore, and white sand beaches to unwind on.
Visitors often think that Kihei is only for relaxing and swimming but there is a much broader range of things to do here. Enjoy some quality time at Kihei Surfside Resort, where beginners can learn the basics of surfing in the warm, shallow waters of the ocean. For the best beach -- also suitable for children and families, as well as large groups -- head to Keawakapu Beach, towards of south Maui. This beach has shallow waters and a long shore, perfect for paddling and games in the sun.
Maui is also known for being a home to rescue whales, there are various centers around the area that promote marine life conservation, such as the Maui Ocean Center, the Ocean Science Discovery Center, and the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale Sanctuary Visitor Center.
If you're eager to experience marine life first-hand, there are many boat tours available to explore the waters and even see sights like hatching turtles. There's also a fantastic water sports scene here, with surfing, kayaking, sailing and jetskiing available for visitors. Snorkeling is a must-do, particularly at the Turtle Reef, off the coastline in the West.
Prefer to venture out on land?

Alternatively, practice your swing at one of the many golf courses in Kihei, most of them boasting scenic backdrops.
