Information on Kihei

, on the southwest coast of Maui, is an idyllic seaside town with beautiful beaches. It is the neighboring town to Wailea-Makena and a short drive down the coast from Lahaina Town and Maalaea Harbor.

Kihei was once where Hawaiians lived in scattered villages, fished the sea and maintained fishponds for royalty. Kihei was once where Kamehameha I moored his war canoes during his conquest of Maui and accepted the first cattle brought to Hawaii from British explorer George Vancouver. Here today, visitors make Kihei their base to explore the beauty of Maui, the Valley Isle.
