The sunny northwest coast of Maui offers plenty of options for shopping, restaurants and activities, as well as some of the best spots to watch the sunset. The islands of Lanai and Molokai are just across the channel, offering picture-perfect views up and down West Maui’s shoreline.
A 45 minute drive from Kahului Airport (OGG) will take you to the historic whaling village of Lahaina. Get a feel for old Lahaina by visiting Maui’s oldest banyan tree, the long-standing Pioneer Inn and other sites along the city’s historic trail. Then take a stroll down lively Front Street filled with dozens of art galleries, unique shops and eateries.
Further north is Kapalua, Maui’s premier resort area located at the foot of the verdant West Maui Mountains. Lined with five bays and three white-sand beaches, Kapalua features two renowned golf courses and award-winning restaurants.
