Kihei is known for boasting warmer winter weather than other parts of Maui. In turn, its desirable climate and pleasant temperatures draw in travelers looking to take advantage of the area's six miles of calm beaches that offer crystal-clear views of the Kahoʻolawe, Molokini, Lānaʻi, and West Maui.
The area is also famous for its tranquil beaches that allow visitors to take advantage of a beautiful piece of Hawaiian coastline that's more relaxing. So if you're looking for a destination to relax, swim, kayak, or snorkel in the ocean, here's where to go next.
Kihei has plenty of markets, cafes, and beaches accessible on foot, making it an accessible and fun place to stay for non-drivers. Maui public buses also service the area and grant guests access to other parts of the island.
Nevertheless, renting a car offers travelers more freedom to visit places like Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge, explore the island more accessible, or witness an unforgettable sunrise at Haleakala's peak.
Both sides of the island have their advantages and distinctions. For example, Sugar Beach—Maui's longest beach—is in North Kihei and offers a softer coastal experience. In contrast, South Kihei's Cove Beach delivers wilder waves, making it more adventurous for surfers.
If you had to choose one or another, think of North Kihei as the quieter, calmer destination to South Kihei's busier and more lively coastline.
Whether you want to relax on the beach, learn to surf, or just reconnect with family and friends, a stay in our Hawaii vacation rentals here in Kihei will be the perfect home away from home.
Choose between a wide variety of Hawaiin condo rentals, studio apartments, or cottages to make the most of your stay in Maui.
