Lahaina is a location that is experienced by two million people, or approximately 80% percent of all of Maui tourism, per year. Lahaina has over a thousand years of rich history, and was the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii from 1820 to 1845. From beaches to restaurants, Lahaina has some of the best attractions Maui has to offer.
Lahaina's Front Street has been ranked one of the "Top Ten Greatest Streets" by the American Planning Association. Enjoy a relaxing stroll, and if rest is needed, take a break under the massive Banyan tree located in the town square.
Lahaina Harbor is an attraction in itself. Vessels of all kinds depart daily for Lanai, snorkeling off the coast, dinner cruises, and whale watching (in season.)
Whale numbers and activity off the west coast of Maui this year have been incredible! We just went on the Maui Princess and think it's one of the best whale watches in the State of Hawaii. Especially during COVID-19, it's nice to be on a huge boat with barely anyone on it. It's been going out with 15-30 people on a regular basis. Take advantage!
From ancient Hawaiian feasts to the dark days of whaling, Lahaina Town has many important landmarks still standing.
Find out why 10's of thousands of dressed party goers flood the streets of Lahaina each year.
