Kihei is beach-combing territory on Maui’s southwest shore, the sunniest, driest end of the island. Once a regular destination for sojourning Hawaiian royalty, Kihei features six miles of beaches
, which offer clear views of Kahoolawe, Molokini
and West Maui
. Along with swimming and surfing you can also find great snorkeling
and kayaking, and you may even spot a giant humpback whale spouting or breaching the ocean’s surface.
