13. Lahaina

A historic town in the western part of Maui, Lahaina is a port city that has been transformed into one of the hottest towns on the Island. Lined with art galleries, restaurants and nightclubs this is the place to be after the sun sets. Visit Old Lahaina Luau where you will find the most authentic Hawaiian luau to enjoy a Hawaiian feast, fire dancing, hula and a wide assortment of tropical drinks. If you’re looking for Hawaiian souvenirs to bring home there is no shortage of shops selling whatever your heart desires. Lahaina is also home to the sixty foot Banyan Tree in Courthouse Square where in the early mornings it’s filled with chirping birds. Take a few minutes to relax and appreciate the enormity of this old giant.


12. Kaanapali Beach (Black Rock)

Located just a stone’s throw away from the historic town of Lahaina, Kaanapali Beach is known to be one of the best in Maui. This three mile stretch of sand is home to all of the town’s seaside resorts and runs all the way to Black Rock. Black Rock is sliced across the beach and home to those wishing to snorkel and scuba. This is one of the best places to see sea turtles and rays while out for a leisurely snorkel (no guided tour necessary). If you are lucky enough, dolphins often appear near Black Rock and will frolic in the water with you. Locals and daring tourists will love jumping off one of many platforms on top of Black Rock. A suggestion to all visitors is to arrive early as this stretch of beach gets very crowded. If you have forgotten your snorkel gear, head to the Costco in town where you will pay a much lower price than at the resorts.
