As the home of Maui’s main airport and only deep-draft harbor, Kahului is a hub for travel and commerce. The town is situated on the north shore off this famed island of Hawaii, offering exceptional shopping, several interesting attractions and a number of recreational activities.
Kanaha Beach County Park is a prime spot for sports, and with scenic views of the West Maui Mountains and cool breezes, the park is also a sanctuary for relaxation. Visitors interested in learning about the history of Maui’s sugar industry have the chance to see artifacts, photos and exhibits at the 1,800-square-foot Alexander & Baldwin Sugar Museum, located in the nearby town of Pu-unene. Arts and community culture come alive at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center, a massive facility that houses live performances, an art gallery, festivals and theatrical productions, along with a number of cultural programs exploring local tradition.
