Kihei Travel Guide
Welcome to Kihei!
Kihei is located on the western edge of Maui in Hawaii. Now known for its plentiful accommodations and services, Kihei in the 1960s consisted of roughly two hundred yards where the Mokulele Highway met the Ma'alaea Bay. Development has grown exponentially over the years and the city now stretches nearly 5 mi (8 km) along South Kihei Road. Aside from hotels and restaurants, Kihei also boasts a number of beaches, ocean swimming, scuba diving and other marine activities. Visitors can learn more about the marine life in the Hawaiian islands at the Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary, which offers education and information about the humpback and other aquatic wildlife. Shopping opportunities abound in Kihei as well. Azeka Place 1 & 2 are two of the largest shopping malls and host a variety of stores and fast food restaurants.
This facility provides education and promotes research about local humpback whale populations, which visit the area in the winter.
