24-Hour Guide to Lahaina, Maui
Nestled between the West Maui Mountains and the coast is the charming, bustling town of Lahaina. But despite its tiny size, there’s plenty to do and eat. Looking to catch a glimpse of some humpback whales? Then head to Auau Channel for stellar views. Catch a wave with Maui Surf Clinics, or perfect your swing at the renown Kaanapali Golf Courses. Then cool off from the sun under the world’s largest Banyan Tree, perched in front of Lahaina Courthouse and Lahaina Harbor. The famed Front Street is lined with restaurants, including the world-famous Ululani’s Hawaiian Shave Ice (our favorite is the Strawberry, Pineapple, and Vanilla, also known as the Hawaiian Rainbow, which only uses natural syrups and toppings for their refreshing, colorful treats.
To learn all about Hawaii’s most famous fruit, take a tour of Puneka Palms Coconut Farm, located ten minutes from Lahaina. (Don’t forget to check out the roadside fruit stands along the way.) And when the sun sets, enjoy cooking your own dinner back at Kaanapali Alii with the complimentary grill master, who will share expert tips and sauces – to ensure a fabulous sunset bbq dinner you’ll never forget!
