Lahaina, HI summarized
West Maui has a strip of densely populated beaches, with Lahaina as the only real town along the sunny and green shoreline. The census-designated place is one of the prettiest communities in all Hawaii, with its Front Street as one of the Top Ten Greatest Streets in all of America. It once served as the capital of the Kingdom of Hawaii, but Lahaina has barely outgrew the peace and quiet of its tropical village, which can be a good thing. Lahaina's main oceanfront street is surrounded with timber-decorated buildings; surfers spin into the beach's thin fringe; the signature palms sway to both sides of Lahaina's mighty and towering banyan tree; and West Maui's mountains govern the skyline. The view out to sea from Lahaina's coastline is superb. If you have the time, consider taking a ferry toward the island of Lanai; Hulopoe Bay's main beach is a delight. Expeditions to the bay will give you glimpses on Lahaina's reputation as the former center of the whaling industry.

Score 5.0 / 5
Lahaina is a tourist stop. Lots of shops and good restaurants along the Main Street. The Lahaina port is the jumping off point for whale watching, snorkeling and fishing. Free parking is limited and subject to a three hour period. Tuesday is the day the island cruise ship stops at Lahaina. It is well worth visiting at least once during your stay on Maui.
