5 maui towns you can’t miss
You can’t explore West Maui without stopping in the town of Lahaina. Perched right on the water is this old whaling village that was once the capitol of Hawaii. Lahaina town is filled with history as you walk around town you’ll find remains of the old fort, the courthouse, and the old Lahaina jail. As you cruise Front Street, the main drag you’ll find plenty of shops, restaurants, bars and art galleries to keep you busy. This is my favorite ‘Maui Towns’ and where I’ve called home for the past 10 years. Be sure NOT to miss Lahaina town while you’re exploring Maui.
Twenty minutes past Hana town you’ll reach the Kipahulu entrance to Haleakala National Park. Inside the park you can explore the seven sacred pools or embark on one of my favorite hikes on Maui, the Pipiwai Trail. This trail takes you through a long bamboo forest, past ancient banyan trees and finally ends at the glorious Waimoku Falls.
Spend your afternoons lazing at a picture perfect Hawaiian beach or cliff jumping at the Venus Pools. However you choose to spend your days, Hana is a MUST VISIT of Maui towns.
