Getting to know the island

West Maui – also on the desert side. Lahain town is central with restaurants and shopping areas on the water. Kapalua and Kaanapali are golf course towns situated on the water with huge resorts. Napili is quieter with pretty beaches. Kahana is located between Kapalua and Kaanapali and has beautiful beaches with reasonable pricing.

East Maui - When you’re envisioning a vacation at Hawaii, Hana is generally the preferred choice with coastlines of lava rock, empty beaches, waterfalls, and lush rainforests.
