Maui’s Quieter Side

A sacred place for native Hawaiians, Kapalua offers the breathtaking landscapes that Hawaii is known for. This is a quieter side of Maui, making it an ideal destination both for families or a relaxing romantic getaway. Experience the thrill of ziplining over lush valleys, hit the links on world-class courses, and hike through dense forests that used to be home to a pineapple plantation. Or simply spend your days luxuriating on the incredible Kapalua Beach—a golden crescent beach with calm waters and a sandy bottom that gently slopes to deeper water. Head to the island’s nearby rugged northern coast where you’re sure to find adventure.

Destination Highlights

  • Mahana Ridge Trail

    Spend a morning walking the beautiful Mahana Ridge Trail through an area that was once home to pineapple and coffee farms. The trail is six miles round trip, but worth it for amazing views of Mokupe'a and Honokahua Gulches.

  • Sail Across the Channel

    Head across the channel to the island of Lana'i for a different glimpse into Hawaiian life. This historic plantation town offers shopping, local artisans, and casual dining. Bring your snorkeling gear to explore the coves.

  • Ka'anapali Beach and Whaler's Village

    Pry yourself away from the quiet Kapalua Beach and drive 10 minutes to Ka'anapali for a beautiful beach, charming restaurants, and shops. Stay for the daily sunset cliff diving ceremony at Puu Kekaa, the northernmost cliffs.



  • Forecasting Your Maui Vacation

    Year-round high temperatures linger in the 80s, while average lows rarely dip below 65 degrees. Gentle trade winds can bring in more light rain showers than southern points of Maui, but they usually clear quickly and sunny days outnumber rainy ones.
