Kahului Vacations

With the largest airport on Maui (and the second largest in Hawaii, after Honolulu), Kahului is both the island's business center as well as a traveler's hub.

are actually the spring and fall, when winter rains won’t spoil your tanning time and the summer’s 90F (32C) days won’t leave you searching for air conditioning.

Kahului is the city where you will likely fly in and out of the airport.

This is not the destination in Maui, but it is a great resource if you need it.

Kahului is "town" to locals. Office max, old navy, sports authority and other non-tourist shops and restaurants.
