Things To Do In Kihei
Stop by the popular Kalama Beach Park, home of “the Cove” surf spot to try your hand at surfing, beach volleyball, or even some skating at the roller-skating rink. Across the street has many local shops to check out, as well as some places to find the best shave ice.
Kihei is also home to the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary. Humpback Whales travel to the island in the winter and can be found in early spring. Many of the wonderful creatures can be seen playing from Kihei’s shores, as well as from one of the many whale watching cruises available.
Nature lovers can head towards Maalaea to find Kealia Pond, home of many endangered species including the ae’o (Hawaiian stilt), ‘alae ke’oke’o (Hawaiian coot) and Hawaiian hawksbill turtles. During the day, many of the creatures can be spotted from the Kealia Coastal Boardwalk that runs beside Maalaea Bay.
