As the home of Maui's main airport and only deep-draft harbor, Kahului is a hub for travel and commerce. The town is situated on the north shore off this famed island of Hawaii, offering exceptional shopping, several interesting attractions and a number of recreational activities.

Kanaha Beach County Park is a prime spot for sports, and with scenic views of the West Maui Mountains and cool breezes, the park is also a sanctuary for relaxation.
