Once a getaway destination for Hawaii’s royalty, Kihei is famous for its six miles of beaches on Maui’s southwest shore — the island’s sunniest and driest area. Between September and March, humpback whales are frequently spotted from this shoreline area. Learn more about the area’s marine environment and ongoing conservation efforts at the recently renovated Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary’s visitor center in Kihei. Also, from the center’s beachfront site are clear-day views of Kahoolawe, Lanai and West Maui.
