Maui towns to go checkout with a little description to go along with them. This is not a full list of Maui Towns but just a quick overview of some of the more tourist towns as well as towns with accommodations you might stay at.
Step off the plane to civilization. It feels like this is where everything you may need is located. So get ready to drive back and forth to kahului to get anything you may have left on the mainland. They've got a mall and a Costco and a Whole Foods and a Target plus plenty of gas stations.
Nice small city on the way to the Iao Valley. Did i mention it's small city feel with historical buildings. A real Mop & Pop retro vibe.
I don't have much to say as I never visited there. Wetland refuge and Dunes are what it's know for.
Santa Cruz's and Carmel's spawn. Trying to stay to it's roots but yet money and art have crept in. Still has a surf town soul but with higher prices and art galleries. It's a great time though.
Just plain old maui funky. This is kind of a throwback to Maui of old. Think plantation houses with overgrown greenscapes. This town has some good restaurants but is very laid back. A spot for local surfers to live.
Home of the upcountry and the cowboy. A bit up in altitude but not far from a distillery and a starbucks
Center of nowhere feel to it. Near gardens, lavender farms, and the base camp to get to Haleakala National Park before all the parking spots are taken to see the sun rise.
The road to Hana and beyond
Wow. If you've ever seen the bumper sticker proclaiming "I survived the road to Hana" believe them. Not for the people who get car sick or disorientated. Hana is a fine town with several fine beaches and waterfalls and pools but one really has to want to go there.It takes around 3 Hours each way. A few more towns dot the road and eventually the two lane road disappears to a one lane dirt lane and your car insurance also disappears. Good luck!
Home to a boat harbor and the sea life at the Maui Ocean Center
The sleepy Waikiki of the 70's. A very nice family friendly place with lots of accommodations and condos. The multiple small beaches are just a step a across the roadway. Perhaps the driest and sunniest spot on the Island.
The Orange County of Maui. Seriously... Very high end shopping, manicured grounds, with a southern california building developer feel. Think country club and you wont be far off. A mix of 5 beaches making up an over mile and a half long area.
Next door to Wailea but feels a world away. Fewer people, fewer resorts, and of course home to "Big Beach".
Home of Leoda's kitchen and pie shop which you absolutely have to pull over and stop at. Some nice mellow long shelf beaches nearby.
A tourist trap feeling old town. Mixing history and commerce with a nice walking square and promenade. Fine dining galore and even some rockstars can be seen. A certain night life hot spot for this harbor town.
The famed beach plus the cliff divers and the resorts have been here for ages. If you golf you are in good company in this area of Maui. Also home to the Whalers Village for some history with your commerce. Ka'anapali beach is voted consistently one of the best beaches in the world.
Continue here with your golfing buddies but you cant go too much further before the road gets all kinds of crazy
