Lahaina is a town on the western coast of the Hawaiian island of Maui. It’s one of the top holiday destinations in the region; Lahaina self-catering vacation rentals are surrounded by numerous restaurants, bars and nightclubs and have easy access to a host of beaches.
Many of the top amenities close to Lahaina self-catering accommodation can be found on the well-known Front Street, famed for its entertainment and considered a masterpiece of planning. A popular activity for anyone visiting Hawaii is a Luau, a traditional feast and music performance. And the Old Lahaina Luau is considered most representative of Maui’s history and culture – here a pig is roasted underground and you’ll also get the chance to learn about hula, and its origins.
Lahaina self-catering vacation accommodation is also close to the only railway on the island. The Sugar Cane Train runs between the town and nearby Kaanapali, and is often used by people as a shuttle for beach trips. In fact, Kaanapali beach is considered one of the prime beaches on West Maui. It boasts three miles of pristine white sand and is lapped by clear, calm waters. In the past it was an exclusive retreat for Maui’s royalty, and today also boasts Whalers Village, a top shopping destination. It’s an open-air mall, with a host of entertainment, dining and upmarket shopping.
At a vacation rental in Lahaina you’ll be in a superb setting to experience the natural wonders around Maui. Today whale-watching is a particularly popular option for an excursion. There are a number of companies offering cruises – and anyway, if you head out onto the waters during the whale season there’s a good chance you’ll spot these magnificent creatures whether you intended to or not.
Kapalua is little more than 20 minutes along the coast from Lahaina vacation accommodation. This is known as one of the island’s most prestigious locations, replete with wonderful beaches and first-class amenities, like two championship standard golf courses. Standout beaches include Honolua Bay, for its surfing waves, and DT Fleming Beach, often considered the best in the United States.
On holiday at a vacation rental in Lahaina you can expect two main seasons; wet and dry. The former runs from October to March, bringing more precipitation and slightly cooler temperatures. The dry season has less rainfall, with daytime highs reaching the low 30s.
