Make a self catering apartment or holiday rental in Honokowai, Maui, Hawaii your home away from home

The small resort town of Honokowai, also known as Napili-Honolowai, has around 7,000 inhabitants in a beautiful location on the far west side of Maui. It is a less well-known destination where visitors can still witness the traditional way of life on Maui.

Things to Do in Honokowai, Maui

Honokowai holiday rentals are just north of the town of Lahaina, with a narrow beach and good snorkeling between the two reefs. Sunbathing and other watersports can be enjoyed in the area along with ball games and local sports played on the grassy park beside the beach. Kaanapali is just along the coast and is slowly developing, with several luxury resort hotels spread along the edge of the mile-long beach. Go shopping in the Whalers Village shopping centre in Kaanapali to pick up cheap souvenirs and local handicrafts. Golf can be played nearby on the Royal Kaanapali Golf Course just 2 miles south of Honokowai or at the Kapalua Golf Club. It is a couple of miles north and hosts the PGA Tour Mercedes-Benz Championship each January.

The Baldwin Home Museum has some local history and the Lahaina Cannery Mall is a pleasant air-conditioned mall to escape the heat.
