Get around[edit]

The main commercial street in Kahului is Kaahumanu Avenue (state route 32), which passes by the main shopping malls of Queen Kaahumanu Center and Maui Mall. Hana Highway (state route 36) intersects Kaahumanu Avenue near Maui Mall. Dairy Road (state route 380) is the road which runs to Kahului Airport from the major tourist centers and along which Maui's major big-box retailers lie.


  • Maui Arts and Cultural Center, 1 Cameron Way, +1 808 242-7469. Tu-Su 11AM-5PM. Completed in 1994, the Arts and Cultural Center is one of the island's best venues for both visual and performing arts. The Schaefer International Gallery is Maui's only museum-quality art gallery, while several performance venues including the Castle Theater and Alexander and Baldwin Amphitheater provide space for concerts and plays. Free admission for most exhibits in the Schaefer Gallery.
  • Maui Nui Botanical Gardens, 150 Kanaloa Ave, +1 808 249-2798. M-Sa 8AM-4PM. Seven acre site focused on flora of Maui, Moloka'i, Lana'i and Kaho'olawe.


Helicopter and small plane tours of Maui and the other Hawaiian Islands are available at the airport.



  • 1 Tasaka Guri-Guri, 70 E. Kaahumanu Ave #C13 (in Maui Mall), +1 808-871-4513. Mon-Thu 9 am - 6 pm, Fri 9 am - 7 pm, Sat 9 am - 5 pm, Sun 10 am - 4 pm. A long-time fixture on Maui, this shop keeps things simple and serves up a classic old-style Hawaii flavor: it sells a classic sherbet in only two flavors, strawberry and pineapple. The Tasaka family has been doing this for over 90 years, and for many visitors to Maui, no trip is complete without a visit here. They will also pack it for the plane ride. Cash only.



There are only three hotels in Kahului, all of them on the budget to midrange end of the scale. All are centrally located in Kahului not far from the airport and provide clean and comfortable accommodations, but if you're expecting amenities on the scale of properties in Kaanapali or Kihei, you will be sorely disappointed.

  • Maui Beach Hotel, 170 Kaahumanu Ave. Average price about $119 (as of 3/07).
  • Maui Seaside Hotel, 100 Kaahumanu Ave. Clean, basic hotel on white sand beach. Average price about $115 (as of 7/10).
  • Courtyard Maui Airport Hotel, 532 Keolani Place (5 minutes from OGG). Part of the Marriott chain, just minutes from the airport. Average price about $249 (as of 5/2016).
