Kihei is beach-combing territory on Maui's southwest shore, the sunniest, driest end of the island. In Kihei, anyone can enjoy the sunshine, surf and sand that are the hallmark of the area. Here once Hawaiians lived in scattered villages, fished the sea and maintained fishponds for royalty. Here Kamehameha I moored his war canoes during his conquest of Maui and accepted the first cattle brought to Hawaii.
 
Kihei features six miles of beaches, which offer clear views of Kahoolawe, Molokini, Lanai and West Maui. That which once drew Hawaiians to Kihei remains the areas most desirable attraction - the beaches and the ocean. The Kihei coast consists of one beach after another culminating with the fine if somewhat repetitive names of Kama?ole I, II and III. Kihei's Kalama Beach Park has shady lawns and palm trees dotting its 36-oceanfront acres. These beaches are anything but barren today, as you'll see on almost any weekend. They are also some of the best lifeguarded beaches in Hawaii.
 
Along with swimming and surfing you can also find great snorkeling and kayaking, and you may even spot a giant humpback whale spouting or breaching the ocean's surface. Birdwatchers and nature lovers will find what they're looking for at Kealia Pond on the north end of Kihei. This National Wildlife Conservation District features endangered Hawaiian stilts and coots.
 
Kihei offers a wide variety of oceanfront condos and residential neighborhoods all conveniently close to shops, restaurants, entertainment, and schools.
