Have some shaved ice
It was so hot when we finally got to Lahaina. The first thing we did was park the car and get some shaved ice. Its everywhere and it definitely cools you down. We found this little place near Kamehameha school. It was great but messy.
There are so many restaurants...
There are so many restaurants along Main Street - you won´t have any trouble finding one! Enjoy some fresh Mahi Mahi in one of the fish restaurants. Try to get a table up front to have THE VIEW. Best time: sunset!
A reservation may be helpful.....
Historical walking tour:Wo Hing Society Temple
The Chinese were here before the whalers and missionaries. They have so much history here on the Hawaiian Islands.They built meeting halls or temples where their societies could get together. They have held on to their traditions and culture for generations. In 1909 the Chinese living in Lahaina formed the Wo Hing Society, a branch of the Chee Kung Tong, a fraternal society with chapters throughout the world. In 1912, using private donations, the society built a two-story temple on Front Street.
My kids I came in here to check it out. It was part of the Historical walking tour of Lahaina that we did. It was very interesting to see so much history and i think the kids enjoyed it too.
FreeCloud's new Maui Page
Under Construction. Please come back later.
The Lahaina page will cover everything (except the Hana Highway Tour which will be under Hana page) we saw on Maui Island, plus the Blue Water Rafting to snorkel at the Molokini.
Everyone knows where to find snorkeling or scuba diving activities, the following are only the few unique things in Lahanai:
- Visit The Lahaina Jodo Mission , where the largest sitting Buddha outside of Japan is.
- Visit Lahaina Puupiha Cemetery at the oceanfront, pondering if these buried fulfilled their dreams immigrating thousand miles to Hawaii.
- Stroll along the streets of Lahaina for sightseeing
- Get up early and walk along the Lahaina beach . If you are the in the right season (November to February), you may see whales.
- If you do not like to stay in a big resort hotel, Don and Catherine Oceanfront Bed and Breakfast , located at northern Lahaina would be a quiet place to stay. They also rent vacation houses on Maui. (800) 296-4821,
- Drive to The Haleakala Craters via HW 37, enjoy the sunrise, or even bike all the way down. Daily or multi-day hiking tours are available.
- If you do not have to go to Kauai, the garden island, hike in the Iao Valley .
- The Blue Water Rafting will take you to those sea caves cannot be access by drive, and snorkel at the famous crescent-shape Molokini crater isle, see sea turtles, colorful tropical fish, and possibly whales.
