Stretching over 9.7 km (6 mi) of pristine south Maui coastline, Kihei is the island's driest and sunniest region, making it a perfect location for water activities and beach leisure.
Huialoha Church and McGregor Point Light are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Your inner history buff will appreciate Hale Pa'i Printing Museum and Mantokuji Temple Mission of Paia. Venture out of the city with trips to Lahaina (Kapalua Coastal Trail, Whalers Village Museum, &more), Kapalua (Kapalua Beach & D.T. Fleming Park) and Ho'okipa Beach Park (in Paia). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Keawakapu Beach, ride a horse along Pipiwai Trail, stroll through Kamaole Beach Park III, and identify plant and animal life at Pools at Ohe'o.

For traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Kihei attractions planner.

New Orleans to Kihei is an approximately 14-hour flight. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time to Hawaii Standard Time is minus 4 hours. While traveling from New Orleans, expect somewhat warmer days and about the same nights in Kihei, ranging from highs of °F to lows of °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Wed) to allow time to travel to Honolulu.

Honolulu, Oahu

Honolulu ©
In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Visiting Manoa Falls and Koko Crater Railway Trail will get you outdoors. Visit Makapuu Lighthouse Trail and Saint Augustine by-the-Sea for their historical value. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Honolulu: Kaneohe (Byodo-In Temple & Tropical Farms Macadamia Nut Farm and Farm Tour), Waianae (Aki's Beach, Swim with Dolphins, &more) and Kailua (Kailua Beach Park, Lanikai Pillboxes, &more). There's much more to do: walk around Waimanalo Beach, admire the verdant scenery at Waimea Valley, stroll through Sharks Cove, and capture your vacation like a pro with an inspiring photography tour.

To plan Honolulu vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

You can fly from Kihei to Honolulu in 3 hours. In June, daily temperatures in Honolulu can reach °F, while at night they dip to °F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) so you can travel to Lihue.

Lihue, Kauai

Lihue ©
Lihue or Līhue is an unincorporated census-designated place (CDP) and the county seat of Kauai County, Hawaii. Visit Kalalau Lookout and Kilohana for their historical value. Visit Hanalei Beach and Kalapaki Beach for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Lihue: Salt Pond Beach Park (in Hanapepe), Na Pali Coast State Park (in Wainiha) and Hanalei (Limahuli Garden and Preserve & Hanalei Valley Lookout). There's still lots to do: kick your exploration up a notch at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks, see some colorful creatures with a scuba or snorkeling tour, kick back and relax at Hanalei Bay, and take some stellar pictures from Sleeping Giant Trail.

For reviews, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Lihue road trip planning tool.

Getting from Honolulu to Lihue by flight takes about 2.5 hours. In June in Lihue, expect temperatures between °F during the day and °F at night. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 26th (Sun) so you can travel to Kailua-Kona.

Kailua-Kona ©
Thanks to its favorable location near a mountain range blocking the northeasterly trade winds, Kailua-Kona gets little rainfall, allowing adventure seekers and nature lovers a chance to enjoy over 300 days of sunshine each year.
Waipio Valley and Pu'uhonua O Honaunau National Historical Park are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get some historical perspective at Kealakekua Bay and Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve. Explore Kailua-Kona's surroundings by going to Kapaau (Keokea Beach Park & Kapa’a Beach Park), Papakōlea Green Sand Beach (in Naalehu) and Spinzone Laundry (in Ocean View). Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at Kanaloa Octopus Farm, enjoy the sand and surf at Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area, tour the pleasant surroundings at 49 Black Sand Beach, and surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.

To see reviews, maps, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Kailua-Kona visit site.

You can fly from Lihue to Kailua-Kona in 2.5 hours. In June, daily temperatures in Kailua-Kona can reach °F, while at night they dip to °F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sun) early enough to go by car to Hilo.

One of the island of Hawaii's major towns, Hilo contains a mix of Asian and Polynesian cultures and is known for its proximity to a national park encompassing two active volcanoes.
Visiting Hawaii Tropical Botanical Garden and Nature & Wildlife Tours will get you outdoors. Relax by the water at Punalu‘U Beach and Reeds Bay Beach Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Hilo: Pahoa (Steam Vents & Kapoho Tide Pools), Volcano (Volcano Winery, Jagger Museum, &more) and Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Thurston Lava Tube (Nahuku), Kilauea Iki Trailhead, &more). Next up on the itinerary: step off the mainland to explore Coconut Island, examine the collection at Pacific Tsunami Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Liliuokalani Gardens, and enjoy the sand and surf at Honoli'i Beach Park.
