If you haven’t yet had the chance to check out our most recent blogs, we’ve been exploring the different areas that make up South Maui. So far, we’ve talked about Maalaea and North Kihei, but let’s travel deeper into South Maui, more specifically, South Kihei.
Both residents and visitors alike enjoy warm and sunny South Maui for a number of reasons; The gorgeous beaches, stunning sunsets, and the clear views of Maui’s neighboring islands of Lanai, Kahoolawe and the Molokini Crater, are just the beginning. Along with breathtaking scenery, this beautiful beach town offers a variety of activities, dining and entertainment for every age group.
South Kihei is home to a variety of great parks and beaches. Kalama Park is perfect for just about any occasion or activity and great for the entire family. This spacious beach park has a number of fantastic areas to enjoy numerous activities including tennis, basketball, baseball, skating, volleyball, as well as a children’s playground and BBQ areas with covered pavilions perfect for a relaxing cookout. Right down the road from Kalama Pak, the Kamaole Beach Parks I, II & III are three more great choices for those looking to enjoy a day of swimming, snorkeling, and relaxation in the warm Maui sun.
Nearby to many of South Kihei’s best parks and beaches are ample (and quite delicious!) casual dining options. Kihei Caffe is a great spot for a quick and delicious breakfast. With a generous menu to choose from, you’re sure to find a new favorite at this local eatery. While you’re there, be sure to try one of our personal favorites: the giant cinnamon rolls. For lunch, pop in to “Maui’s Best Sandwich Shop” 808 Deli. Paia Fish Market South Side is another favorite spot and is always a great choice for both lunch and dinner.
