Affordable Maui Resorts & Hotels in South Kihei
Nestled on the leeward side of Haleakala, Kihei is a beachfront condo resort town that sprang up in the 1970s and 1980s after South Maui's popularity soared as a Hawaiian vacation destination. Before water was piped down from the mountains into the coast, the Kihei area of Old Hawaii was dry and scrubby. It was initially called “Kama’ole” or “barren.” In fact, it remains one of the driest areas in Maui, receiving only 10 to 12 inches of rainfall annually.
What Kihei lacks in precipitation it more than makes up for assurance that you are likely to enjoy sunnier skies and calm clear waters on your Hawaii holiday vacation getaway. South Kihei specifically is known for its amazing white sand beaches that stretch for about 2 miles and are highly desirable for sunbathing and swimming. The majestic Haleakala Mountain also creates a rain shadow effect towards the South Maui coast, and this shields Kihei and the neighboring areas of Wailea and Maalaea from the torrential rains that make Maui’s windward side fresh and lush.
