Maui Harbor Maps Information
Maluaka Beach, Makena Information A Maui boating adventure from Maluaka Beach in Makena is an experience you should not miss. However, getting to the beach can be a little complicated. The parking is south of the beach on Makena Keonoio Rd. Take Makena Alanui Road south past the Makena Golf & Beach Club, and then on the right, you will see Makena Keonoio Rd. Once on the Makena Keonoio, you will see parking on the right. From the parking lot, head toward the beach path and follow the path down to the beach.
Maalaea Harbor Information: All of the parking at Maalaea Harbor is paid, so make sure to use the QR code on the posted signs. Maalaea Harbor hosts some of Maui’s top snorkeling, whale watching, and sunset cruising vessels. It is also home to some great restaurants, including Seascape Maalaea Restaurant, Tante’s Fishmarket, and Maalaea General Store. You could spend an entire day in Maalaea with a morning snorkel adventure, lunch at Seascape, a visit to the Maui Ocean Center & Aquarium, dinner at Tante’s Fishmarket, and then a concert or nightlife at Da Playground. No matter what you do, there is plenty of fun to be had in Maalaea.
Lahaina Harbor Information: Lahaina Harbor is located in historical Lahaina at the South end of the town. Parking in Lahaina can be difficult as it is very popular and busy. There are a few free lots, but they usually fill up pretty early in the day. There are several paid lots on Dickenson Street and at the intersection of Prison Street and Front Street (about a 5 – 10 minute walk). There is a large loading zone at Lahaina Harbor, so take advantage if any members of your party have difficulty walking or if you have any bags or heavy items. Lahaina was Hawaii’s first capital, and there is plenty of history to explore. Lahaina is also a hot spot for restaurants, shopping, art, and nightlife. A walk down Front Street should be considered if you visit this area.
Kihei Boat Ramp Information: Kihei Boat Ramp is a fairly mellow location as this is where local fishermen and undocked boats typically launch. This also makes it nice for taking a tour as you won’t have to fight any crowds to get there. Parking is available in the top two parking sections, as trucks and trailers get the lower parking lot priority. Completing your water adventure here puts you close to the action in Kihei. So if you want to grab some lunch or a celebratory cocktail, Kihei’s eateries and watering holes are just a couple miles north of this location.
