Maui, the Valley Isle, has 6 different regions, each with it's own distinguishing character and appeal. This uniqueness assures there is sure to be a region that appeals to you. With over 100 subdivisions and condo projects reviewed herein, you are sure to find many that offer the appeal and lifestyle you desire.
Kahakuloa, Kahului, Wailuku (center of commerce & primary airport)
The Central Maui area is "where everything is" except for our resorts. In addition to being our center of commerce, it's a major residential area too. Some communities extend up the side of the West Maui Mountains providing awesome panoramic views. Pictured is the delightful stream in Iao Valley.
Haiku, Paia, Pauwela, Sprekelsville
The North Shore is greener than other areas due to frequent rains. It's also home to a portion of the famous Road to Hana. Some would say this is the spiritual area of Maui while others would simply say it is the peaceful area. One thing that most agree on is that Mama's Fish House is one of the best on Maui. I dine there frequently myself. And surfers really like the waves at Ho'okipa. Oh, make sure to check out the majestic Honu taking an afternoon nap on Ho'okipa Beach. Please keep your distance so that you don't disturb the Honu.
Kihei, Ma'alaea, Maui Meadows, Wailea, Makena
South Maui area
The South Maui area is mostly sunny and dry with many, many resorts which appeals to travelers including those looking for luxury in Wailea and Makena. There are also large residential areas and some small to medium size shops. There are multiple beaches such as Kam I, II, & III, Charley Young Beach, Big Beach, Little Beach, and more. The road ends at La Peruse with it's visually-stunning black volcanic rock from Maui's last eruption.
Hana, Kaupo, Kipahulu, Nahiku
Think remote and beautiful when you think of Hana and the surrounding East Maui area. Wainapanapa State Park is here with it's black sand beach, lava tube, and wet cave. Hana itself is a sleeply little village which is home to Red Sand beach which is a favorite to those who know about it. Further on is Kipahulu and Seven Sacred Pools in Haleakala National Park (pictured). Scattered throughout are mostly older, Hawaiian-style homes.
Honokohau, Kaanapali, Kapalua, Lahaina, Napili, Kahana, Honokowai, Olowalu
The West Maui area is mostly dry and sunny. The drive along the pali to get there is quite scenic although sometimes subject to traffic backups. Lahaina is a fun tourist town with Front street lined with shops along the ocean. Don't miss the famous banyan tree while here. Further north are major resort areas.
Kula, Ulupalakua, Kanaio, Makawao, Olinda, Haliimaile, Pukalani
Maui Upcountry with it's higher elevation has cooler temperatures and panoramic views. Depending on the particular elevation, a fire in the fireplace may feel good in the evenings. With grocery, hardware, restaurant, nursery, and other shopping nearby one need not leave this beautiful area often. When one does drive down to other parts of the island, the 4-lane highway makes it quick and easy.
