I loved it! I love the beach and the calm atmosphere, the friendly people! I want to live there!
Maui is my favorite island out of the four I’ve visited. It’s smaller, has the road to Hana, the best banana brand You’ll ever taste, mountain and ocean views, and beautiful beaches with plenty of sea turtles!
Kahului is the city where you will likely fly in and out of the airport. There are some nice amenities here, like Costco and Whole Foods, but the truth is, you will most likely leave here as quickly as you can to head to the resorts. This is not the destination in Maui, but it is a great resource if you need it.
Kahului is "town" to locals. Office max, old navy, sports authority and other non-tourist shops and restaurants.
