While the area was originally a fishing village with few residents, the community began cultivating a reputation for tourism in the 1970s. The town grew rapidly, and now Kihei is known throughout the island for its laidback and friendly lifestyle, beautiful and vibrant village, and jaw-dropping beaches.

People & Lifestyle

Residents living in Kihei tend to enjoy a much more relaxed lifestyle. Neighbors moved to this community because of its proximity to the beach and everything that comes along with it. There is a special appreciation for outdoor recreational activities no matter where you go, with swimming, hiking, biking opportunities easily found in every corner of the community.

The community is one of the most lively and friendly in the area, as well as one of the most affluent. Beautiful coastal views and high-end amenities mean that homes in this area are some of the priciest around. However, those prices allow homeowners access to a bustling town, spectacular homes, and a one-of-a-kind beachy lifestyle that can’t be matched.

Dining, Entertainment & Shopping

The dining scene in Kihei is as lively and diverse as the rest of the community, allowing residents to enjoy delicious eats at every turn. The Maui Brew Company, Hawaii’s largest craft brewery, is one of the most popular spots around. Their Kihei tasting room offers amazing brewery tours so that guests can get the whole experience. After your tour and tasting, you can always head over to their exceptional restaurant, which they describe as a “brewery-to-table” dining experience.

When residents are looking for a healthier option, Fork and Salad is a perfect choice. Ensuring that guests never have to sacrifice flavor when eating a healthy, their menu includes dishes such as a smoky papaya chicken sandwich, an endless summer grain bowl, and a classic beet and goat cheese salad.

Moose McGillycuddy’s Pub and Cafe is another local favorite. Offering authentic Hawaiian delights and classic American comfort food, this one-of-a-kind restaurant is an experience in and of itself. Their menu includes dishes like Kalua pig sandwiches, Mahi fish tacos, and baby moose wings that will leave your mouth watering.

Nalu’s South Shore Grill is another go-to breakfast and lunch spot. Here, guests can find everything from acai bowls to island-style ribs with kimchi. Make sure you try one of their fresh-squeezed juice “quenchers” to help get you ready for the day.

Things To Do

While Kihei is incredibly close to the many wonders Maui has to offer, there’s no reason to leave the community itself. Kihei has everything a resident could hope for to take up their spare time, and most of the community find themselves choosing to leave as little as possible.

Residents interested in wildlife will love visiting the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge. Established in 1992, the center provides local wildlife with over 700 acres of protected lands and is one of the few completely natural areas left in the Hawaiian islands.

The Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary is another beautiful natural refuge in Kihei. Not only can you learn about these majestic creatures and efforts in place to ensure their protection, but the center also encourages water-based activities that coincide with their mission, including boating, snorkeling, diving, paddling, fishing, and surfing all within the sanctuary.
