|The boat trips out of the marina in Ma'alaea harbor offer something for everyone: whale watching, diving, snorkeling at Molokini, charter fishing, or a romantic dinner cruise to watch the sunset.
Play golf at one of the world class courses on the Island, go windsurfing, kayaking, surfing, or test your courage with a bicycle ride down 10,000 foot Haleakala.
Our beach stretches for almost four miles, past a bird sanctuary and state park, to the north end of Kihei - perfect for walking, shelling, sunning and swimming. Visit Iao Valley, where there are always rain clouds, to see the sites of ancient Hawaiian battles or drive through the rain forests and waterfalls on the incredibly beautiful trip to Hana.
Watch windsurfers cutting across the surf at Ho'okipa and when the "surf's up" watch surfers from all over the world show their skills on the Ma'alaea rollers right outside your door. Explore a few of the hidden coves and beaches that surround this beautiful Island.
Sample the wide selection of shopping: visit Lahaina Town, an old whaling village, full of history and wonderful shopping and restaurants; stroll through Makawai, cowboy town/art colony upcountry; check out the abundance of shopping centers, supermarkets and farmer's markets. The Maui Performing Arts Center has a wide variety of cultural events going on, and there is always entertainment at the many large resorts on the Island. Try some of the incredible restaurants - it would take months to sample them all!
Surrounded by beach, cane fields, public garden, bird sanctuary, Ma'alaea Harbor, a sparkling new aquarium and several outstanding restaurants, Kanai'a Nalu is the perfect base for your vacation on Maui. Watch the sun rise over Haleakala, take a morning walk on the four miles of sandy beach, have breakfast on the lanai while you watch the whales playing in the bay, enjoy the lush, tropical grounds and pool, walk down to the aquarium or marina and eat at one of the restaurants overlooking the harbor.
