Flights And Sights

Flying To Kahului With American Airlines

Imagine two verdant peaks floating on an azure sea, bordered by a series of white and gold scalloped beaches: that's what you'll see when you fly to Kahului, Maui with American Airlines. Relax on the beach and listen to the waves. Tee off at one of Maui's top golf courses, decompress at the island's many spas, and watch the sun begin another day in paradise with you fly to Kahului, Maui with American Airlines.

Relax at Hawaii's largest spa

Visit the 50,000 square-foot Spa Grande at the Grand Wailea Resort. The best of European architecture (ceiling murals, larger-than-life Roman-style sculptures, mammoth Greek columns), the finest Eastern traditions (Japanese-style traditional baths, exotic treatments from India) and the lure of the islands (tropical foliage, ancient Hawaiian treatments) combine to make this a memorable day.

Abandon all your worries when you walk the golden sands of Wailea Beach on Maui's sun-baked south shore

You can ride the gentle waves or don mask, fins and snorkel and explore the Neptunian underwater world. Beachside, you can just soak up the unobstructed view of the neighboring islands of Kahoolawe and Lanai, and the tiny half-moon crater of Molokini off in the distance.

Experience the exhilaration as you tee off at Maui's world-class golf resort, at Kapalu

It's located on the wind-swept northwestern slopes of rolling foothills of Puu Kukui, where the vivid manicured greens give way to the deep blue of the Pacific. No matter what your golf score, you'll feel fantastic.

Feel the wind kissing your face and the sun warming your body

Lay on the deck of a fast-paced catamaran aboard the Trilogy's day sail to the island of Lanai. Once you arrive, you'll get a tour of the small, unspoiled island, as well as time on the beach and a barbecue dinner, before you sail back to Maui.

Drive to the top of the 10,000-foot dormant volcano Haleakala

There, you can watch the stars disappear and the sun rise over the Pacific Ocean. At first just a tiny bright line appears on the horizon, then slowly the line expands and the sky lights up in a rainbow of colors.

More Things to Do in Kahului

Follow American Airlines as we go off the beaten path to discover more things to do in Kahului, Maui. Take a day to drive through a tropical rainforest along the Hana Highway, explore the Upcountry region, where cowboys and farmers roam, or the historic town of Lahaina, where history still is alive. American will be with you every step of the way.

Adventure through a tropical rainforest on the Hana Highway

Take the family and stop along the way to plunge into icy mountain pools at the bottom of cascading waterfalls, gaze at the waves pummeling black-sand beaches, inhale the aroma of blooming ginger and take a trip back in time to "old Hawaii" in the tiny village of Hana.

Hunt for whales on land while they are visiting Maui's waters

From December to April, you can see the 45-foot long humpback whales leap out of the water, slap their fins on the surface and spout water through their blow holes. For a good vantage, seek out the Scenic Point, at Mile Marker 9 along the Honoapiilani Highway, just outside of Maalaea.

Explore a side of Hawaii that visitors rarely experience – upcountry Maui on the slopes of Haleakala

Cowboys, farmers and other rural residents live in the tiny towns of Makawao, Kula and Ulupalakua, amongst the acres of onions, lettuce, tomatoes and tropical flowers. You'll even find Maui's only vineyard and winery—it's all an entirely different world from the island's resorts.

Walk back in history along the streets of the old whaling town of Lahaina

The family can wander through the oldest house in the town, built by Rev. Dwight Baldwin in 1834, see the giant (12-foot tall and weighing 3.5 tons) statue of Buddha at Jodo Mission, and stand in the 1851 prison built for those frisky whalers.

Plunge beneath the waves to explore the magical underwater world surrounding Molokini

It may look like a crescent moon fallen from the sky, but it's the top of an old crater partially submerged in water, where a kaleidoscopic cloud of tropical fish flutter by, with exotic corals on the crater's floor below. If your family is lucky, a green sea turtle may lumber by.
