About Central Maui

Central Maui, nestled between West Maui and Haleakala, serves as the bustling hub for business and transportation on the island. It is a significant gateway that visitors pass through multiple times, often en route to other destinations. Home to the Kahului Airport and Harbor, Central Maui serves as the entry point for goods and people. This region is also host to important establishments such as the Maui County government, prominent commercial stores, two protected wetlands, and the picturesque 'Iao Valley. Moreover, Central Maui boasts several stunning beaches, including the birthplace of kitesurfing, offering both natural beauty and recreational opportunities.

Best Beaches and Points of Interest in Central Maui

'Iao Valley State Park

‘Iao Valley State Park is an essential destination that consistently tops guidebooks and tourist pamphlets for its undeniable allure. Accessible by car or through tour companies, the park offers paved walkways, steps, and informative signage that provides historical context. Its dramatic and picturesque landscapes make it particularly suitable for visitors of all ages, including older adults and children.

Ranking as the second wettest place in Hawai'i (with Kauai unofficially claiming the title of the wettest place on Earth), the valley's summit receives an average of over an inch of rainfall per day. However, the rain patterns can be unpredictable, with occasional downpours followed by dry spells. The abundant rainfall feeds into the 'Iao stream, which is primarily channeled away by a massive diversion managed by Wailuku Water just outside the park.

The main highlight of the park is the towering 'Iao Needle, also known as Kuka'emoku. This imposing peak, rising 1,200 feet (2,250 feet from sea level), is a result of millennia of erosion that carved away the surrounding softer rock. In Hawaiian culture, the 'Iao Needle is revered as the phallic stone of Kanaloa, the god of the ocean. Its cultural significance adds to the park's mystical and captivating ambiance.

Iao Valley holds deep cultural significance and was considered sacred, accessible only to Hawaiian royalty. The imposing cliffs within the valley served as hallowed grounds for the burial of Hawai'i's ali'i (royalty) over countless centuries. According to ancient Hawaiian beliefs, the bones of their ancestors held their mana (spiritual power). It was understood that desecrating or stealing these bones could grant power, influence, or even inflict harm upon living descendants. Such reverence for ancestral remains underscores the profound connection between the spiritual realm and the living, reinforcing the cultural importance and sanctity of Iao Valley.


Situated in central Maui, Maalaea is renowned for its bustling harbor, which serves as a hub for various ocean activities. It is also home to the impressive Maui Ocean Center, the largest aquarium in Hawaii. While visitors may not spend an entire day here, we highly recommend a visit to delve into Maui's fascinating marine life, indulge in delicious dining options, embark on thrilling ocean adventures, and even enjoy whale watching from the shore during the winter months. Maalaea offers a perfect combination of educational experiences, culinary delights, and memorable encounters with nature, making it a must-visit destination on Maui.

Spreckelsville Beach

Spreckelsville Beach, historically encompassing a two-mile stretch from Baby Beach in Spreckelsville to Kanaha Beach in Kahului, is more than just a single beach. Over the years, these beaches have become a haven for windsurfers, fishermen, and unfortunately, Maui's hidden homeless population. However, with recent developments in the area, including a new access road to Camp One, more people are discovering this hidden gem.

The individual beaches that form Spreckelsville Beach, starting from west to east, include Camp One, Sprecks Beach (also known as Euro Beach), Lobster Cove, Sugar Cove, and Baby Beach. At the eastern end, Sugar Cove and Baby Beach are separated by distinct shoreline features and access roads. Nowadays, each of these beaches is often considered separate entity, rather than being collectively referred to as "Spreckelsville Beach."
