Kahului Travel Guide


With the island’s largest airport and commercial harbor, Kahului is Maui’s commercial hub. But it also offers plenty of natural and cultural attractions. The town was developed in the early 1950s to meet the housing needs of the large sugarcane interests here, specifically those of Alexander & Baldwin. The company was tired of playing landlord to its many plantation workers and sold land to a developer who promised to create affordable housing. The scheme worked and "Dream City," the first planned city in Hawaii, was born.
