Many tourists dream of an island vacation but are turned away by high prices and crowded beaches. Nearly everyone knows the main beaches and attractions that draw people to the islands. But the island paradise of Kihei remained relatively unknown and uninhabited until the government began selling off its property in the 1930’s.
The turning point for Kihei was in the late 1960’s when water was piped in and developers saw the area’s potential to draw in beach dwellers with affordable Maui condominium rentals. Once visitors began foregoing the lush landscapes of other Hawaiian locales for the opportunity to save some dough, it wasn’t long before this became the turning point for Kihei and its tourism draw.
Today you can create a turning point in your vacation planning and again pursue the dream of a tropical island vacation. Less crowded beaches, golf and water sports allow visitors to experience the wonders of the island without sacrificing the Maui experience or the budget. Kihei has also become known for offering craft fairs, music and concert events, and plenty of family fun.
