West Maui is it’s own little world. With a strong focus on the tourist industry, West Maui offers amazing beaches, beautiful views and abundant agriculture. My office is located in Lahaina. I must honestly admit though that I live in South Maui and have a little bit of “Tunnelitis”. After living in Maui for a while, the short 25 minute ride seems like a long distance. It is a beautiful drive where you may get slowed down by breaching whales, amazing surf and enticing fruits!

West Maui is located on the north-west side of Maui – the western side of the West Maui Mountains. The main city is Lahaina which is described as being on the southwest side of the West Maui mountains. You may get a little confused by island directions…How can you be west of west? How can you be South and North? The easiest way is to look at the map or just do as the Hawaiians do…follow the coast. Directions are usually not north, south, east or west but makai (toward the sea) and mauka (toward the mountain). The West Maui Mountains, is the older volcanic ridge which is North and West of Haleakala. From West Maui you get fabulous views of Lanai and Molokai. On the South side, you can see Kaho’olawe and South Maui.
