Kihei, Maui, Hawaii, USA.
Gay and Lesbian Hotels, Inns and Guest Houses - Reviews and Ratings. Gay and Lesbian Travel.

Hawaiians used to refer to the area of Kihei as "Kama ole" which means "barren." Situated on the coast, southwest of Haleakala, the area is known for its dry, dusty and hot days - with less than 13 inches of rain annually. Today Kihei retains much of that 1970's look. Aside from more tourists, more traffic and a few more upscale merchants little has changed. It remains, however, a top destination for gay and lesbian travelers who want to spend time on Maui without draining their savings accounts.

Kihei offers gay and gay friendly hotels, inns and guesthouses for the gay and lesbian traveler. Prices and amenities range from modest to deluxe so there is a good choice for the discerning gay and lesbian traveler. Best of all, when you exit almost any lodging in Kihei, the beach is right across the street.

The town is bordered by beaches and the South Kihei Road on one side and the newer Pi-ilani Highway on the other. The highway is used mostly by gay and lesbian travelers staying in the Wailea Resort area to avoid the traffic in Kihei.

The beaches and the ocean are the main attractions to Kehei. The coastline consists of one beach after another. These beaches are anything but barren today, and are packed at weekends. They are also some of the best lifeguarded beaches in Hawaii. One Kihei beach may be favored for swimming, another for body surfing or board surfing. Each one is wide, sandy and sunny - a perfect postcard, the quintessential tropical beach.

Kihei's Kalama Beach Park has shady lawns and palm trees dotting its 36-oceanfront acres. Gay and lesbian travelers can enjoy a great craft fair, music concerts and other fun events throughout the year.

If shopping is high on your list, there are no fewer than ten shopping malls of varying sizes crammed in between Kihei's condominiums and hotels.

Eating out is never a problem in Kihei. While many gay and lesbian travelers choose to self cater, the town has a wide selection of restaurants from fast food and moderately priced chains to a number of upscale restaurants featuring Hawaiian Regional and Pacific Rim cuisine.

Bird watchers and nature lovers will also find something to enjoy. The harbor at Ma-alaea is the place to charter fishing excursions, whale watching expeditions and snorkel trips to Molokini. There is a excellent public golf course in Kihei, as well as world class resort golf courses nearby in Wailea and Makena.

So, in Kihei, Maui, Hawaii, gay and lesbian travelers can enjoy the sunshine, surf and sand that are the hallmark of the area.
