Spend Time at the Beaches
Lahaina’s Baby Beach is a favorite destination for families visiting Maui. The calm shallow water is ideal for kids to swim without having to worry about big waves. Just down the road, you can find a three-mile stretch of picturesque white sand at Ka’anapali Beach. This beach is an excellent place for swimming, snorkeling, or whale watching with the family.
Visit the Maui Ocean Center
Located about 25 minutes from Lahaina is the Maui Ocean Center in Wailuku. Kids will have the opportunity to interact and witness the incredible marine life that lives in the Pacific Ocean. See humpback whales up close, get acquainted with the green sea turtles, and view 40 Hawaiian species at the living coral reef. We recommend this attraction as an educational and fun stop for families visiting Maui. Buy tickets for the Maui Ocean Center here.
