If you haven’t heard of Kahului Hawaii, that’s because it doesn’t get a lot of credit as a top tourist destination. That being said, this census-designated place has plenty of tourists passing through, as it is where you will find the main Maui airport. The Kahului Airport mostly receives transfer flights from the Honolulu Airport, so it is a major entryway for Maui vacations. And considering all that Kahului has to offer, it merits consideration as a good Maui travel base.
