Are you planning a destination vacation of a lifetime to Maui? Aloha! Our warm, beautiful, and laid-back island welcomes you with open arms. As you begin to plan your vacation, one of the first big decisions you will need to make is which part of the island you want to stay on. Maui is often divided into several different parts: South Maui, West Maui, North Shore, Central Maui, and Upcountry. Each area is special in its own way, but we think that South Maui is, hands down, the best. By staying in South Maui, you will have easy access to some of the island’s most gorgeous beaches, as well as great shopping areas, superb golf courses, and other important conveniences.

The Beaches of South Maui

Beaches, beaches, beaches! Yes, we know you’ve been dreaming of soft sand, and shining, turquoise water. If you want to run, swim, play, and relax on the very best beaches in Hawaii, South Maui is the place to be. South Maui includes Kihei, Wailea, and Makena, the most popular beaches on the island. Your family can have tons of fun snorkeling in the water, taking a surf lesson, or having a beach picnic.

Ali’i Resorts is proud to offer plenty of options that are right on the water or within easy walking distance to these beaches.

The Golf Courses of South Maui

If you love hitting the greens, then you are in for an absolute treat. South Maui offers you four deluxe golf courses. They are: Maui Nui Golf Club, Wailea Blue, Wailea Emerald, and Wailea Gold. Each one of these courses will challenge you in a different way. Each one offers spectacular views as you move through the course. You’ll be able to see the gorgeous oceans, volcanic cliffs, and even the other islands in the distance on a clear day.

Shopping in South Maui

Sure, South Maui is filled with beaches and golf courses, but it also includes the practical destinations that you will need during your trip. These types of things might not be at the top of your must-have list, but you’ll appreciate them when you realize you forgot your shampoo or what to buy food so you can make a dinner at home. Of course, if you want a real shopping day, nothing beats The Shops of Wailea, which offers your favorite shopping guilty pleasures, including Banana Republic, Gap, Quiksilver, Tommy Bahama, Tiffany & Co, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada, and more.

Staying in South Maui
