This titling is not only the literal translation of the name, but also says a lot about the climate on Lahaina. The intense sunshine of this city is from seven to nine hours daily. Therefore, especially in the summer months, the thermometer rises up to 86 degrees. The nights are a little cooler, which guarantees a pleasant sleep.

In the winter months, temperatures drop to a minimum of 66 degrees. The water temperature of the sea, on the other hand, never drops below 75 degrees, making it an inviting place for swimming. The sea has always played an important role for the inhabitants of the city. We always recommend to book a hotel with direct location on the sea. You can enjoy a beautiful sunset there.

Number of inhabitants:
About 15,000

Metropolitan area:
165.000

It used to be a small fishing village

When King Kamehameha I overthrew the then Chief Maulioa in 1795, the town was still a small fishing village. The inhabitants lived from private fishing. King Kamehameha turned the small, sleepy fishing village into a capital in 1820, and with it the dreamy ambience changed. Until 1845 it fulfilled its tasks, which a capital has to fulfill.

By what did the people live in former times:
Fishing

The city is the most important whaling port in the Pacific

When Honolulu was given this function, Lahaina became one of the most important whaling ports in the Pacific. This also changed the everyday life of the fishermen. People from all nationalities were brought to the city by the whaling ships and thus influenced the cityscape. Until today the inhabitants of Lahaina try to keep the natural flair of their town despite progress and increasing tourism. A supporting effect on these efforts, has the since 1962 existing monument protection of the city.

Is there also a monument protection there:
Yes, since 1962

Sights in Lahaina that you should see

Numerous tourists who come to the island by boat tours thus get an opportunity to see ancient sights of the city as well. One of them is the preserved foundations of the Brick Palace, which was built by King Kamehameha I in 1803. The Palace was mainly used to receive captains of the numerous ships that docked in the port. The Governor’s Market is also located there. From there, Hawaiians engaged in brisk trade with the ship’s crews. To this day, the harbor is still in active use. Excursion boats leave from it for round trips. Large, equipped boats go out to the open sea for whale watching.

There are ferries to neighboring islands and the sailing ship Carthaginian

The ferries that ferry passengers daily to the islands of Molokai and Lanai are also based there.
