Maybe you’ve booked one of our Maui condo rentals for November or even December. Since we’re located on Ka’anapali Beach, lots of vacationers prefer to stay close when it comes to activities, dining, golfing, and ocean fun. Not to worry, with Lahaina and Ka’anapali neighboring each other in West Maui, there’s more to do than you could imagine. Here are a few of our top recommendations.

When it comes to museums, whale watching tours, ocean activities, art galleries, golfing, dining, and just having a huge time, no other area of the island compares to West Maui. Imagine yourself soaking up the sun on the beach, savoring new foods you’ve never tried before at local restaurants, or even horseback riding. It’s all here!

November is the perfect time to enjoy whale watching or take a snorkel tour. The North Pacific Humpback whales are truly a sight to behold as they grace the shorelines for several months, typically November through May.

You don’t have to go any further than Front Street in Lahaina to experience some of the most amazing surf shops, clothing boutiques, crafts, tropical cocktails, rare Maui art, and of course, great food! The perfect place to people-watch, or take in all of the historical flavor.

If you’re a history buff, you sure don’t want to miss the historic sites in Lahaina, including the Lahaina Heritage Museum, Wo Hing Museum, Hale Pa’i Museum, Pioneer Mill Smokestack and Locomotives, the Master’s Reading Room, and the Lahaina Historical Trail, to name just a few!

Golfing is another favorite for those who are passionate about the game, and there are plenty of fabulous courses in West Maui you can check out, including the Plantation Course, which is the site of the PGA’s Tournament of Champions. Who knows? You may see a few faces you recognize here.

Where’s the best place to find yourself on horseback? Ironwood Ranch, of course. With panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and a journey that takes you across unspoiled terrain where you’ll enjoy some of the most spectacular scenery on the island, this is a must-do for those who enjoy horseback riding.

This is just the short list – there are so many things to see and do in West Maui you’ll never be able to accomplish it all in one day, or even two or three!
