Wahikuli Wayside Park


Just 2 miles north of the heart of Lahaina and right on the road to Ka'anapali, this multi-section county park follows the shore and is great for walking and cycling. There are dozens of shady picnic tables, reef-protected beaches and fine views of Lana‘i. It's a short bike ride or nice stroll from central Lahaina.
