Ma’alaea Town

Maui’s vibrant little harbor town with great food and fun!

 

Explore Maalaea, Maui, Hawaii

Located in central Maui, Maalaea is best known for its harbor, a popular departure point for several ocean activities, as well as the magnificent Maui Ocean Center, Hawaii’s largest aquarium. While most visitors aren’t likely to spend an entire day here, we highly recommend a visit to learn more about Maui’s unique marine life, grab a bite to eat, depart for an exciting day on the ocean, and during winter months, even whale watch from shore!
