The historic community of Wailuku lies in the foothills of the West Maui Mountains along the Iao Valley. The Iao Valley State Park has a paved walkway that provides a viewpoint of the Iao Needle, and it was once the location of a historic battle led by King Kamehameha. Ma'alaea Harbor features the Maui Ocean Center, which houses native marine life. The destination also serves as a whale observation point. Kanaha Beach remains popular with surfers and windsurfers. The Maui Arts and Cultural Center, along with the Old Iao Theater, tell local history through exhibits and live presentations.
The Maui Public Bus Transit System and the Maui Bus-Commuter Service provide transportation in and around the community. State Highway 30 bisects Wailuku and connects with Highways 31, 37, 311 and 340.
As early as the 15th century, Wailuku, Hawaii, was known by locals as a sacred burial ground for royals and chieftains and the heart of the power of the islands. During the 1800s, European missionaries arrived and brought religion and agricultural skills that led to the development of the sugar cane industry. Plantations emerged and flourished in the humid tropical climate. Today, there are a variety of clubs, pubs and bars that offer freshly cooked food and live entertainment in the evenings.
