For beach bums and corporate warriors alike, a trip from Oakland to Kahului Airport (OGG) is like entering another world. Often overlooked by leisure travelers, Kahului boasts loads of swimming and sunbathing opportunities via Kanaha Beach Park and Baldwin Beach Park. Nightlife hot spots are located downtown and in neighboring Wailuku.
Once you land, hit up Kamehameha Avenue next to Kanaha Pond to get a snack, people watch and plan your travels. Top-rated attractions on the island include Maui Nui Botanical Gardens, Maui Ocean Center and the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. For outdoor fun, try a Haleakalā bike tour or a Waihee Ridge Trail hike.
Kahului Airport is situated on the Hana Highway next to Kahului proper. Taxis, tour buses and shuttles can be boarded directly from the hotels on West Kaahumanu Avenue, or you can rent a car near the airport. Local entertainment options include spearfishing, kiteboarding, snorkeling, golf and helicopter tours. Fun day excursions include Iao Valley State Monument in the West Maui Mountains.
A nonstop flight from Oakland International Airport (OAK) to Kahului Airport (OGG) takes five hours. As a regional air hub, Kahului Airport provides daily flights to local destinations like Honolulu, Kona and Lihue. Popular side trips include taking a ferry to Molokai and Lanai.
