Wailuku, located on Maui, is the seat of Maui County. Unlike the commercial center of Kahului, Wailuku has a small-town plantation feel centered around its Main Street. Several buildings in Wailuku are registered as historic places. It is also the gateway to nearby Iao Valley and Iao Needle.

Get in

By plane

By car

From Kahului, follow Kaahumanu Avenue (Hwy 32) west. Kaahumanu Avenue turns into Main Street after passing an overpass and viaduct. To get to Iao Valley, continue past High Street (Hwy 30) for about 0.5 mile, then take the fork in the road onto Iao Valley Road.

By Bus

Maui Bus 20 runs from Lahaina to Kahului through Wailuku.



Alas, Ooka Super Market, once the main supermarket in Wailuku, is no more. The only full-service supermarket in Wailuku is Sack N Save, at 790 Eha Street (corner of Eha St and Waiehu Beach Road). You can find a smaller selection at Takamiya Market on Market Street; they also serve a wide selection of ready-to-eat food. Branches of Foodland, Safeway, and Whole Foods Market are about 10 minutes away in Kahului.
