Most visitors to Maui will experience Kahului, Maui’s largest city that is home to the island’s main airport and deep-water port. These assets make Kahului a trade hub. Locals flock to its malls and commercial districts for weekly shopping. West of Kahului, the historic town of Wailuku is popular for antiquing. Nearby, the 1,200-foot Iao Needle rock peak is a famous Maui landmark.
