How to Reach Wailea-makena - The Easiest Way to Reach Wailea-makena


  • By Air: Kahului Airport is the main airport in Maui. From there, resorts generally provide pick up and drop to Wailea or Makena. Other airports on the island are the JHM West Maui Kapalua airport and the Hana Airport. But only propeller planes can land on these two airports because of their small size.

  • By Bus: Bus stops are not many but the bus frequency is good.
  • By Car: Renting a car is a good way to explore the entire island.
  • By Taxi: Taxis are available; however, they tend to be expensive.
  • On Foot: Wailea and Makena are small enough to be explored on foot.
