Kihei...30 to 35 minutes depending on where you go. Lahaina, 35 to 40...Kaanapali is about 5-7 minutes north of that. Honokawai, Napili and Kapalua add time to the trip as you travel north.

That's what I was thinking, Mamma ... Lahaina is about 10 minutes longer. Maybe 15. Hockey - it's not a huge amount of difference.

Kahului to Kiehi 15 min

Kahului to Lahaina 40

Airport to central Lahiana, 24 miles, takes 35 to 45 minutes....

And we have ALL driven it when it takes much longer.

Airport to central Kihei 13 miles, takes 20 to 25 minutes, and is far less prone to severe congestion than the road to Lahaina (particularly with the completed expansion of the highway to Puunene).

Mamma, if you are getting from central Lahaina to Kaanapali, a distance of 4 to 5 miles, in five minutes, you are driving far too fast.

SLOW DOWN !!!! There was a pedestrian killed on the highway in Lahaina by a tourist driver just last night.
