There are many ways to get around on Maui. If you’re staying at Maui Kai, and only want to tour the west side, the Maui Public Bus is completely sufficient. The fair is only $2.00. See the Kaanapali Islander bus schedule here.
However, for convenience, we recommend that you rent a car near the Kahului Airport. You can travel around the entire beautiful island with ease and can find deals online. It’s about 30 miles from the airport, but an easy and beautiful drive, half of it along the coast. Get directions here.
If you prefer to not rent a car, there are different shuttles or taxis you can purchase from the airport to Maui Kai and vice versa. They range from $20 to $100.
