Located in between West and South Maui is Mā’alaea. Decorated with a popular boat harbor and handful of restaurants, Mā’alaea is most famous for being home to the Maui Ocean Center; “Freight Train,” aka one of the fastest waves in the world; and a sweet Maui condominium community.

Hosting gorgeous Pacific Ocean, outer island, and Maui coastal views, Mā’alaea is a pretty fabulous place to call home. There is a tourist element that frequents the Mā’alaea areas daily, but it is also a quiet and private residential community.

Those who live in the Mā’alaea area have a lot of amazing perks including easy access to a variety of ocean activities, and the added convenience of being only within minutes away from West Maui, South Maui, Wailuku and Kahului.

Among many fantastic perks for Mā’alaea residents and visitors are the North Pacific humpback whales. Every winter, these magical creatures grace Maui’s shores usually beginning sometime in November; and usually until late April.

The whales pay homage to Mā’alaea by swimming in pods around the West and South Maui coastlines. When the whales are in Maui’s waters, you can, without a doubt, watch them breach, frolic and play from Mā’alaea’s shoreline. It’s incredible!
