Lahaina comprises the coastal area along Route 30 out of a tunnel (at the south end) and via Olowalu to Napili-Honokowai (north). There are different climates in the different Lahaina districts. The historic district is the calmest and the driest, also hosting the small harbor. Kaanapali features frequent breezes. Napili and Kapalua have almost 4 times the annual rainfall in comparison with Lahaina.

In the period 1820-1845, Lahaina was the capital of Kingdom of Hawaii (1795-1895). In 1845, the capital was moved to Honolulu. During the 19th century, the port served mainly the whaling industry, with sailing ships anchoring at the waterfront. Lahaina's popularity as a top-US tropical vacation travel destination made its real estate industry one of Hawaii's most lucrative. Now many of its luxury condos and homes are sold for over USD 2 million.

As cruise port, Lahaina is a gateway to some of Hawaii's best beaches, historic sites, art galleries, cuisine and folk traditions. The port is often included in the itinerary programs of larger cruise companies like Princess, Holland America, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean.
