Emotional Video Shows the Stunning Beauty of Lahaina Maui Before the Wildfires

Lahaina, Maui in Hawaii was devastated by wildfires that destroyed much of the town earlier this year. Many visitors remember the incredible beauty of this place and are still mourning the town’s loss.

To celebrate the beauty of Lahaina, we gathered 39 original photos taken by the Bay Area Telegraph over eight years in order to create an emotional video showing this stunning Maui town.

Our video includes places like:

  • Kimos restaurant, which was sadly entirely destroyed in the fires
  • Front Street
  • The Banyan tree
  • Ululanis Shave Ice

And many more.

We remain committed to promoting Maui’s local businesses during the long road to recovery.
