Your guide to Maui
Known as the Valley Isle, Maui has exactly what you want in an island vacation, whether that’s beautiful beaches, vibrant snorkeling, lush waterfall hikes, championship golf courses, or world-class surfing. Each part of the over 700-square-mile Hawaiian island offers a slightly different experience: Head to West Maui to stroll the bustling beachfronts of Kapalua Bay Beach, Kaanapali Beach, and Kahana, or peruse farmers’ markets in historic Lahaina or mellow Napili. In South Maui, upscale Wailea is famous for its ocean-view luxury condos and five-star spas, and nearby Kihei is a great central base if you want to explore Haleakalā National Park and the verdant eastern parts of the island. No matter where you stay, be sure to spend some quality time relaxing on the lanai.
The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Maui
There are essentially two seasons in Maui, but year-round, the temperature stays nice and warm. The summer season, May to October, is a little hotter, with temperatures in the mid-80s. Winters are slightly cooler, with temperatures in the high 70s. August, September, and October are the wettest months, but you can expect passing rain showers throughout the year.
The weather can also change depending on where you are on the island, thanks to Maui’s many microclimates. It tends to be drier on the leeward (west) side of the island and colder at higher elevations, so don’t forget to pack warm layers if you plan to visit the summit of Haleakalā.
Top things to do in Maui
Haleakalā National Park
It’s worth the effort to reserve a permit to visit the 10,000-foot summit of Haleakalā, a dormant volcano, for sunrise. Once the sun is up, follow some of the park’s well-marked hiking trails through varied terrain, including alpine desert, shrubland, and bamboo forests.
The Road to Hana
The epic 52-mile Hana Highway winds through some of Maui’s most lush and dramatic scenery. With no stops, the drive takes only about three hours, but take your time: Explore some of the secluded beaches and waterfalls along the route, and be sure to stop at roadside banana bread stands when you get hungry.
The shores and reefs around Maui offer outstanding snorkeling, but Molokini, a volcanic caldera off Maui’s northwest shore, is the only protected marine sanctuary in the state. Join a boat tour to experience the incredibly clear waters, which are home to more than 200 species of fish, as well as turtles, octopus, and the occasional whale shark.
