Maui Vacations & Travel Tips

When to Go

The best time to take a trip to Maui is, essentially, whenever you decide to go. Summertime and the Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Easter holidays are the most popular times to visit.

Low season occurs mostly during spring and fall. You’ll usually find better hotel deals at this time.  Average temperatures year-round range from balmy 70s to high 80s F. Surfers will find the most challenging waves in the winter, while divers usually prefer the summer. Just remember, on Maui, and throughout Hawaii, brief periods of rain are usually followed by lots of sunshine and rainbows.

Getting to Maui

Maui’s Kahului Airport (OGG) is the primary gateway to the island, receiving large commercial aircraft and most visitors to the island.  The airport is well located to resort areas on both west and south shores.  A handful of commuter airlines operate into the Kapalua Airport, also known as Kapalua-West Maui Airport (JHM). Hana Airport (HNM) is a regional airport serving flights originating from within the state.

Fast Facts

Lahaina was Hawaii’s original state capital until 1850 when the capital moved to Honolulu.

One of the world’s most breathtaking drives, the Road to Hana, contains 600 hairpin curves, myriad cliffs, and 54 one-lane bridges. Even so, most local drivers remain polite. They frequently use the “Shaka,” or “hang loose” hand symbol to signal everything from lane mergers to stop signs. Let someone else do the driving or explore the area from on high with an amazing Hana Haleakala helicopter tour.
