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.
