Maui City Guide: A Hawaiian Vacation Dream

Between the sugar-soft sand, bright blue waters, friendly locals, unbeatable food, and unmatched tropical weather, it’s no surprise that Maui is at the top of many travelers’ bucket lists. It’s the type of island you want to return to year after year, and we don’t blame you! Whether this is your first visit or one of many you’ve taken to the Valley Isle, here is a comprehensive Maui travel guide to make the most of your next vacation:


There is truly no bad time of year to visit Maui, but the best time of year to visit Maui for you will depend on your specific vacation wants and needs!

  • Winter (January-March)— Though the rainiest time of year and the “coolest” with temperatures averaging in the high 70s, winter is still an amazing time to visit Maui. The rain enhances the beautiful waterfalls on the Road to Hana and it’s also the best time of year for whale watching thanks to humpback whales’ migration patterns.
  • Spring (April and May)— Spring is typically the least busy time of year for visitors to Maui, making it a great time to visit. The weather is comfortable, there are fewer crowds, and it is the start of many exciting early summer activities and events.
  • Summer (June-August)— Considered the busiest time of year because school is out for the season, Maui has great temperatures averaging in the mid-80s with plenty of amazing summer events happening around the island, like the Aloha Festivals!
  • Fall and Early Winter (September-December)— School is back in session, the weather is still impeccably warm, and you miss most of the rainy season. Aside from the holiday weeks, fall has long been a favorite for those who want to save a little money on their trip and enjoy their favorite Maui attractions with fewer people around.


There are truly no undesirable areas of Maui to spend a vacation, but there are certainly some areas more popular than others! West Maui and South Maui have long been popular vacation areas thanks to the many resorts and attractions nearby. In West Maui, you will find Lahaina, Ka’anapali, and Kapalua while in South Maui, there are Kihei and Wailea.
