Climate & Beaches
Maui experiences fairly consistent weather, though local micro-climates are wide-varying. During summer (May to October), the average temperature is 85 degrees Fahrenheit, while the average winter temperature is 78 degrees F.
Maui’s world-famous shores range from black sand surfing meccas to laid back, golden-sand perfect-for-swimming beaches. There are endless (and colorful) stretches of coastline to choose from. In West Maui, Kaanapali Beach was once a retreat for Hawaiian royalty and today hosts cliff divers at the famed Black Rock. D.T Fleming Beach has strong currents, but is a great spot for sunbathing and watching spectacular Maui sunsets.
Activities & Attractions
Whether you want to sunbathe on beautiful beaches, golf a championship course, or hike to secluded waterfalls, there’s more to do in Maui than could possibly be accomplished on a single trip. Aside from the colorful and endless supply of beaches on the western side of the island, Maui’s central and eastern regions are home to lush valleys (Iao State Park), grand national parks (Haleakala), and scenic coastlines (the Hana Highway).
At night, Maui is brimming with is gourmet luaus, lively Tahitian dance shows and languid seaside dinners.
