When to Go
If you’d like to see the whale migration, you should come during the winter months. Every island offers tours to get up close and personal. The temperature on Maui’s coast rarely dips below 60° during the coldest winter day. The weather is consistently in the 70°-80°s. The majority of the rain the island sees comes during the winter (November – March) where rains are quickly followed by sunshine and rainbows.
- Kahului Airport is the island’s main airport with two smaller commuter airports: Kapalua (West Maui) and Hana (East Maui). Many airlines offer direct flights to Maui, though a Honolulu connection is just a short 30-minute jump away.
- Generally, the west side of the island is wetter than the eastern shore.
- It is best to rent a car while visiting your Maui vacation rental.
- You will need to go through Agriculture Quarantine before departing from your Maui villa rental. It is best not to bring fruit or other plants back home without documentation showing you are allowed to export.
