When to Go to Maui

Is there ever a wrong time to go to Maui? Winter (December to March) is high season, largely because of the unappealing weather on the US mainland. It's a bit rainier in winter and a bit hotter in summer (June through August) here, but there are no extremes and cooling trade winds modify the heat throughout the year. Winter storms can last for days, which can make this season slightly less appealing than summer, but not by much.

If you're on a tight budget, low season is April to mid-December, when accommodation rates are cut by up to 30%. Avid divers should come in summer, skilled surfers in winter. Come in September or October for cultural events such as the Aloha Festival. Beware of crowds and high prices around Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year and Easter.

Getting Around Maui

Kahului, just outside the town of the same name, is Maui's main airport. Shuttle buses run between the airport and town on the hour, and from there you can connect to Kihei-Wailea or Lahaina-Ka'napali. Maui has a limited public shuttlebus service which runs between the airport and the main seaside resorts, but no public bus service. Tourist shuttlebuses connect Wailea, Kihei and Ka'napali's Whalers Village shopping centre.

The Maui Shopping Express stops at many of the island's largest shopping centers, and runs six times a day. The double-decker Lahaina Express shuttles between Ka'napali and Lahaina. Most resorts have shuttles that zip between various hotels.

Car-rental prices are competitive and most of the big agencies have a booth at the airport. Taxis travel all over the island.
