3 blissful reasons to love Maui in the spring

It’s no secret that Maui is a spectacular place to hang out all year round. Sure, winter and summer are popular times to visit, but have you considered the months of March, April and May?

Spring in Maui is actually an excellent time to visit. For one thing, the winter tourists have left and the summer crowds have yet to arrive, and the average temperatures remain in the 80s. This means better deals on airfare and accommodations plus fewer people crowding your warm and toasty beach.

We’ve got a few other reasons why you might love Maui in the spring:



Too many mangoes to sell


You heard that right — mangoes. If you’ve ever had one, then you know exactly what we’re talking about when we say a mango will put a smile on your face. They are divine fruits — something like a tropical pear, but much more juicy, succulent and versatile.

Starting in early April, mangoes start dropping to the ground (or thumping on metal rooftops). As the season progresses, you’ll start to see mangoes available everywhere in many different forms, from fruit stands to salsa to pie to…you name it.

Says one Maui mango fan:

I am deliriously happy with mangoes — mango smoothies, mango cobbler, mango bread, and mangoes eaten without any fanfare, the juice running down my chin.



Whales can say aloha, too!

This means spring still offers prime time whale viewing off the coasts of West and South Maui, where the ocean is calm and relatively shallow.

Near some whales? Try this: put your head underwater and listen. If you’re lucky, you’ll hear the whales sing, and it’s one of the most enchanting sounds you’ll ever witness.

Mind = blown, we promise.

If you’re a windsurfer, springtime is the sweet spot because:

  • there are still excellent winter swells on the north and west-facing shores
  • early summer swells starting arriving on the south shores
  • tradewinds pick up

In essence — the spring (and fall, too) are your best bet if you’re looking for a combination of both wind and waves on both sides of the island.
