Welcome to Maui!

Maui’s nickname is the “Valley Isle.” It’s the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands with a land area of 729 square miles — 48 miles long and 26 miles across at its widest point.

Weather – the rule of thumb

  • South Maui (Kihei, Wailea) is the driest and sunniest part of the island
  • Upcountry (Hana, Haleakala) is generally cooler, about 8-10 degrees lower than South Maui
  • Haleakala National Park is the coolest — it can drop into the 40s or lower, especially at sunrise or sunset.

Winter season lasts from November to April and is wetter, with temperatures in the 70-80s. Summer temperatures are mid 80s – low 90s.

Ocean temperatures are mostly warm year round, sometimes reaching up to 80 degrees in the summer.
