Why Visit Maui
Maui offers a wide range of accommodations options, from mid-priced to high-end luxury resorts. Beaches on Maui's two West Coast tourism hubs are arguably the best in Hawaii—and a lot less crowded than Waikiki. The golf courses are great and mostly flat, and the scenery is classic Hawaiian, with mountains, beaches, and lava fields.
When to Visit Maui
In the low season, airfares and accommodations are cheaper, generally considered to be mid-April through mid-June, and September through mid-December. Generally, avoid spring break and Thanksgiving weekend. And especially avoid the Christmas to New Year's period, when airline seats and accommodations are scarce and expensive.
Average high temperatures range from 79 degrees Fahrenheit in January and February to 86 degrees in August and September; lows range from 65 to 72 degrees. January, February, March, November, and December are the rainiest months; May through September are the driest. Average water temperatures vary only slightly during the year.
