Curious about what to do on Maui in fall?
The majority of people choose summer to visit the Hawaiian island, but even though fall may be a ‘low’ season on Maui, there are still a lot of reasons to plan a stay here during this time.
First of all, if you choose to visit Maui in the fall, you’ll notice it’s less crowded with tourists. Second, the weather is pretty great here all year round, so just because summer is over, it doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the time you spend on the island and maybe even get a nice tan.
That in mind, here’s what to do on Maui in fall.
1. What to do on Maui in fall: whale watching
If you’re curious about going on a whale watching tour, fall is the season to come visit Maui! You’ll also be able to spot the whales in winter, but fall is a less crowded season, so if you’re not a fan of crowds, now is the perfect time to enjoy the island.
Around November is when the whale watching season starts. During the cold months, they migrate down from Alaska so that they can swim around in the warm waters of Hawaii.
If you and your family plan a stay here in fall, you can’t miss them!
2. Attend special events held on Maui in fall
When the summer’s over, the weather tends to get a little less hot. It’s the perfect opportunity to attend some of the many events held on Maui in fall and experience the culture and lifestyle of living on the island!
For instance, if it’s Aloha Friday, there’s possibly a street party going on somewhere! Town parties on Maui are organized mainly in Wailuku, Lahaina, Makawao, and Kihei. So, if you’re wondering what to do on Maui in fall, you should definitely add “attending a town party” to your list!
If you plan your visit on the first days of November, you may be able to attend “Restaurant Week in Wailea”. It’s a great opportunity to eat some great food, at a reasonable price, all the while sustaining local families around Maui.
