If you’re looking for a break that includes sun, warmth, and plenty of fun, you’ll want to make sure you consider Maui for your 2024 vacation. When you sit down to plan the ultimate Maui retreat this year, you’ll want to consider things like places to go, things to do, where to stay, and every other little detail you can think of before you go. No matter where you go in the Aloha State, there are some tips and tricks to having the vacation of a lifetime.

When You Go

Your need for a fun and relaxing getaway can come at any time of year, but there are some prime times to make that getaway to Maui. Many people choose the Hawaiian Islands for popular school break times – spring, summer, and winter holidays. It’s a great place to spend time when the weather back home is less than perfect. Keep in mind, though, that every other vacationer is thinking of these prime times, too. You’ll run into high prices on everything from airfare to lodging and activities. Choose off times and monitor prices to make sure you’re getting the best deal.

Getting Here

Maui is Hawaii’s second biggest island! With over 700 square miles of land, there’s a lot of ground to cover. Maui has three airports: Kahului, Kapalua, and Hana. You’ll likely be arriving at Kahului since it’s the only airport that allows jet planes. You’ll have the address and all other information necessary to access your rental, some of which may be a bit of a drive from the airport. If you plan on doing any air-based island-hopping, your flight may take off from Kapalua or Hana.

Getting Around

Pick up your rental vehicle at the airport and head out on a Maui adventure of a lifetime. You’ll have access to it whenever you need, so you can pack up your crew and head out on your own schedule. Uber, Lyft, and taxi services are also available, but like many other things on the island, they can get expensive.

Have Cash

While most travelers don’t think to carry cash, either for safety or the declining need for it, you’ll want some on-hand. Tips for drivers, valets, activity guides, other servicepeople are appreciated. These people don’t have the ability to swipe a credit or debit card, unlike servers and desk agents with computers and card readers.

Book Popular Activities in Advance

The island itself is an attraction! With so much to see and do just walking outside, you won’t be short on things to do and see. For popular excursions like snorkeling and SCUBA, marine life spotting tours, and other water activities, you’ll want to book before you arrive. Another must-do, an authentic Hawaiian lu’au, also need to be booked ahead of time. There are many scattered across the island, hosted by hotel resorts as well as private businesses, but they sell out fast. Even guided tours of the Road to Hana fill up fast, so advanced reservations for your most sought-after activities are a must.

Weather

No matter what time of year you visit Maui you’ll experience sun and warmer temperatures. Winter highs are in the low 80s and lows in the mid 60s. Summer turns up the heat a little with highs in the high 80s and lows in the 70s. With less than an inch of rain on average in the wettest months, you can be rest assured to have good weather during your Maui adventure.

Packing

This usually goes hand-in-hand with weather. You want to pack your favorite clothes, weather-appropriate outdoor gear, toiletries, and other essentials. Keep in mind each vacation rental provided by My Perfect Stays includes bedroom and bathroom linens, and a welcome kit that includes a starter pack of laundry detergent. In-unit laundry means you can pack just your favorites and have the ability to wash and dry them throughout your trip.

Culture

The Hawaiian Islands are a blend of Hawaiian, Polynesian, and other cultures, and you can experience each on your visit. Attend a lu’au, or visit the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. Learn about area culture and customs or take in a show presented by various performers like the Hawai’i Youth Symphony, or nationally-recognized artists like UB40, Old Dominion, and Wayne Newton. 

Island Time

You’ll also learn about the unspoken aspect of Hawaiian culture: Island Time. Things move a little slower on the island, and while reservations require you to show up at a certain time, it may take a few minutes to get going. Apply it to your own activities that don’t run on a schedule. Take your time loading up the rental car and heading out to explore and take all the time you want when you come across a place or thing that interests you.

Top Tip: Stay with Us!

The best tip of all we can give you is awesome accommodations! Take it from us that there’s no better place to stay during your Maui 2024 vacation than a relaxing home away from home in a vacation rental provided by My Perfect Stays. Book a cozy studio-style unit for a solo or sweetheart island retreat, all the way up to a 3-bedroom home. No matter which home you choose, enjoy expansive living spaces, a fully equipped kitchen and more.

The Hawaiian Islands have a wide array of things for you to do and see on your next tropical trip. Set your sites on the beautiful beaches and fun you’ll only find on Maui and create an island getaway that’s truly unique and yours. The island and locale alone are great reasons to visit, but there is a lot more waiting for you to discover once you get here! 

Rich History 

The second-largest island in the state of Hawaii, it has a rich history that reaches back well before it joined the union. Modern Hawaiian history – including the monarchy – began in the mid-18th century when king of the island of Hawaii, Kamehameha I, invaded the island in 1790. Europeans brought change and preservation, including creating the 12-letter Hawaiian alphabet and writing down the previously orally transmitted history of the area. After years of royal rule, it became a U.S. territory in 1900 and the 50th state in 1959. 

A Welcoming Environment 

After the devastating wildfires that started in August of 2023 and burned for multiple days, many of Maui’s historic landmarks were lost. As the island and its residents work to recover and rebuild, we are welcoming visitors with open arms. Activities and attractions that remain open or have reopened are eager to host you and your loved ones, giving you a taste of Maui and Hawaiian culture you won’t want to miss. 

Beaches 

No matter how many times you have been or come back to Maui, you’ll always find yourself at the beach. There are many named beaches, but there are also several small, secluded sections of sand and water just moments from your rental. You’ll even find some of Hawaii’s iconic black sand beaches – those beaches touched by volcanic activity. While you may want to take a barefoot stroll, resist the urge at a black sand beach – the black absorbs heat faster and can cause burns. 

Festivals 

Celebrate Hawaiian culture, or a holiday. Maui celebrates important U.S. holidays like Memorial Day, 4th of July, and all the rest. There are also celebrations of Hawaiian and Maui history, including special dates like the banyan tree’s birthday, the Prince Kuhio Festival, surfing competitions, and more.  

Hawaiian Cowboys 

Cowboys aren’t just for the American Southwest. Hawaii has its own ranches and cowboys. The Upcountry Maui town of Makawao is home to ranches, horses, and the cowboys that run them – known as paniolo. Horseback-riding paniolo have been wrangling cattle in the upland fields since the late 19th century. It’s a completely different experience from the beautiful beaches and is a great day trip for your Maui itinerary. 

Volcanic Activity 

This isn’t the kind of activity that includes lava flow. Haleakala is a dormant volcano located in a national park that bears its name. Reaching 10,000 feet, you can watch the sun rise through a halo of clouds. After the sun rises, grab a bike and cruise over 35 miles of road down the volcano’s steep slopes. You’ll pass by volcanic rock formations as well as deep green vegetation specimens. Both activities will require a jacket for the cold air at the top! After you’ve experienced volcanoes on land, dive below the water for more. 

Snorkel A Volcanic Cone 

If you’re all about volcanoes, you can get a look at them from above the water and below the water on a trip to Maui. The island is just one of three volcanic atolls in the world! Molokini Crater is filled with a rainbow of coral, schools upon schools of tropical fish, and more. A snorkel trip to the area is a perfect way to experience the complex world below the crystal-clear waters surrounding the crater. 

Three Islands 

Maui is part of a three-island chain officially known as Maui Nui. The nearby islands of Lanai and Molokai join Maui as part of the island grouping. Sail from Maui to Lanai on a ferry ride or take to the skies on a 25-minute plane ride to Molokai – every moment filled with breathtaking views.  

Delicious Eats 

Hawaiian and Polynesian fare is a unique blend of flavors. Maui also has a variety of seafood restaurants, American, and everything in between. The island of Maui even boasts Top Chef-worthy cuisine! Sheldon Simeon owns several restaurants across the island, with cuisines that include Asian noodles, traditional Hawaiian home cooking, and more.

These are just a few reasons to make Maui your next stop for vacation relaxation. There are plenty more, with one of the top being a home away from home in a vacation rental provided by My Perfect Stays. Book a cozy studio-style unit for a solo or sweetheart Maui adventure, all the way up to a 3-bedroom home. No matter which home you choose, enjoy expansive living spaces, a fully equipped kitchen, stunning indoor and outdoor living, and more.

No matter what time of year you need a break, the Hawaiian Islands have a wide array of things for you to do and see. Set your sites on the beautiful beaches and fun you’ll find on Maui and create an island getaway that’s unique to you and your loved ones. The island alone is a reason to visit, but there are plenty more highlights, must-do, or must-see attractions and activities that will make the decision to visit Maui a no-brainer.

Weather

No matter what time of year you visit Maui you’ll experience sun and warmer temperatures. Winter highs are in the low 80s and lows in the mid 60s. Summer turns up the heat a little with highs in the high 80s and lows in the 70s. With less than an inch of rain on average in the wettest months, you can be rest assured to have good weather during your Maui adventure.

Culture

The Hawaiian Islands are a blend of Hawaiian, Polynesian, and other cultures. You can experience each on your visit. Attend a lu’au or visit the Maui Arts & Cultural Center. You’ll learn about area culture and customs or take in a show presented by various performers like the Hawai’i Youth Symphony, or nationally recognized artists like UB40, Old Dominion, and Wayne Newton.

Beaches

An island escape means time on the beach, and in Maui that activity is year-round. Spend plenty of time on the beaches of Maui while you lay out in the sun and sunbathe, get your exercise with a walk or run on the sand, or grab a beach blanket and pack a basket for a beach picnic.

Water Activities

In addition to the many beach activities on land that attracted you and your traveling companions to Maui, there are a myriad of fun water sports to add to your Maui itinerary, too. If you‘re looking for an adrenaline boost or feel the need for speed on the water, take off on a jet ski. For a unique and memorable water experience, learn to “hang 10” and take surfing or windsurfing lessons with certified instructors. Take a dip in the ocean or take some time to explore the underwater world on a SCUBA or snorkeling trip.

Road to Hana

It’s a road trip not to be missed on a visit to Maui. Pack up the rental car and go on a must-do sightseeing excursion on land. While the Road to Hana is “only” 64 miles, it’s full of hairpin turns, one-lane bridges, and an array of blind spots to negotiate. You may set out on the journey thinking the 25-mile-an-hour speed limit is a bit slow, but you’ll be thankful for it as you negotiate your way through the twists and turns. The road to Hana isn’t just driving! Pull off to the side with the many other vehicles and hike to beautiful waterfalls, lava tubes and rocks, black sand beaches, and historic sites that include Charles Lindbergh’s grave site.

Brave the road on your own and make your own stops or join a tour with a knowledgeable guide who will take you to many of the best landmarks and hiking spots along the way, meaning you won’t miss a thing. However you navigate the famous Maui path, make sure to pack plenty of drinks, snacks, and your camera.

Wildlife Watching

Charter a boat that seeks out some of Hawaii’s sea life. Several charters in the marinas of Maui will take you out in search of dolphins, whales, and other ocean life. Bring your camera for pictures of whales breaching, or dolphins coming up for a little air. You might even win their companionship as they race alongside the vessel.
