Why You Should Visit Maui in the Fall

Maui Beach Fall

Maui is the perfect destination at any time of the year, however, the fall months provides guests with a unique and lovely experience that we highly recommend. If you're planning on vacationing in Maui in the fall months (September, October, and November), here's what you need to know:

Weather in Maui During the Fall Season

Some might say that the best time to visit Maui is during the fall season! Because Hawaii is located in the tropics, the islands don't experience much of a change in seasons, which is a good thing for those who are considering a stay during the fall months!

September, October, and November bring about warm weather with temperatures reaching in the 80s, so you can still enjoy a relaxing day at the beach or hiking trails without breaking too much of a sweat. And of all the islands, Maui is the one to receive the least amount of rainfall. We still recommend packing a raincoat though in case it does rain!

Things to Do in Maui in the Fall (September - November)

The fall season brings no shortage of events here in Maui. You'll find plenty of things to do to entertain the family whether it's local markets, outdoor activities, annual events, live music, and more! Here's some of the island's major events during this period:

Festivals of Aloha

Festivals of Aloha is an almost two months long celebration in honor of the Native Hawaiian culture and traditions including dance, food, mele, fishing, lei making, and more.

Made in Maui County Festival

If you're visiting Maui in early November, stop by the 9th Annual Made in Maui County Festival on November 4th and 5th, 2022. This popular festival showcases over a hundred vendors who sell locally made goods. You can expect a variety of vendors selling products such as ceramics, candles, jewelry, baked goods, tea, and much more. Made in Maui is a great way to show appreciation and support for local shops and businesses in the area.

Halloween on Maui is a big deal and is dubbed Mardi Gras of the Pacific! Thousands gather in Lahaina for spooky and fun festivities for all. Children (keiki) can participate in a Halloween Costume Parade and adults can enter in an adult costume contest as well. There is live music and lots of fun to be had.
