Budget-Friendly Activities on Maui

Free Hula Shows at the Lahaina Cannery Mall

Free Hula Shows at the Lahaina Cannery Mall

Luaus are great for the endless food, but if watching hula is all you’re after, the free hula shows at the Lahaina Cannery can save you the price of a luau. There are regular shows at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays; on weekends, the keiki show off their hula talents at 1 p.m.

Wailea on Wednesdays

Wailea on Wednesdays

Sure, the Shops at Wailea have tony boutiques high prices—but every Wednesday evening starting at 6:30 p.m. this swanky shopping complex become a budget bonanza. You can enjoy free concerts from Hawaiian musicians, chat with visiting artists, and dine on discounted dinner specials while listening to the live entertainment.

Lahaina Hawaiian Music Series Concerts

Lahaina Hawaiian Music Series Concerts

On the last Thursday of each month, the lawn in front of the Baldwin Home Museum hosts free Hawaiian concerts. These “talk story” gatherings feature local musicians who usually command high fees, and the community atmosphere on famous Front Street helps celebrate Lahaina’s heritage. The shows start at 6 p.m., but you’ll want to arrive early to get a spot on the lawn.

Afternoon Golf

While morning green fees at Maui’s best courses can cost upwards of $300, booking a tee time after 12 p.m. can cut the rates in half. At Maui Nui and Pukalani courses, afternoon fees are as low as $35—and if the weather forecast calls for light winds, you’ll play in exactly the same conditions as those who paid double to tee off in the morning.

Explore Maui’s Northwestern Coast

Don’t have the time to drive to Hana? The 9-mile stretch to the north of Kapalua is one of the island’s best drives. Hike the Kapalua Coastal Trail or trek to Honolua Valley, and visit the thundering coastal waterspout at Nakalele Blowhole. This drive has some of the island’s best views, and all you pay for is gas.
