When to Go to Maui

Maui is blessed with great weather through most of the year. The dry season lasts from April to October, and the rainy season from November to March, though it rarely rains more than two or three days in a row. The temperatures stay around the 70s and 80s year-round. The best time of year to visit Maui is in the shoulder season, when the weather is best, and the tourist influx is low. Airfare and hotel rates are lowest between Labor Day and Thanksgiving. Peak season runs between December and March, as well as the summer when many families visit Hawaii.
