The best time to visit Maui is anytime. Maui is an all-season destination with long hours of sunshine and mild year-round balmy temperatures averaging 25°C (77°F) at sea level; higher ‘upcountry’ elevations are cooler with sometime misty conditions.
For guaranteed dry and sunny conditions (and to avoid summer crowds) visit Maui from May through June and from October through November, when the average daytime temperature is 29°C (84°F).
The summer months of July and August are hot peaking around 30°C (86°F).
The rainy season lasts from December to March, when you can expect slightly cooler temperatures and heavy rain in the mountains and short showers elsewhere. Winter has an average daytime temperature of 26°C (79°F).
Note: Hawaii is full of microclimates, given its many valleys, mountain peaks and coastal plains. The leeward sides (west and south coasts) of each island are usually hot and dry, while the windward sides (east and north coasts) are generally cooler and wet.
High season: From mid-December through March or mid-April – expect to pay top dollar for accommodations, car rentals, and airfare.
Low season: For the best hotel rates and airfares, visit in spring from mid-April to mid-June and during autumn from September to mid-December.
Note: The last week in April and early May coincide with three major Japanese holidays.
