Ever heard of the saying, “Maui is where people are sent when heaven is overbooked”. It sure feels like it when you can sink your toes in the warm golden sand, capture the stunning panoramic views and take in the warm “Aloha” vibe of Maui island.
Whether you are visiting Maui for the first time or are an island adventure returnee it’s always good to know what time of year is best to visit the island.
You’ll be pleased to know that Maui’s warm tropical climate is fairly consistent year round with daytime highs in the mid-80’s to mid-70’s during the summer and winter respectively. Year round the weather is typically great for visitors. The majority of rainfall that Maui receives is usually in the winter months, from November through April. Rain showers like this are short and are quickly followed by warm sunshine and, if you’re lucky, beautiful rainbows. Rainbows are always said to be a sign of good luck in the islands, meaning you’ll return one day if you spot one. For more information about Maui’s weather be sure to check out Maui weather.
