When to Go

Of course, your family will enjoy going to Maui anytime of the year although there are advantages to going in specific times.

Peak tourist season is from December to September, with a mix of singles, groups and families enjoying the sun, sand, sea and surf.

The low season, which runs from October to November, is best for families who desire smaller crowds, lower costs and milder weather.

Where to Go

Maui is the second largest of the Hawaiian Islands. As such, there are many places your family can visit, enjoy the scenery and absorb the local culture.

However, there are major tourist attractions that are musts on your Maui family vacation itinerary.

You will be amazed at the spectacular scenery of spectacular mountains, black sand beaches, waterfalls and native flora and fauna.

And of course, don't forget to see the Seven Sacred Pools!

Second, enter the Haleaka National Park and the dormant Haleaka volcano.

Third, get your shop on at the Lahaina With its entire street full of restaurants and shops, you have many opportunities to take home souvenirs of your vacation.

Or better yet, go to the wharf and book a serene sunset cruise or an exciting whale watching journey on your Maui family vacation.

Fourth, savor the beauty and serenity of the Wailea Beach.

With its unique intermingling of fine sand with black lava formation, you will enjoy various beach activities ranging from swimming to snorkeling for a great family beach vacation in Maui.
