Maui is a place with a variety of activities on and off the water. Hiking, biking, tours, and visiting beaches are accessible along with surfing, snorkeling, boating, and other outdoor happenings. You can enjoy all these and more when you visit because of one factor: our beautiful Maui weather.
Maui’s year-round warm weather is one of the Valley Isle’s favorite appeals. Travel site Frommer says, “Most visitors don’t come to Maui when the weather’s best on the island; rather, they come when the weather is at its worst everywhere else.” People who come from colder and snowbound states are happy when they can warm up and feel their feet again.
Believe it or not, snow does come to Maui occasionally but only in areas over 10,000 feet. While you can sometimes find snow on top of Mount Haleakala from a Kona low storm, the lower areas of Maui don’t ever have snow. Maui residents and its visitors have to settle for seeing snow on TV.
Maui’s Two Seasons
While the Mainland has four seasons, Maui only has two. Both give us roughly the same temperatures year-round. Beach areas in “summer” see highs of about 85F, while “winter” temperatures average about 78F. Nights are about ten degrees lower, but a light wrap is always good to have if you’re heading into the mountain areas.
The “dry” season runs from April through September, and the “rainy” season runs from November through March during the Mainland’s winter months. There is usually rain somewhere every day, but not more than three days of rain in any one area on occasion. Rain is usually sporadic and doesn’t last long.
We’ve mentioned Maui’s microclimates many times. That means that while the temperatures on the island are warm, some areas are hot and dry while other areas are like Hana have greater moisture and rain.
You may notice when staying at the Hana Kai Maui resort condos, you won’t need air conditioning. This is because of trade winds. There is wind nearly all the time in Maui. They blow about 80% of the year with a mild average speed of between 12 to 18 mph. Not only do they keep things pleasantly cool, they are a reliable source of wind for activities like recreational sailing.
Sailors have known for years the predictable east-to-west winds were always there and could rely on them to propel their ships to the beautiful Hawaiian Islands.
These circular winds are a phenomenon that only happens here in Hawaii. Warm air travels up from the southwest above the Islands to the Northeast, where it is colder, then returns as cooler air close to the ground and the shoreline. Maui afternoons tend to have slightly gusty and cool winds. Hawaii’s trade winds bring a constant flow of fresh temperate air naturally cooling the islands and providing clean air.
Weather Makes Maui A Great Place To Visit Anytime
What’s the result of beautiful weather all year round? You can plan a visit and count on good weather to enhance your vacation. The days will be pleasant and sunny for daytime activities such as swimming, beach lounging, and tourist excursions. Nights will be comfortable for sleeping and sunsets will be gorgeous for viewing.
Summer months can be our busiest vacation month as lots of folks travel especially with children out of school during these months. If you’d prefer a less crowded Maui vacation, the “shoulder seasons” of spring and fall are ideal. But no matter when you get to visit Maui, you can generally rely on consistent beautiful Maui weather throughout the year.
