Got The “Pandemic Lockdown Blues”? Restart Your Life With A Trip To Maui

Everyone will remember 2020 as the year that we all stayed home, camped in, and wore masks. Kitchen tables, garages, closets, spare bedrooms, and other areas became makeshift “home offices.” Video calls became the norm as we learned social distancing and working from home while shopping online for nearly everything.

Got The "Pandemic Lockdown Blues"? Restart Your Life With A Trip To Maui

Long-term “staycations” have turned some folks into learners, teachers and workout fiends, while others have perfected the art of binge watching.

If “cabin fever” has you longing for a break, a visit to Maui can change everything. Or at least change your views for a while.

Maui Is Reopening

From its first report of a resident with COVID-19 on March 6, 2020, Maui and all of Hawaii began its statewide quarantine lockdown almost immediately. Shortly thereafter, Governor David Ige instituted a 14-day self-quarantine for visitors as well as residents who were return to the Islands after a trip away.

Within weeks, vacations and other large-scale activities were cancelled, such as the winter and spring tournaments by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). This included the Division I men’s and women’s basketball tournaments that affected colleges and universities throughout the US. Air traffic to the Islands decreased by as much as 98%.

Hawaii has had one of the lowest rates of infections in the US, and new rates of infection have decreased. On May 7, 2020, Governor Ige began the first of four phases of re-opening Hawaii. Under Beyond Recovery: Reopening Hawaiʻi, businesses and tourism begin reopening to Islanders first, and then tourism from the Mainland. Social distancing and other safety procedures are in use throughout the state.

Hana Kai Maui has resumed receiving visitors as of July 1, 2020, and we look forward to seeing you.

Why Maui Is The Best Place For A Recharge

Maui has the best beaches in the world. Need we say more? Well, there is more than the beach, but there’s a reason beach lovers worldwide specifically visit Maui. Whether swimming, snorkeling, or just soaking up sun, Maui’s beaches are a great way to relax, unwind, and experience life on Island time.

We’ve talked about The Road To Hana many times, but it’s really one of the reasons people come to Maui. Whether you rent a car and drive it yourself, or hire an experienced driver, it’s a road trip like no other. Along the way, you can make a stop at the Seven Sacred Pools.

One the west coast of Maui is the city of Lahaina, a former very busy whaling town and state capital, it’s now a bustling city with restaurants, art galleries, and a walking tour on the Lahaina Historic Trail. You can learn a new skill at Moana Glass, visit the huge Banyan Tree, and enjoy Lahaina’s Second Friday Block Party. (Note: at this writing, these are currently cancelled.)

Like snorkeling, scuba? Molokini is the small, crescent shaped inlet that’s uninhabited and boasts clear water and protection from the ocean currents. It’s also the best place to see Maui’s diverse underwater animal kingdom.

Are you dreaming about your trip yet?

With so much to see and experience in Maui, you might not want to go home. And that’s OK, too. You wouldn’t be the first to abandon your current life and live a new one in Maui. You might just meet a well-known resident or two, and find yourself having a conversation with them.
