Every year, more and more travelers in cold weather environments leave their homes for a warm escape. Maui is a popular destination year-round but come winter, tourism picks up as vacationers seek a slice of paradise. Maui is a beautiful place to visit in winter; with the island’s pleasant climate and abundance of activities and attractions, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
If you are considering visiting Maui in the winter, Parrish Maui has you covered. Not only do we offer a wide variety of Maui vacation rentals that can act as the perfect home away from home, but we also offer travelers intimate knowledge of the island. Today, we are covering the top five reasons to visit Maui in winter.
1. Beautiful Weather
For many people in the states, the wintertime means miserable cold and snow. In fact, many struggle with seasonal affective disorder due to a lack of sunshine. On Maui, you can enjoy warm temperatures and plenty of sun in the winter. In the winter months, Maui enjoys average daily high temperatures of 81 degrees, creating a pleasant climate for all sorts of activities.
2. Whale Watching
December 15 is the official start of whale season on Maui. During whale season, you will have a chance to get up close and personal with one of the world’s most majestic creatures, the humpback whale. When you stay with Parrish Maui, you might not even have to leave your vacation rental for a great view of the whales; all of our Kapalua Bay Villas and some of our Kapalua Ridge Villas offer great views for whale watching.
3. Phenomenal Surfing
Surfing is the individual state sport of Hawaii, and wintertime is considered the best time to experience it. During the winter, heavy north swells lead to perfect conditions for catching a big wave. If you are new to surfing, we recommend sticking to the south side of the island, where the conditions are milder.
4. Winter on the Beach
Maui is home to some of the best beaches in the world, and when you are used to the cold, there is nothing better than enjoying a beach day in the winter. Whether you want a relaxing beach stroll or to catch waves, Maui has a beach perfect for your ideal beach day. You can learn more about Maui’s different beaches in our beach guide.
5. World-Class Golf
If you are an avid golfer, you are probably aware that Hawaii is a fantastic place to play a round. While the courses you play back home are likely closed, Maui’s courses are just as beautiful during the winter, offering stunning views of the Pacific. The Kapalua Bay Course and the Plantation Course are two of the best courses on the island, and our Kapalua Golf Villas are located right along the fairway of the Bay Course.
