The pandemic has changed how we do everything, and nothing has been affected more than how we travel. There are many different things to expect when traveling to Maui during a pandemic. Before you depart for Maui, a negative COVID test is mandatory if you don’t want to quarantine for 10 days. You should make reservations for dining, car rentals, and lodging well before your trip. And, thankfully, Epic Realty offers a variety of resorts and rentals throughout the island.
If you’re looking to visit Maui this summer, make sure to have proof of a negative COVID test before departure. You must do the COVID test within 72 hours before the flight. For full details and requirements, please visit Hawaii Tourism Authority.
Make Reservations in Advance
Travelers are flocking to Hawaii. You should expect delays with COVID regulations still in full effect. Thus, it is essential to make reservations well in advance while planning your trip to Maui. Restaurants continue to be at 50 percent capacity or more, so make sure to check out the OpenTable app for advanced reservations. We recommend using the app, Turo, to book a rental car. If you are looking to enjoy local food and culture, make a reservation to attend a luau. Reservations are filling up everywhere in Maui, so make sure to book your trip soon!
If you’re worried about the safety of indoor activities during the pandemic, Maui has outdoor activities for safe social distancing. While you’re staying at your vacation rental at Epic Realty, head down to the S Turns Beach for turtle watching. Napili and Kapalua Bay are also easy options since they are accessible by bus. Additionally, Maui has endless hiking opportunities. For a historical, more leisurely hike, try spending a day at Iao Valley State Park or see Maui’s highest peak and enjoy volcanic landscapes at Haleakala National Park.
