It doesn’t take long to get tired of driving through winter snowstorms and hibernating from cold weather. That is why so many people living in colder climates seek out warm destinations during the winter months. If you are looking to escape the cold, there is no better place for a warm winter vacation than Maui. On Maui, the sun warms the sand year-round, vegetation is lush on the hiking trails, and thousands of humpback whales migrate to our waters. So, if you want a break from snowy days, stay with us at Epic Realty and discover everything our beautiful island has to offer this winter.
The whale watching season on Maui lasts between November-May, but the peak runs between February and March. Thousands of humpback whales migrate from Alaska to Maui’s warm and shallow waters. You can spot whales from the beach, but tours are the best way to get up close and personal with these fascinating marine mammals.
Choose one of the tours with Teralani and experience the humpback whales in their natural habitat with a Marine Naturalist. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about these gentle giants as you listen to their enchanting song with the underwater hydrophone. Hula Girl offers a sunset whale watch tour where you can learn about these marine mammals accompanied by picturesque views and a delicious dinner. Whale watching is one of our favorite ways to kick off a warm winter vacation on Maui.
West Maui Beaches
No vacation to Maui is complete without spending time on the beach. The West Maui beaches remain beautiful and warm year-round. Ka’anapali Beach is an excellent spot for lounging in the sand, swimming, or snorkeling. If you are traveling on a family vacation, then Baby Beach is a perfect choice if you want calm waters and a laid back atmosphere. Winter also brings some of the best surfing on Maui, so if you love to surf or want to try this water sport for the first time head to Launiupoko Beach Park.
Since the average winter temperatures on Maui are around 75 degrees, you can explore the outdoors year-round here. The closest you will get to winter scenery is the light dusting of snow on the summit of Haleakala. But, most of the time, Haleakala National Park remains open for exploration with hiking, horseback riding, ziplining, and helicopter tours.
Visiting the waterfalls along Hana Highway is a popular activity year-round. Since we are prone to flooding during the winter months, it is best to visit the waterfalls with experienced guides who know the area.
