Plan a beautiful spring visit to Maui and Maui Beach Resort!


Maui is one of the most diverse of all the Hawaiian islands. You can drive, in less than an hour, from an area that is the second wettest place on earth to an area where the annual rainfall is 16 inches per year. With this kind of variety, Maui is an island that never gets old.

There is always something beautiful to see and do here no matter what time of year you visit, but there are a few times during the year when the weather is gorgeous but not too hot, and the crowds are thin. Those who live on the island know that there is something special about springtime in Maui! That’s why this is great time to year to book a visit to Maui Beach Resort, a premier vacation ownership property in South Maui.


The incredible diversity of Maui’s mountains and ocean have left us with 17 out of approximately 20 known climate zones on earth. Which means just about any kind of weather can happen in Maui depending on where you are. Hawaii sits pretty much at the boundary between tropical and subtropical regions on
the planet which is why the weather is ideal year around. Yes, we have seasons, but they are a little different than the rest of the U.S. First of all there are only two seasons – wet and dry. The transition between the two is what we call spring.

In this transition, you will see everything from rain to sunshine to calm seas to trade wind swells…all in one day! It’s what makes Maui such an interesting destination and one of the most popular islands in the state.


Maui’s weather has been a bit out of the ordinary in the last few years. Summer storms have increased causing some flooding and high humidity. The fall and winter months have been somewhat stormy too with occasional flooding. The southerly (Kona) rainstorms in the winter can also bring haze from the Big Island volcano, known as Vog (volcanic fog). This was an issue for some during the Kilauea eruption in the summer of 2018 but currently the volcano is quiet with no vog since.

Starting in March, the trade winds become a little more consistent. These northwesterly winds can blow 15 to 30 mph and bringing rain showers to north facing shores. These “trade showers” can result in light misty showers blowing over and around the mountains to the south and west facing shores. Rainbows often develop everywhere. You’ll see them upcountry where the moist trade winds hit the slopes of Haleakala but the shoreline and beaches sometimes have double rainbows which add a magical beauty to this time of year.


The flowers in Maui are endless. The beautiful year round weather keeps the perennial plants growing throughout the winter months of Kua (Wet Season) until they go off in the spring and summer months. Roses, lilies and hydrangea are just a few. It is also a time for flowering trees to produce amazing arrays of color. The Plumeria trees start to fill just in time for Lei Day which is May 1st (May Day). It’s really one of the most colorful times to visit Maui!


Another spring ritual in Maui is the Jacaranda trees blooming upcountry. These trees could have arrived as early as the late 1800’s but the main reason they exist along so many roads in Makawao, Kula and Keokea is because they were planted there by the Territorial Highway Division in the mid 1950’s by the request of Maui’s first Mayor – Elmer Cravalho.

Jacaranda trees may be one of the most prolifically planted ornamental trees in the world. The trees grow to between 16ft and 50ft high, but I’ve seen larger ones than this in upcountry Maui. Blueish purple flowers cover the entire tree, and the ground below them as the flowers drop they creating pools of purple beneath the trees as they bloom for over a month in late spring. They do well in tropical and subtropical climates and can also be seen in southern California and Florida.

The first time the name Jacaranda was introduced was an encyclopedia entry in 1753. Since then it has spread around the world from its native origins of Argentina and Bolivia. It has also been seen growing wild in Cuba, Jamaica and the Bahamas. It has been planted widely in Asia and is common in South Africa, Zimbabwe, and Australia.



Maui’s first mayor, Elmer Cravalho, is of Portuguese descendent who worked in the Hawaii Territorial House of Representatives starting in 1955, four years before Hawaii became a state. Much of Maui’s development can be traced to Cravalho, including a waterline from Wailuku to Kihei which enabled the development of the town, especially Wailea, into the world-class resort area it is today.

As a sixth-grade school teacher at Haiku Elementary Elmer got to know the local families and eventually began working for the Maui Board of Water Supply. As the Territorial Representative he was able to persuade the Highway Division to plant the beautiful Jacaranda trees you see today along the upcountry highways.

He began his political career in 1955 and was there for Hawaii’s admission into Statehood in 1959. As mayor from 1969 to 1979 Elmer began to develop and promote Maui as a vacation destination. He was very successful at this and during the 70’s the Lahaina Sun Times called him the most effective Mayor in Hawaii. He is still alive today so please give a silent “Mahalo” to him whenever you see these incredibly colorful Jacarandas as you cruise around upcountry!


There are two main highways in Kula. One is known as Crater Road or highway 337 and goes all the way to the summit. The other is known as Lower Kula Road or highway 37 and traverses the slope to the south towards the winery and Hana. Both have Jacaranda trees planted at various spots and elevations along these highways.

Celebration of the Arts: For those interested in delving deeper into Hawaiian ways, this wonderful annual event in Kapalua provides an opportunity for locals and visitors to experience authentic Hawaiian culture through demonstrations of hula and chant, hands-on workshops in Hawaiian arts, and genuine one-on-one interaction with local cultural leaders and artists.

2019 Date: April 19-20 Kapalua (West Maui)


May Day is Lei Day: The first of May (traditionally May Day) is celebrated as “Lei Day” in the islands, honoring Hawaii’s treasured tradition of making, giving, and wearing lei. If you’re in Maui on May 1, stop by the Lei Day Heritage Festival at the Bailey House Museum (Hale Ho’ike’ike) in Wailuku. This free community festival includes a lei contest and displays, Hawaiian craft demonstrations and exhibits, and Hawaiian song and dance.

2019 Date: May 1 Wailuku (Central Maui)

Maui Brewers Festival: Featuring more than 40 breweries–craft beers from the mainland and Hawaii—food booths, door prizes, a home brew competition, and live music. This event takes place on the lawn at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.

2019 Date: May 18 Wailuku (Central Maui)

Restaurant Week Wailea: Foodie alert! Twice a year, in spring and fall, Wailea’s fabulous, world-renowned restaurants celebrate Restaurant Week Wailea with three course, pre-fixe menus for just $29, $39, $49 or $59 per person. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience these acclaimed restaurants at a great value and support a worthwhile cause while you’re munching–a portion of the proceeds is donated to the Maui Food Bank. One of the yummiest things to do on Maui in spring!




Celebrate the Banyan Tree’s birthday on your Maui visit !


Lahainatown will celebrate the 146th birthday of its famous Banyan Tree with a giant party on April 20 at Banyan Tree Park. Festivities will include live music, magic, artists, hands-on art activities for children, a farmer’s market, and of course a birthday cake. Admission is free.

Lahaina’s most conspicuous landmark, the Banyan Tree (Ficus benghalensis) was planted on April 24, 1873 by sheriff William Owen Smith to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the first missionaries. Imported from India, the tree was only eight feet high when it was planted. Today it stands 60 feet in height and has a crown spread of more than 225 feet. Its dozen main trunks spread over two-thirds of an acre.

The Banyan Tree’s unique, massive beauty continues to draw people. If visiting at night, you will notice that there is something so enchanting about it. Being all lit up with little white twinkling ‘fairy lights’ makes for a magical, almost dreamy ambiance. And, what’s even more amazing is when the moon is at just the right angle, sometimes it’s light gets reflected off of the water from just behind the courthouse and the reflection of that fills the air.

The wide-ranging birthday activities are worthy of the Banyon Tree itself. There will be fun and games for the kids, a farmer’s market offering baked goods, fruits, flowers and vegetables, live music and Maui artists selling their wares all day long.

Banyan Tree Park is located at the corner of Front and Canal Streets, near the Lahaina Courthouse building. If your visit to Maui Beach Resort coincides with the Banyan Tree birthday, you should definitely make it a point to join the celebration.

West Maui’s popular Ka’anapali Beach in Lahaina.

With miles of white sand and crystal clear water, it’s no wonder that Maui’s Ka’anapali Beach is a perennial favorite of visitors the world over. The Lahaina beach, named America’s best in 2003, ranked highly once again in TripAdvisor’s 2019 Travelers Choice Awards, finishing as the second most popular beach in the United States and 14th in the world. It is located in Lahaina just a short drive from Maui Beach Resort.

One of Ka’anapali Beach’s most famous attractions is the daily cliff diving ceremony off the beach’s northernmost cliffs known as Puu Kekaa, or Black Rock. Held every evening at sunset, a cliff diver lights the torches along the cliff, diving off Black Rock in a reenactment of a feat by Maui’s revered King Kahekili. Ka’anapali Beach also offers some of Maui’s best snorkeling opportunities.

Wrote one TripAdvsior reviewer: “It is one of the most beautiful and cleanest beaches I’ve visited. The sight of whales jumping in the distance becomes almost commonplace. Beautiful sunsets, and there is an awesome beach walk with restaurants and resorts along the way. It has a relaxing vibe and isn’t very crowded.”

Ka’anapali Beach deserves all the plaudits it receives, but it certainly isn’t Maui’s only great beach. The following West and South Maui beaches all have much to recommend them. Be sure to visit your favorite on your next visit to Maui Beach Resort!




D.T. Flemings Beach Park

Flemings is in upper west Maui, north of Kapalua. It is a public beach park where people swim, body surf and surf regularly. Flemings has a good-sized parking lot and a large beach to lounge on.

Kapalua Beach

One of the most beautiful beaches in Maui, Kapalau Beach is the kind of tropical perfection you expect from Maui. It has great swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving

Launiupoko Beach Park

Launiupoko Beach is fun for longboard surfers and picnics. With two parking areas, this park is easily accessed on the way to Lahaina right off of the road. This is a great park for families with small children because of a natural pool formed and surrounded by a lava rock wall.

Napili Bay

Napili Bay is one of the most beautiful bays in Maui. It has a steep incline into the water with unblemished white sand. The water is beautiful and bright blue. Snorkeling is good on both sides of the bay.


Makena Beach

Also known as Big Beach, Makena has a mile of perfect orange and white sand, dramatic landscapes and water that’s brilliant blue and green. There is a little reef that makes the sand bottom shine up through the water to give it that tropical brightness. Skim boarding, body boarding, and body surfing are all very popular here for this reason.

Little Beach

This beach is beautiful and as perfect as can be. On Sundays at sunset everyone celebrates by swimming and cheering as a large drum circle beats away. Once it gets dark people gather and begin to dance around a circle of fire. You’ll sometimes find professional fire twirlers with more than one ball of fire and fancy flaming outfits.

Kama’ole Beach Parks 1, 2, 3

The three Kams are great beaches to enjoy with friends. The first and most Northern Kama’ole Beach is the largest. The second is small but can offer fun waves for body surfing if the swell cooperates. The third Kamaole Beach is the favorite for South Maui locals and has a large grass park.

Charley Young Beach

On the north end of Kamaole Beach, you’ll find a large beach known as Charley Young. With great views and perfect sand, Charley Young Beach is a great spot to spend with family and friends. This is a swimming beach that offers visitors the best beach Kihei has to offer. Please note: no lifeguards on duty.

Maluaka Beach

Maluaka is one of Makena’s gems. This beach is beautiful and has great snorkeling and swimming. Areas around here are often referred to as Turtle Town Maui. This is the closest departure point if you want to visit the famous Molokini Crater.

It’s never too soon to book a summer visit to Maui Beach!


Believe it or not but June will be here before you know it. Three short months, in fact, if our finger counting is correct. We mention this because the arrival of June brings with it two of the most popular annual events on Maui, giving you yet another great reason to book a visit to Maui Beach. This year the proximity of the Kapalua Wine and Food Food Festival to the Maui Film Festival, scheduled less than a week apart, makes a trip to your favorite island even more irresistible than usual. Even better, you can easily attend both!


JUNE 6-9

Treat your taste buds to an event they’ll never forget by joining oenophiles, gourmands and enthusiasts of the good life as they reconvene on the beautiful shores of Maui in celebration of the 38th annual Kapalua Wine & Food Festival. Along with host and master sommelier Michael Jordan, renowned winemakers, star-power celebrity chefs and Maui’s own contingent of culinary stars will lead panels and introduce guests to world-class varietals and fine cuisine.

JUNE 12-16

Along with the films, star tributes, and filmmaker panels, the Maui Film Festival at the Wailea Golf Resort is about having a good time, Wailea-style. Aloha wear is the dress code at culinary feasts and star-studded parties that take place throughout the resort. The Celestial Cinema at Wailea is located at the Wailea Golf & Emerald Golf Course, on the amphitheater-like slopes of the golf-course driving range.

Its commanding, 50-foot-wide screen is dwarfed by Maui’s majestic volcano, Haleakala, behind it. In the other direction, Wailea’s hillsides roll seductively down to the beach. Its gentle, natural amphitheater slowly fills with thousands of blankets, beach chairs, and bodies, forming an impromptu jigsaw puzzle on the grass. The Dolby Sound System is crisp and clear as night descends. And then the stars come out.

Three other popular events, the Taste of Summer, the Taste of Chocolate and the Taste of Wailea, are also part of the Maui Film Festival.
