The holiday season is the perfect time to travel to Maui. Leave the snow and cold behind for a tropical paradise filled with twinkle lights, beautiful weather, cultural fun, and more. At Allsave Car Rental Maui, we have the perfect vehicle to make your Hawaiian holiday one to remember. While there are plenty of activities to enjoy on Maui over the holidays, we’ve chosen four that you won’t want to miss.
1. Lighting of the Banyan Tree
The banyan tree is one of the largest trees in the United States. The banyan tree in Lahaina is a behemoth, literally filling an entire city block. Every year, locals wrap the 60 foot trunk and roots in thousands of white twinkle lights. Whether you are out for some family fun in Lahaina or looking for a little romance, you absolutely must stop to see the banyan tree!
Holiday shopping on Maui is an extra special experience. Craftsmen and local vendors set up shops and markets all over the island. The Shops at Wailea are a must-see, with over 70 boutiques, restaurants, and galleries. The Shops also hold daily events, including ukulele lessons, daily visits from Santa, Polynesian shows, the Festival of Harps, and more.
3. Attend a Luau
No matter when you visit Maui, attending a luau should be at the top of your to-do list. During the holidays, family-friendly luaus take place all over the island. Visits from Santa are popular on many of the beaches, delighting the children as he arrives on a canoe to deliver treats. Most luaus serve a buffet with traditional Hawaiian cuisine, and are coupled with drinks and local entertainment.
4. Go Whale Watching
Seeing a majestic humpback whale cresting the waters is a sight you will never forget. Maui’s whale watching season runs from November to May. During this season, thousands of North Pacific humpback whales migrate into Hawaiian waters, making the holidays the perfect time to schedule a guided boat tour.
