Rainbow over the ocean


Maui continues efforts to recover after the devastating wildfires that destroyed Lahaina and surrounding areas. If you are preparing for an upcoming trip to Maui, we ask that you extend extra care and compassion to the community due to the recent tragedy. Many activity vendors, restaurants and other attractions in West Maui were either lost entirely or have not resumed operations. Certain areas within the region, including Lahaina Town, remain off-limits. The Maui Now website has a listing of What's Open on Maui to help plan your stay.
