Time of Year to Fly

While a Hawaiian getaway may sound like a summer vacation, the best time to purchase cheap airline tickets to Maui is for a vacation in August through November and during the first two weeks of December. Beach crowds tend to disappear during the fall/early winter and cheap hotels in the area are easier to book. Mana Kai, Maui, and Hale Kamaole are Kihei hotels that offer affordable rates.

Area Events/Attractions

Kihei has a variety of activities for any traveler who likes to swim, snorkel, surf, or sunbathe. Visit the Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary for whale watching during the winter and monk seals, sea turtles, and fish any time of year. Take a beginning surfing lesson at the Kamaole beaches, enroll in introductory scuba diving at Maui Dreams Dive Co., or rent a snorkel and mask at Snorkel Bob’s and explore Kihei’s waters on your own. Walk the sands of Keawakapu Beach, where many Hollywood celebrities own homes.

For inexpensive meals in the area, check out Coconut’s Fish Café for fish tacos, Ululani’s Shave Ice, and Pita Paradise for vegan-friendly meals. Finish off the day watching the sun set over the ocean while you enjoy drinks and pupus (appetizers) at 5 Palms.

Kihei is also just six miles from Wailea, an upscale community that offers high-end shopping, restaurants, golf courses, and some of the most luxurious resorts in the world.
