By | Hawaiian Islands, Maui | 35 Comments

*** On August 8, 2023  wildfires on Maui devastated the West Maui town of Lahaina and the surrounding area. Our deepest condolences go out to all of the people, families, and businesses affected by this terrible event. Unfortunately, Lahaina Town and Lahaina Harbor will be off-limits for some time, but small businesses, activity companies, and restaurants in other parts of Maui will need the help of visitors to stay afloat. Please visit, donate, volunteer, and support local whenever possible.

For Maui activities in other areas, see Maalaea, Kihei, Kaanapali, Haleakala, Hana, Paia, and Wailea.
