Best of West Maui

While there’s never a bad time to visit Maui, February is one of the best months of the year to visit Maui. The weather is perfect, the winds are typically calm, and there are tons of activities. Temperatures average around 78 and the ocean temperatures are around 75… it doesn’t get much better than this.

This time of the year is typically crowded as people from all over the cold regions flock to the perfect weather conditions. Be aware that traffic can be more congested and restaurants can be more crowded. Plan ahead or simply stay at your West Maui vacation rental resort. But if you do want to leave, here are a few of the best things to do in February in Maui.

Whale Watching

Whale watching is in its prime in February in Maui, and West Maui specifically is one of the best places to view humpback whales. Head out on a whale-watching excursion and you’ll almost certainly see these magnificent creatures in action.

On Saturday, February 8, the Annual Parade of Whales and World Whale Day brings together locals and travelers alike for a day of live music, local art, entertainment, and kid-friendly activities. The parade takes place on South Kihei Road and the festival is at Kalama Park in Kihei. Celebrate the Whale Day Festival at Kalama Park from 10 a.m. - 3 p.m. to enjoy free interactive displays, hula performances, and a Keiki carnival.

Valentine’s Day

Mahana Resort rental

Valentine’s Day is perfect on Maui. You can easily enjoy a dinner cooked in your rental and a bottle of wine sitting on your oceanfront patio. If you’d prefer to enjoy dinner out, there are tons of great restaurants in Maui.

Valentine’s Day also happens to land on Lahina’s Second Friday festival. Head over to Front Street in Lahaina for live music, food deals at local restaurants, and more. Art galleries will have their doors open, offering wine and pupus. This is a great way to experience the town and local culture.
