Visiting Maui in October: What to Expect

Unbelievable Weather

As the last month of the dry season, Maui in October presents visitors with one of the last opportunities to experience warm weather and clear skies. The temperature stays pretty consistent throughout the year, with lows around 60 degrees and highs around 77, but the island has two very distinct seasons in terms of weather. The dry period runs from April until October, and the wet season runs from November until March. October is your last chance to catch a piece of the peak season!

Exciting Events

With the holiday season on the horizon, October is the first month of the year that brings some of the island’s most exciting events to life. If you’re trying to figure out what to do on Maui in October, you’ll have no trouble finding incredible ways to fill your time. For instance, Halloween on Maui is considered the “Mardi Gras” of the Pacific. Additionally, the Hawaiin Food and Wine Festival takes place in October every year! Planning a trip in November? Thanksgiving luaus are always a blast.

Smaller Crowds

The island’s most heavily trafficked months are over. With the kids back in school and the island at its quietest, the ultimate vacation awaits. Enjoy the beauty of Maui without having to worry about fighting through crowds of tourists in the streets of Whalers Village. Get a table at one of the island’s best restaurants with ease, or find the perfect spot in the sand without a problem. One of the perks of traveling in October is cheaper travel costs. Book your ticket to paradise without having to completely annihilate this year’s travel funds, and enjoy reduced rates on all of the best places to stay on Maui!
