Top Answers To Maui Travel Questions

    Absolutely, Donna, you don't have to look too far to find both snorkeling and tennis at any number of beachfront resorts! My top pick for this combination would be one of the resorts on Maui's west coast, which fronts some of the continent's best snorkeling. The Grand Wailea (http://bit.ly/zCtuFh) is close to some good beach snorkeling at Ahihi Bay, plus gazes out toward the world-class snorkeling (and diving) in offshore Molokini Crater. The resort can furnish you with gear plus set up excursions to Molokini. Further north up Maui's west coast -- with any number of great snorkeling sites, detailed here: http://bit.ly/y8pvBn -- the Kapalua Resort also offers excellent tennis facilities as well as access to more great snorkeling sites in Honolu'a Bay. The other region I'd look at would be the Caribbean, with too many resorts to mention here. To help with your research, here's a link to an article detailing Away.com's top-ten snorkeling spots: http://bit.ly/j4SOla. You can pretty much rest assured that you'll find a suitable resort in most, if not all, of these recommended places. Off the top of my head, I'd recommend BVI's Rosewood Little Dix Bay, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, or Bonaire's Harbour Village Beach Club.

    when is the best time to go
    MrsJBolt answered:
    Mary, I visited Maui at the end of November and thought it was the perfect weather (in the low 80s), but locals told me that Maui has a year-around temp avg between 75-85*F. So I would say anytime of the year would be a great time to visit Maui. Although if you are going to be outdoors all the time I would probably chose Dec-Mar as it is slightly cooler (& you might see the whales migrating!) The temperatures can vary based on where you are on the island too. If you plan on taking a tour of Haleakala take a sweatshirt as it can be around 40*F if you want to watch sunrise.

    HI Kathy, Summertime, when families descend on Hawai‘i, constitutes high season. So does wintertime (from mid-December through March), when a blanket of brrrr covers most of the mainland. Holiday periods like Thanksgiving and Easter also draw throngs. Be careful about coming in late April: There are three simultaneous holidays in Japan at that time, which means the Japanese are traveling in greater numbers than usual. In general, the north and eastward facing coasts tend to get more rain. But even when it's raining on the north or eastern shore, it's often not on the south or westerly shores. And rain showers don't tend to last that long, like they do on the mainland.

    what are things to do in hawaii
    Anonymous user answered:
    Hi Anita! There are tons of things to do on Oahu! I love it because it offers city life and also the secluded, remote beaches. There is so much history and fun things to do in Waikiki, I love the North Shore too, and you can also always get awesome weather on the Leeward side. Oahu has my favorite beach of all time, Lanikai. I have used a beach equipment rental company whenever I go there, hawaiibeachtime.com they have chairs, kayaks, umbrellas, coolers, surfboards, the whole nine yards. They are very quality and affordable. The best thing is they deliver to anywhere on the island. This is nice because you can have luxury and activities on some of the most secluded beaches.
