There is so much to do and see during your Maui Labor Day Weekend! Along with the usual activities, like hiking, surfing, and exploring the downtown shops, there are annual events that only occur over the famous holiday weekend.
Art Night in Lahaina
One of the best ways to kick off the holiday weekend is to take part in Art Night in Lahaina Town on Friday, September 4th! If you are an artist or a huge fan of local talent, then we recommend going to one of the numerous galleries in Lahaina. For those who want to combine the beautiful weather and sightseeing, then this is a must-attend event. Head here from 7pm to 10 pm on Friday night to walk through the streets, feel the ocean breeze on your face, stop and get a drink at one of the many bars, and see work from local galleries. It is no wonder that the bustling and cultural town of Lahaina is called the ‘Art Capital of the Pacific’! You can also enjoy free refreshments during this wholesome night out on the town.
Guided Walk of Coastal Dunes and Wetlands
For those who want to burn a few calories, see the incredible nature, take remarkable photos, and become one with nature, the Guided Walk of the Waihe’e Dunes and Wetlands is a must-do. We love that this walk is suitable for people of all ages and fitness levels, so you can even do this as a family-friendly activity with young children! Walk around the culturally diverse areas of Hawaii, walk along the coastal dunes, learn about the Hawaiian villages and buildings, ask questions about the Hawaiian heritage and royalty, and see remarkable endangered plants and animals.
Summer Block Party
Next, head to the Summer Block Party on Sunday, September 6th, to keep the party going all weekend long and celebrate in the best way possible. There is much more to do here than just drink beer along the coast at one of the beach cafes! Instead, you can attend the Summer block party at the Outlets of Maui to get great deals on souvenirs, buy drinks at a discounted price, taste some of the local seafood, and order happy hour beverages for you and your friends. You can also head to Pi Artisan Pizzeria for brunch dish specials and happy hour pricing! Plus, all of this goes to a good cause and helps the local Make a Wish Hawaii foundation.
Last but not least, end your Labor Day Weekend with an educational and informative excursion. Head to the Hawaiian Islands Humpback Whale National Marine Sanctuary to speak to teachers and instructors to learn more about these incredible marine creatures and take unforgettable photos.
Maui Ocean Center
Another fun thing to do that you can partake in all year round but is fun for families with young children over the holiday weekend is to attend the Maui Ocean Center and the Aquarium of Hawaii. You can learn about marine wildlife and see why this is one of the top 10 aquariums in the world as ranked by Cool Destinations! It is no wonder that people flock here from all over the world, as it is inexpensive, immersive, and informative. You can purchase an all-day ticket for less than $45!
Go Whale Watching
If you can’t get enough of the unique marine life, then we recommend going on a whale-watching tour from Lahaina Harbor. Board the Quicksilver and have fun with this two-hour guided tour with a professional who can teach you about whales’ behavior, lifestyles, and cool facts. Bring our camera so you can take photos of whales in their natural habitat as you speed by in the catamaran! This fun afternoon excursion costs just $40.
You can also go on a Maui snorkeling tour! Choose your path, such as the Molokini Tour, which lasts 5 hours and takes the entire morning. Head onto the 53-foot Lani Kai II boat with your captain to slide off the 20-foot water slide, have a few drinks, go snorkeling in the bright blue water, and bond with your friends and family.
Maui Ghost Walks
Are you a fan of the supernatural? If so, book a Maui ghost walk in Lahaina to find out about the haunted history of this beautiful town! Your tour guide will take you to haunted beaches, old artifacts, antique buildings, fairy hideaways, and much more.
Book Your Stay on Maui
There is SO much to do in Hawaii during our vacation; it is no wonder that people head here from all over the world to celebrate Labor Day Weekend! Along with going to beaches, hiking, and sunbathing, you can take part in these annual events that only happen in September. We know you are going to have an unforgettable vacation with your friends and family!
Maui is home to fun activities, breathtaking scenery, friendly people, mouth-watering food, and exciting summer events!

Dreaming, Beaming, and Streaming
Another event put on by the Film Festival company in Maui is the Dreaming, Beaming, and Streaming Speed of Light Virtual Cinema for the entire month of July! If you can’t get enough of local flicks and movie premieres after the film festival, head to the cinema — or stay right on your own couch — to enjoy this virtual film festival with feature-length films from all over the world.
Events in Maui: Maui AgFest
If you are a true nature lover, or you want to expose your kids to a different way of life, we recommend going to the Maui AgFest! This fun and educational event can give you and your entire family information on farms, taking care of animals, agriculture, produce, and how farmers live their lives! This fun event features a pancake breakfast where you can meet local farmers, food booths to try locally-sourced food, animal exhibits, and a food competition featuring local chefs.
This is a unique event that is solely meant for Hawaii! This canoe festival is held by the Hawaiian Sailing Canoe Association on Kaanapali Beach, featuring canoe owners, those who go canoe sailing, and canoe races to keep your adrenaline going all day long!
Kapalua Wine and Food Festival
The Kapalua Wine and Food Festival is one of the most widely lauded events in the state due to the quality of the wines, setting, ambiance, and low-priced tickets! The 43rd annual Kapalua Wine and Food Festival is held at Kapalua and features different types of wine, wine-tasting seminars, VP packages, exclusive offerings, a Grand Tasting Gala evening, and winemaker dinners. We recommend getting a package that includes having an afternoon tasting with a local winemaker, Sunday Champagne brunch, and an intimate winemaker dinner that gives you inside information!
Through the Roots
Make sure you come and visit Maui at the beginning of August to attend Through the Roots, a fusion of both Hawaiian and West Coast American music that features a classic island sound, reggae, and rock. Head to the Da Playground any time after 8 pm with your over 21+ pals to dance, drink, and have a great time!
Obon Dance Festival
The Obon Dance Festival at the Lahaina Hongwanji Mission features a weekend full of mouthwatering local food, fresh produce, crafts, arts, Keiki, dancing, drinking, and good vibes.
Emma Farden Sharpe Hula Festival
Are you in the mood to attend a traditional hula or hula? Then check out the Emma Farden Hula Festival at the Lahaina Town Action Committee and Lahaina Hawaiian Civic Club! This event states that ‘hula is the language of the heart and the heartbeat of the Hawaiian people’ — and if you are lucky enough to attend this annual party, you will soon see why! Hula is full of good vibes, dancing, live music, friendly people, beautiful flowers, and interesting history.
Yoshua Di Carpio
Are you still in the mood to listen to some live music? Well, listen to Yoshua Di Carpio and Andrea Walls for some top-notch jazz music that is truly going to get you out of your seat and moving and grooving to the upbeat tunes! We love this concert series at Java Jazz in Lahaina which has world-class music and a relaxing setting.
We love the Silent Disco for you to just sit back, relax, and break out your best dance moves! The Silent Disco at Down the Hatch is a fun and exciting event on Thursday, September 15th, at Down the Hatch and Breakwall SHave Ice Company in Lahaina, Maui. head here after 10 pm to listen to live music, choose your DJ, and dance with your pals.

Hawaii is really the stuff-of dreams. You have bright flowers, friendly people, amazing views, and fresh seafood – what more could you want for a relaxing and stress-free getaway? We can’t think of anything! Plus, if you head to this incredible island during your upcoming Easter holiday break, you can do tons of annual activities and attend once-a-year Maui Easter events that are sure to have you raving all year long. Maui Life Realty is here to make sure you have a fun-filled and stress-free Easter vacation. We have put together a list of the top things for you to do during your time on this lush and tropical island.
Get Up Early to Catch the Sunrise
Although getting up early may not be the top thing on your list to do this vacation, we can think of one reason to set that alarm for 5 in the morning – the sunrise! The sunrise from Maui, either right on the beach, on the mountain, or through the town, is truly life changing. We recommend waking up in the dark and heading to Haleakala Crater to see the sun come over the clouds drifting apart in the distance and settling on the mountains. Or wake up early, head for an early morning surf, and watch the sunrise over the water. We promise you won’t be disappointed!
Head to Church
You may not be the most religious person in the world, but going to one of Maui’s many churches is a great way to see the island, check out some old buildings, and pay respect to the culture of the area. We recommend going to Waiola Church Lahaina Town to see the beginning point of Catholicism and Christianity on this unique island. Or visit the Keawalai’ Church in Makena to catch the Easter Sunrise Service at 7:30 in the morning. Not only can you say a prayer for your loved ones, but you can admire the beautiful architecture, meet some locals, and start the day on a wholesome note.
Dig into a Filling and Healthy Island Brunch
Hawaii is known for its fresh fruit, mouthwatering seafood, ice-cold beer, and large serving sizes. So, of course, Easter brunch is going to be one of the top things to do this holiday weekend! After a fulfilling morning full of exercise, sunrises, and church, it is finally time for what everyone has been waiting for – food!
For those who are staying in the southern part of Maui, we recommend going to Kihei Caffe. There are endless items that you can order while you’re here, and all of them are a great choice! We recommend getting the Irish Eggs Benedict with corned beef hash and grilled tomatoes if you are in the mood for something European influenced. Or try the sweet and mouthwatering French toast with your choice of bananas, coconut, pineapple, or macadamia nuts. For those who want a seafood feast for brunch, you can’t go wrong with the Lox and Bagel or the Blackened Fish and eggs with your daily fish perfectly seasoned and grilled.
On the northwestern part of Maui, you can’t go wrong with a Sunday morning trip to The Gazebo. They Gazebo doesn’t take reservations so allow yourself up to an hour to wait in line to be seated. It is well worth the wait! The Gazebo is a traditional American restaurant that serves up huge breakfast and brunch plates that are sure to have you full all day long. We recommend getting one of the ‘Eggstraordinary’ dishes, like the eggs benedict with ham, fried rice plate with meat and veggies, or the breakfast burrito with Mexican-influenced spices, green pepper, tomato, pepper jack cheese, and ham.
Burn Off That Hefty Brunch
Last but not least, one of the top activities to do during Easter weekend with your friends or family is to go for a nice, long hike! The weather on Maui is perfect all year round, but spring time really is the ideal time to visit. It is slightly cold in the morning, warm in the daytime, and has a cool breeze in the evening. It is the perfect season to spend all day outside, go for a hike, and break a sweat.
While you are on Maui, there are tons of outdoor activities and exercises that you can do to stay fit and healthy during your weekend away. We recommend going on one of the many hikes around the island, like Haleakala National Park to reach the top of the crater and view the clouds over the mountaintops, Hana to see the flowing waterfall cascading around the cave and the pool, or Makawao to see the lush green forests and the large trees.
Book Your Maui Stay
If this sounds like the ideal holiday weekend away from home, then Maui is THE place for you. Check out one of our rentals from Maui Life Realty to rent a house for you and your family, condo for you and your friends, or apartment for you and your partner. We guarantee you will have the best vacation ever!
Maui is one of the hottest tourist destination spots for those who want to enjoy the sun, waves, and never-ending days. If you are an avid surfer, you may never leave Hawaii! With the bright blue waters, white sand beaches, and green palm trees, this really is a haven for so many who enjoy the sunshine, blue ocean, and friendly locals. What more could you ask for if you were in need of a relaxing holiday?
We love Maui for those who enjoy outdoor activities, like hiking and biking, and for those who want to simply check out a different way of life. The locals here are extremely friendly and can provide insight into the way they live in the tropical climate, the food they eat, and the best thing to do in your free time.
If you are only in Maui for a short vacation, it is essential you look up the best things to do before you head here so you can make the most out of your vacation days! Let’s see the top fall activities in Maui in 2022 — you do NOT want to miss these things to do!
Attend a Luau
This may be one of the most quintessential Hawaiian things that you can ever do — which is exactly what it should be on your list for your “must do” activities during your time in Maui. This unique type of fire celebration is something that you will never forget. The local dancers and performers are a genuine and heartfelt ceremony that is deep-rooted in the Hawaiian culture. We recommend heading to the Te Au Moana Luau at the Marriott Hotel or the Maui Nui Luau celebration at the nearby Kaanapali Beach during your vacation in Maui.
Zipline High in the Sky
Zipline is a great way to see the nearby volcanoes, the green forests, the expansive land, and the nearby villages as you coast through the sky. Even if you are not an adrenaline junkie, you can find ziplining routes that are not very high off the ground, providing you with a fun, fast, and safe way to get a birds-eye point of view of the surrounding island. We recommend checking out the Seventh Line North Shore Zipline Tour to really get a comprehensive glimpse of the entire island!
After you have soared high in the sky, it is time to get another viewpoint of Maui. Going underwater and in the water is one of the main perks of coming to Hawaii, as the water is bright blue, perfect for surfing, and great for snorkeling or scuba diving. We recommend having a professional take you snorkeling under the water so you can see marine life, including turtles, fish, coral reefs, and other mammals.
Soar Through the Air in a Helicopter Tour
And now we go back into the sky! The helicopter tour is one of the best ways that you can see the entire island in just a few hours. Even though you may not want to spend a lot of money, this is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that you simply can’t pass up during your holiday in Maui. On a helicopter tour, you can check out the entire Big Island, lava fields, active volcanoes, and other surrounding islands.
Up Your Adrenaline with an ATV Adventure
Heading out on an ATV is the best way you can zip through the nearby forests, explore the open fields, and check out the blue water on the coastline. Instead of just walking along trials or cycling up steep hills, ATVs help you see everything without having to break a sweat! An ATV adventure is one of the most popular ways to explore the small island. We recommend booking the Lahaina ATV Adventure to see the island in a unique and fun way — of course, if you don’t want to get dirty, this is not for you!
The last type of adventure we think is ideal for those who want to see a unique view of the island is the Atlantis Submarine Adventure. This type of underwater excursion lets you see the beaches from under the water, as you sink below the waves, dive into the deep blue waters, and check out the expansive ocean surrounding the dotted islands of Hawaii.
Accommodation in Maui, Hawaii
If this sounds like the perfect vacation for your upcoming holiday season, we recommend booking accommodation in Maui well in advance! Instead of looking at overpriced hotel rooms and crowded AirBnB houses, you can use Maui Life Realty to book a spacious, modern, and luxurious accommodation that looks out on the bright blue waters.

You can’t come to Hawaii and not surf! Even if you’re a beginner, you can take lessons from a professional to get on your feet and hit the waves. Or, if you want to try your luck as an avid surfer, head to Wai’anapanapa State Park to surf, meet some locals, and shred the tubes, dude!
One of the most picturesque roads in the entire world, the Hana Highway is a scenic route through a tropical rainforest that offers incredible views over the island. This is a great way to spend an afternoon cruising around, listening to music, and really taking in the beauty of the state.
Haleakala National Park
We love this national park for hiking, taking photos, and camping with your family! Head to this incredible vast space of nature to view the Haleakala Volcano and check out the incredible Pools of Oheo!
Of course, you have to go to the beach! It doesn’t matter if you just want to suntan and relax, the beach is the perfect place for everyone to find something to do. Bring your kids there to build some sandcastles, read a book under the shade of a lounge chair, and kick back and relax — after all, you ARE on vacation!
Accommodation in Maui, Hawaii
Don’t just spend a fortune on a small toe room because you are in Hawaii!

Spoil yourself with a special island getaway to Maui this Memorial Day. Book a trip full of fun and excitement or rest and relaxation or create a balanced mixture that’s sure to keep everyone happy and excited every day. With an average air temperature of 76 and a water temperature to match it, you’ll want to plan as much time outdoors, with a sprinkle of indoor activities for an unexpected rainy day or just to get out of the sun for a while. No matter what you choose, there are plenty of activities to create a Maui Memorial Day trip full of memories that are unique to you and your loved ones.
There are plenty of things to do and see during an island vacation, but you’ll find yourself at the beach nearly every day. This Memorial Day, take a walk along the shore, swim in the Pacific, or try a new activity like surfing or stand-up paddleboarding. No matter how you spend your time on the beach this Memorial Day, make sure to pack the sun protection and some beach snacks for lazing the day away.
Many charter companies will take you out into the Pacific for a chance to swim and discover what lies beneath the water. Keep your eyes peeled for turtles, fish, and even whales and dolphins swimming nearby. Some charters spend the whole excursion in one spot, while others may take you to more.
Wildlife Watching For a Maui Memorial Day
If you didn’t see them on your snorkeling trip, charter a boat that seeks them out. There are several charters in the marinas of Maui that will take you out in search of dolphins, whales, and other sea life. Bring your camera for pictures of whales breaching, or dolphins coming up for a little air. You might even win their companionship as they follow alongside the vessel.
Road to Hana
Pack up the rental car and go on a sightseeing excursion on land this Memorial Day. While the Road to Hana is “only” 64 miles, it’s full of hairpin turns, one-lane bridges, and plenty of blind spots. You may start out thinking a 25-mile-an-hour speed limit is slow, but you’ll be thankful for it as the road twists and turns. The road to Hana isn’t just driving. There are scenic hikes to beautiful waterfalls, lava tubes and rocks, black sand beaches, and historic sites like Charles Lindbergh’s gravesite. You can brave the road on your own and make your own stops, or you can join a tour with a knowledgeable guide who will take you to many of the best landmarks and hiking spots along the way. However, you navigate the path, make sure to pack plenty of drinks, snacks, and your camera.
Take a short drive or walk from your vacation rental and you’ll find a restaurant or shop with authentic Hawaiian food. For a sweet treat, there are several that serve Hawaiian shaved ice or stop by Hula Cookies & Ice Cream for ice cream, cookies, or an ice cream cookie sandwich made to order with your choice of cookies and ice cream. If you’re in the mood for pie, get a taste of mainland sweetness at Maui Pie Co., owned and operated by the family behind Grand Traverse Pie Co. in Michigan.
Haleakalā National Park
Hawaii has many national memorials, parks, and historic sites, and there’s one on Maui. Visit Haleakalā National Park in Kula. It’s a special place full of both ancient and modern Hawaiian culture. The park also cares for several endangered species, some of which exist nowhere else in the world. See stark volcanic landscapes and sub-tropical rain forests and more on a hike through the park’s backcountry.
Lahaina Banyan Court Park
A Memorial Day trip to Maui is usually packed with fun in the sun. Take a break from the sun and bask in the shade under the oldest tree on the island. Head to Lahaina Banyan Court Park in Lahaina, a historic town just off the harbor and home to the oldest living Banyan tree on the island. The tree is over 150 years old and actually isn’t a single tree. Over the years, several other Banyan trees grew and “merged” to make a single beautiful tree.
Maui Memorial Day Memories
From a cozy one-bedroom condo for a small family getaway to a spacious six-bedroom home for a Memorial Day reunion, Maui Life Realty has a vacation rental that’s just right for you this Memorial Day. Arrive and feel the stresses and worries of home melt away and the feeling of Aloha wash over you, knowing all your needs will be met. Enjoy preparing a meal in the fully equipped kitchen, then stretch out with some popcorn and your favorite show or movie. Multiple private spaces like patios, balconies and your own bedroom means you can retreat to privacy whenever you want. Choose a premium unit for flat-screen TVs, stainless steel appliances, a wet bar, plush furnishings, and more.
Call us today to start planning a Memorial Day island adventure to remember for years to come!
