When you visit Maui, you’ll be out and about during the day, taking in the beautiful weather and enjoying everything from snorkeling to hiking. But don’t let the fun stop just because the sun’s going down. Maui has plenty of nighttime activities to keep you exploring the island and experiencing the culture. Check out the following activities to create the perfect night in Maui:
How to Experience Maui at Night
Watch the Night Sky
Haleakala, also known as the East Maui Volcano, reaches a height of just over 10,000 feet and is known as a great place to watch the night sky. You can even see over 100 miles out to sea. Pick up a star map at the Park Headquarters Visitor Center in Haleakala Park or stop by the Haleakala Visitor Center and rent binoculars suitable for stargazing at a local dive shop. This will create the perfect setup for spotting celestial bodies.
Join in the Party
Maui Friday Town Parties help kick off the weekend in style by shining a weekly spotlight on one of the island’s small towns. Enjoy live music, local vendors and food trucks while getting to know Maui’s unique local communities. The schedule of towns is as follows:
- First Friday of the month – Wailuku
- Second Friday – Lahaina
- Third Friday – Makawao
- Fourth Friday – Kihei
- Fifth Friday – Lana'i
See a Show
Continue the day's fun into the evening with a popular nighttime show in Maui. The 'Ulalena at the Maui Theatre is praised as a wonderful combination of music and art, and it expresses Hawaii’s rich history through music and dance. Warren and Annabelle’s Magic Show is also a favorite Maui performance, providing four hours of magic and comedy, as well as cocktails, appetizers and dessert.
