Spending Christmas in Lahaina – or spending the Winter Holidays on Maui in general – is nothing short of an amazing experience!
Waiting for Santa to arrive at the beach or going on a whale watching tour on the island will definitely transform your holidays this year into a fun, unique adventure.
If you’re looking to escape the cold at home this winter, here’s why you should consider booking a trip to Lahaina this Christmas.
1. Take a break from the cold and spend Christmas in Lahaina outdoors
Instead of staying in this Christmas because it’s cold, you could visit Lahaina and enjoy a wonderful time outdoors!
Although December is a tad more windy than the rest of the year, the Hawaiian island still has the best weather in the States. The average temperature here ranges between the low 80°F during the day and the mid 60°F at night. That said, Lahaina makes for the perfect destination if you’re looking to spend some time outdoors and enjoy the Christmas markets without getting the chills.
2. Go whale watching this Christmas in Lahaina
Each year, from early winter ’till spring, it’s humpback whale season!
If you’re looking to do something special this year, come visit Lahaina and book a whale watching tour for the entire family. Thousands of humpback whales migrate to Hawaii to spend the cold winter months here. You can’t miss the chance to admire them and the Winter Holidays make for the perfect occasion to see these magnificent creatures in their own natural habitat.
3. Enjoy a typical Hawaiian Christmas dinner with your loved ones
Instead of dealing with all the food prepping and cleanup at home, you can enjoy a typical Hawaiian feast this Christmas in Lahaina!
Every once in a while, it’s OK to treat yourself and your family to something nice. And Christmas on the island of Maui is nothing short of a delicious experience. There’s a wide variety of restaurants in Lahaina where you can book your Christmas dinner this year.
4. Attend a Luau at the beach this Christmas in Lahaina
Hawaii is famous for its Luaus, so why not attend one at a beach this Christmas, in Lahaina?
For many people around the world, attending a Luau is part of their bucket list. If you have the chance to visit the island of Maui, make sure to book your stay in December so that you can attend one of the many family friendly Christmas luaus that take place in Lahaina.
5. Be there for the magical moment of the lighting of the banyan tree
Saved the best one for last: attend the wonderful tradition of the lighting of the banyan tree in Lahaina.
This particular tree is the largest one of its kind in the United States and each year, for the past 2 decades, its large trunks are wrapped in Christmas lights that transform Lahaina into the most magical place in Hawaii. The lighting of the banyan tree ceremony is held on the first weekend in December, so make sure you’re here when the moment happens and join the Holiday fun!
