April Hot Picks: Where To Stay on Maui
There is no bad time to visit the Valley Isle, but spring is hard to beat. Days get longer, passing showers become less frequent, and unruly surf on the north-facing shores begins to wane. As the spring break rush tapers off and snowbirds head home, April offers a quiet reprieve from thronging crowds before the summer masses start filtering in. Plus, there’s still a good chance of spotting a few humpback whales! If you’re visiting in April, check out this month’s Hot Picks for accommodation!
West Maui: Kaanapali/Kahana/Napili
West Maui is a hub for visitor accommodations, from the upscale resorts in Kaanapali to the laid-back digs in Kahana and Napili. April attracts scores of athletes to Kaanapali, who flock to the island for the coveted Maui Marathon. The marathon traverses a 26.2-mile route that travels from Kahului to Kaanapali. Meanwhile, Lahaina’s most famous attraction is celebrated this month- the Lahaina Banyan Tree. Festivities abound in Lahaina Town the third weekend in April to commemorate the Banyan Tree’s birthday- or plant-day- complete with live music, games, and a birthday cake!
