April Hot Picks: Where to Stay on Maui

Is there anything lovelier than April on Maui?! There are a million reasons to love this month on the Valley Isle. Days start to get longer, winter rainstorms become less frequent, and the wild and unruly surf on the north-facing shores begins to calm.

As the hecticness of spring break fades and snowbirds head home, April offers a quiet reprieve from the crowds before the summer masses start filtering in. Plus, there’s still an excellent chance of spotting humpback whales, especially in early April. If you’re visiting in April, check out this month’s Hot Picks for accommodation!
