South Maui: Kihei/Wailea 



Charley Young Beach Kihei

South Maui is home to a wealth of accommodation options, from affordable condos in Kihei to sprawling luxury resorts in Wailea. Dining and shopping are abundant in South Maui, and there is no shortage of activities- namely, snorkeling, golfing, kayaking, or simply lazing out on one of the area’s 20-plus beaches. In August in South Maui, you’ll have no problem finding some sun. Just be sure to keep an eye on the shore break from strong summer swells. For more information on ocean/island etiquette and how to stay safe, check out our 15 Things You Shouldn’t Do on Maui post.

Maalaea Aerial Image

August is the height of the summer season, and for surfers, summer is synonymous with south swells. In August, visitors to Maalaea have a good chance of seeing surfers getting tubed at “Freight Trains”- a fickle, fast-breaking wave that lights up during the summer months. If the swell is down, entertain yourself by moseying over to the Maui Ocean Center, one of Maui’s top attractions, located a stone’s throw from several Maalaea condos

West Maui: Kaanapali/Kahana/Napili

While every month is lovely in West Maui, August is hard to beat. Ocean activities abound at every turn, particularly on the busy sands of Kaanapali Beach.
