Any time of year is the perfect time to visit Maui. Our agreeable climate, gorgeous views, and immaculate beaches are always ready and waiting for you. But, if we had to pick one month that is our favorite, October would be at the top of the list. October on Maui is full of adventure, fun, and even some delicious food! Join your friends at The Pauli Family Condos at Wailea as we discover what events are happening in Maui this October.
Known as the shoulder season, October brings lower costs to travelers as summer comes to an end. Look for lower plane and rental car fares, discounted accommodation rates, and cheaper prices for local activities. And if saving money and avoiding large crowds isn’t enough to entice you, check out these fun events happening all over Maui.
