South Maui Weather Info


rainfall map | satellite image | Wailea weather forecast

One of the most frequent questions I am asked about Maui is about the weather. “What is the weather like in January?” or “Should I expect a lot of rain?” Truth be told, simple answer about Maui weather is: It depends where you are located on the Island.
When searching online for weather about Maui, do be careful as there are many climates on Maui, and the temperature will based on your location. Also, most of the national weather applications will quote the airport on Maui (Kahului or OGG) for the weather.

The Best Wailea and South Maui Weather Forecast

My favorite resource for Maui weather is Hawaii Weather Today. What I love about Glenn’s forecasts is you can pick different parts of the island, so you can get the exact forecast for your excursion.

I always joke that if you took the temperature at 12 noon on January 1st and July 4th you would not have much of a variance. The average high temperature in Wailea in January is 82 and for July is 88. Compare what you see on Glenn’s site with the following info.

Maui’s climate varies depending on your location on the Island and your elevation. I’ve seen a snow-capped Haleakala, and of course, I’ve gotten a sunburn at the beach. Mostly, Maui’s climate is considered Tropical.

Rainfall on Maui

There is a wet and a dry side to the Island. The south side of Maui, including the areas of Kihei, Wailea and Makena, is typically warm and dry, receiving less then 10 inches of rain per year. The west side, including Lahaina, Ka’anapali and Kapalua, receives more rain—nearly triple the amount.

If you really want wet, though, check out the West Maui Mountains and the east side of Haleakala. These true Tropical Rain Forests get over 300 inches of rain per year. Now you know why there are so many beautiful waterfalls on the road to Hana!

If you’re seeking sunshine on your visit to Maui, Wailea Ekahi Village is perfectly positioned for sun seekers, with access to Keawakapu Beach. Learn more about our family friendly, oceanfront vacation village.

Matt was wonderful to communicate with and extremely accommodating. The unit we stayed in (2B) was AMAZING!!! It had... everything we needed. When I opened the front door, the first words that came out of my mouth were "OH MY!!". The view of the ocean from the lanai was breathtaking! We were able to watch the whales and admire the beautiful sunsets. Thank you again, Matt, for taking such good care of us. Mahalo!!read more

Ekahi village is beautiful and this condo is amazing! Stocked with everything you could possibly need. We have stayed... in many, many condos while travelling and this was one of, if not the, best. Great sleeping quarters for the kids. Beautifully appointed and the views from the deck and master bedroom are unreal. We hope to come back and get to stay at 11E again!read more

Just completed a week stay in Condo #20A for our first trip ever to Maui and it was amazing! Well maintained and... recently updated. The condo fit our group of 6 comfortably with room to spare. The pool for the Wailea Ekahi Village has stunning views and is connected to the ocean. Everything was top of the line and the friendliness of the owners couldn’t be beat. The location was ideal for all events on the island from visiting Lahaina and Kapalua to doing the Road to Hana and Haleakala. A walk to the beach is only 3 minutes away as it’s right across the street. In addition, a number of fabulous restaurants are less than 15 minutes away as it’s right off of S Kihei Rd. Highly recommend for all future visitors of Maui!read more

Really disappointed and frustrated that Matt will not refund our deposit for condo (17C) that we rented and couldn't... enjoy due to covid. Our flights were cancelled, every other business refunded us for everything, except this one. He kept our deposit. So frustrating and sadly, we will not go to Ekahi Village again. Matt--You refunding one night of our deposit and keeping the rest is the same difference. You're missing my point completely. It's a world-wide global pandemic. It would be a good time to possibly look outside of your cancellation policy. We didn't cancel because of rain or a change of more

We stayed in 17C early December and had a great time. We have made several trips to Maui and Wailea and really like... this unit. Has all the nice things you would expect even down to great quality linens and towels. Matt was great to work with, everything went very smooth. We will be more
