How to Travel to Maui

Updated: February 25, 2022

Is Maui island your dream destination for this year? Then you’re in luck because the island has opened its doors once again to visitors, albeit with a bit of caution. So if you’re wondering how to travel to Maui, check out the guide below.

Getting to Maui

The main transportation you’ll be taking to get to Maui is via plane. Fortunately, many airlines offer nonstop flights directly to Maui. Maui’s main airport is the Kahului Airport (OGG). And aside from the main one, Maui also has two smaller commuter airports: the Kapalua Airport (JHM) located in West Maui and the Hana Airport (HNM) in east Maui. You can also get to the valley isle by flying into Honolulu international airport (HNL) on Oahu and then getting on another, shorter flight to Maui, which only takes 30 minutes. 

Staying on Maui

The island of Maui has a great range of accommodations that you can choose from. Whether you travel alone or with a big group, you’ll find a place to stay that well within your budget. Of course, there are high-end resorts if you prefer a luxurious lifestyle. There is also plenty of hotels, bed and breakfasts, and even rental cottages. You can find resorts and hotels in Kapalua, Lahaina, Kaanapali, Makena, Wailea, and even in Hana.

You can visit the Valley Isle any time of the year but the peak season is summer and winter. So if you want to avoid big crowds or high prices, we recommend visiting during the off-seasons of spring and fall.  

Traveling on Maui

When finding out how to travel to Maui, you will also need to know how to get around the island. Maui does have public transportation, like anywhere else. There are also shuttles from hotels and resorts that can take you to nearby attractions. You can also get around via taxis, rideshares, or renting a car. But if you’re new to the place and want to have a truly unique Maui experience, you can always book a private jeep tour with Hoaloha Jeep Adventures, for instance. With a private tour, you can go at your own pace without the hassle of traveling with strangers or sticking to a fixed schedule or itinerary. It’s your trip, so it’s flexible according to your want.

Pandemic travel guidelines

The county of Maui does require its visitors to follow some public emergency guidelines due to the still ongoing pandemic. So while some restrictions have eased up, for the sake of the locals as well as fellow travelers, it’s best if you follow these.

  • Visitors from other states in the US must have proof of vaccination to bypass quarantine or negative pre-testing. They can upload the proof to the Safe Travels website or have a printed copy in hand. 
  • Unvaccinated visitors must have a negative COVID-19 test result 72 hours before their trip to bypass quarantine. They can also upload the negative results on the Safe Travels platform or have a printed copy in hand. Anyone who doesn’t have a negative test must quarantine upon arrival.
