Winter Vacations in Maui
If you are researching locations for your next winter vacation, look no further than Maui, Hawaii. Maui is the best choice for escaping the bitter cold of the north but there are many other reasons why visiting Maui during the winter is a great vacation.
Did you know the waves in Maui are much bigger in the winter months than in the summer? The large waves attract the more athletic surfers and many championship surfers to the area. They can be found showing off their talents on any particular day. Some of the largest waves in the world can be found in the Hawaiian islands during the winter.
The whale-watching season is also during the winter months. Whale watching attracts a large number of tourists to Maui each year during this season. The humpback whale, which is on the endangered species list, can be seen simply by taking a leisurely stroll on any beach. Several tour companies offer day trips to great whale watching locations. The shallow waters found here provide protection for the whales against shark attacks.
Maui is a great place to visit any time of the year, which is why it is such a wonderful vacation destination. It has a moderate temperature all year round, which makes it a perfect place to escape the hot summers of the deep south and the frigid winters of the north. The days are fairly long due to the fact that it is in the tropics. An 11 hour day is typical for Maui in the winter months and you can enjoy 13.5 hours of daylight in the summer. You can swim in the warm waters all year long. The lowest the water temperature will get is 73-74 degrees in the months of February and March.
Maui is voted by the locals as having the best beaches of all the islands. It’s the best island for lots of things – snorkeling, diving, surfing, and, of course, whale watching. Maui has everything one could want for a perfect escape from the winter cold and dreary winter months back on the mainland.
