Māalaea is a census-designated place (CDP) in Maui County, Hawaii, United States. Change things up with these side-trips from Maalaea: Ka'anapali Beach (in Lahaina) and Haleakala Crater (in Haleakala National Park). And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Hana Highway - Road to Hana, make a trip to Lahaina Banyan Court, kick back and relax at Kalepolepo Beach Park, and meet the residents at Maui Ocean Center.

To find where to stay, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Maalaea trip planning site .

Newark to Maalaea is an approximately 13.5-hour combination of flight and car. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 5 hours traveling from Newark to Maalaea. Traveling from Newark in April, things will get much warmer in Maalaea: highs are around 85°F and lows about 68°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Tue) to allow time to travel to Honolulu.

In many ways much more Asian than American, Honolulu is Hawaii's largest city and its center of government, transportation, commerce, and tourism.
Change things up with a short trip to Kailua Beach Park in Kailua (about 32 minutes away). There's still lots to do: stroll the grounds of USS Arizona Memorial, kick back and relax at Waikiki Beach, don't miss a visit to Battleship Missouri Memorial, and see the interesting displays at USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park.

To find photos, maps, reviews, and tourist information, read our Honolulu tour planner .

Getting from Maalaea to Honolulu by flight takes about 4.5 hours. Other options: do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of car and flight. Expect a daytime high around 83°F in April, and nighttime lows around 71°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
