Christmas, Maui Style
The holiday season has quickly approached and is currently in full swing. By now, gifts are mostly wrapped, the decorations have been up for weeks, and the holiday spirit has set in. It truly is a wonderful time of year, and that case is also true across the Hawaiian Islands. Though the weather is a tad different, the season is still a great time of year, and celebrating Christmas is a big deal here.
On the island of Maui, Christmas celebrations and decorations are seen all over the island. Throughout Front Street, the halls (or street) is decked with colorful lights, wreaths, and the familiar Christmas décor that we all love. Boats in the harbor get in on the decorating, with festive lights and even trees visible all over the water. And a familiar face is known to show up around the island, with Santa Claus paying a visit, though his warm clothes may be traded from an Aloha shirt.
The typical Christmas traditions are alive and well on Maui, with meals that everyone loves found all over the island. The island’s best restaurants are cooking up the courses that are found back home, with a view that can’t be beat, and service that is second to none. Hotels and resorts throughout Wailea and Ka’anapali welcome their guests with open arms, eager to celebrate the holiday with travelers from around the world.
For those that are looking for something a little extra special while vacation to the stunning island, consider a Christmas Brunch Cruise, taking you along the coastline and serving up an unforgettable Christmas day meal. Spend your morning on a double decker catamaran, where the views of Maui set the tone for a perfect morning. One of the most incredible parts of this Christmas cruise is the chance to see Humpback Whales who have migrated to the islands for the winter. Spotting just one of these gentle creatures will be a treat that makes this Christmas one you will never forget.
Spending the holidays away from home is never easy, but the beauty of the islands and festive nature of the locals is enough to make this a truly special holiday. Hawaii puts a very unique spin on Christmas, and your holiday in Maui will be filled with memories that will last a lifetime.
