Hawaii’s second largest island is often described as a sun-drenched pacific paradise, so it is no wonder that many couples find it the ideal place for a romantic proposal. With fabulous scenery, idyllic weather, wonderful food, and a calmer, more relaxed atmosphere than Hawaiian destinations such as Waikiki, there are plenty of places to propose on Maui whatever time of day you choose. Most visitors head to either West Maui or South Maui for the best locations.

 

Sunrise Proposals on Maui

Most people would agree that if you want to pop the question as the sun comes up, there is no better place on Maui to do it than at the top of Haleakala, a dormant volcano in Haleakala National Park. The views from the top are breathtaking, but do be aware it takes two hours to drive to the top from the coast, you need to plan ahead if you want to be there for the sunrise, which is known as one of the best in the world. Legend has it that the Hawaiian god Maui waited in the volcano’s crater to capture the sun and make it move more slowly through the sky.

 

Daytime Proposals on Maui

One of the most romantic ways to propose in Maui is to pack a picnic and head for a secluded beach where you can enjoy snorkeling and swimming before or after the proposal. Ideal beaches in South Maui include Sugar Beach and Kamaole II Beach, while in West Maui Kaanapali Beach and Napili Bay is are wonderful choices.

Lahaina is a lovely historic town in West Maui and is ideal for a more public proposal. You can spend the day shopping Front Street and work your way to the harbor where you can take a cruise or simply walk along the seawall before you get down on one knee. Celebrate afterwards with a Mai Tai at one of the picturesque waterfront bars.

 

Sunset Proposals on Maui

Maui sunsets are legendary and can be enjoyed from just about anywhere along the west coast. There are plenty of places that are perfect for a sunset proposal, however, one of the best options is to take a sunset cruise out of Lahaina Harbor. If you book a sunset cruise with Sea Monkey Private Charters – make sure you let us know you are planning to propose so we can make a few special arrangements for you. Sunset on the water aboard a luxury yacht never fails for romance. If you choose an earlier excursion with us – you can eat lunch or dinner and snorkel during the day then pop the question as the moon rises and the sun sets all the while cruising along the beautiful West Coast of Maui.

Kahului Airport in Maui, HI

Kahului Airport is located on the northern edge of the land bridge between Haleakala and the West Maui Mountain Range on the island of Maui. The airport occupies 1,391 acres of land and is located three miles east of the town of Kahului.

Kahului is the second busiest airport in the State of Hawaii and the newest in terms of terminal facilities.

As a result of the passage of Hawai’i State Legislature bills in 1998 and 2001, Kahului was planned to undergo expansion for new, larger facilities, lengthening of runways, increasing of fuel storage capacities, and construction of new access roads. The controversial project has met opposition from residents who do not agree with the elevation of Kahului Airport to a permanent international airport. Project opponents cited concerns about increased introduction of invasive species and other issues, as evidenced by the common Maui bumper sticker “Big city airport, big city problems.”

Welcome to Maui,

Known as the “Valley Isle,” Maui is dotted with quaint towns, artist communities and local favorites that have been around for generations. Head to Wailuku for pastries from a “mom and pop” bakery, or head to Lahaina for a taste of Maui’s famed farm to table cuisine. From shimmering beaches and sacred Iao Valley to migrating humpback whales and sunset on Haleakala, it’s not surprising Maui was voted the “Best Island” by the readers of Conde Nast Traveler for more than twenty years.
