In West Maui, recent wildfires have resulted in the devastating loss of loved ones, homes, cultural and historical sites, and businesses in Lahaina. We are grateful for the outpouring of support for Maui from around the world, from sharing memories and offering their assistance, to asking questions about travel to Maui and the rest of the state.
Respectful travel to any of the Hawaiian Islands, including the accessible areas of Maui, is welcomed and encouraged, now more than ever. West Maui accommodations have begun a phased reopening and, on November 1, the rest of West Maui – except Lahaina – will be open. Your visit will support Hawaiʻi’s businesses and workers that rely on tourism for their families’ livelihood, especially when you are mindful in the following ways:
- Visit with aloha, compassion and empathy.
- Support local businesses.Visit mauinuifirst.com for suggestions.
- Hosting uninvited volunteers in direct recovery work may be difficult at this time, however there are plenty of ongoing volunteer opportunities.
- Learn about the historical and cultural significance of Lahaina but stay away from the area as a means of respect for the people and places that have been lost during this devastating tragedy. Do not take photos of the area, even from afar.
Access Restrictions in Lahaina
Lahaina will remain fully closed to the public until further notice out of respect to the town’s residents. County, state, and federal emergency responders continue with efforts to conduct clean-up efforts of debris and hazardous materials resulting from the wildfires. Please do not stop on the bypass or streets to take pictures or to get a closer view.
Maui entrepreneurs have incredible products that support their local families and communities while giving you a taste of Hawai'i. Whether you are planning to visit Maui or looking to support from the comfort of your own home, we encourage you to SHOP MAUI and support the local businesses that are helping their communities to rebuild their lives today.More
Be a part of the Maui recovery efforts. It takes a pretty special person to want to take their respect for what was lost during the Maui fires a step further by volunteering – an action which will create positive ripples in the Maui community as they rebuild and recover and across all our islands.More
