Mele Kalikimaka! Escape the cold and spend the holidays on Maui with Kahana Sunset and take part in these fun and festive events and things to do around the island. We hope you have a Maui Christmas!
See the Banyan Tree in Lahaina
Banyan Tree Park is always a beautiful place to visit in Lahaina, Maui but it is especially spectacular during the holidays in Maui. Every year Banyan Tree Park is decorated in a blanket of colorful lights that twinkle in the tree’s leafy branches. The tree itself has twelve trunks and covers an area of 200 feet and shades two-thirds of an acre, making it beautiful canopy of holiday magic this time of year.
Santa Clause is coming to town
Santa makes his way down south to several spots in Maui this time of year. Be sure look out for event announcements at Polo Beach and Grand Wailea for the arrival of Santa on Christmas Eve.
Skip the cookie-cutter shopping malls at home and find a last-minute unique gift at one of the many holiday markets on Maui. Craftsman from all over the island sell one-of-a-kind items you can only find here on the island. We suggest, Whalers Village in Kaanapali, Shops at Wailea, and the town of Makawao. Or check out the local list of holiday craft fairs in the area for more original gift ideas.
