If you’ve been coming to Maui for a few years now and are looking for something new to try then why not add stargazing on Maui to your bucket list? Or, if this is your first vacation to Maui and you have everything planned from your Maui vacation rental to having your itinerary full of Hawaii activities, then you should still make a little bit of room to get a glimpse of the Hawaiian night sky because this is a family-friendly, fun and often free excursion you can enjoy.

On Maui, and in Hawaii in general, we have some of the best night sky stargazing opportunities in the world. That is why so many astronomers flock to the islands to do their research! It’s also why so many astronomy loving and star-enthralled travelers visit the islands every year. If you want to get the most out of your next sky-watching adventure on the island, then here are a few tips for you.

Head To Haleakala

Haleakala has prime views of the cosmos and you can even book a special Maui stargazing tour to learn all about the constellations, planets, and moon phases while standing high at the mountain’s crater. At 10,000 feet and with little to no light pollution, you’ll be able to see so much of outer space that it will blow your mind!

Take A Night Boat Cruise

Now here’s an adventure everyone can get on board with. What better way to see the stars than by out on the ocean away from land and light? There are multiple night cruises on Maui and some even come with complimentary sky-watching tours. Make sure to do your research and sit back and enjoy the natural show!

Plan Your Own Trip To The Beach

You don’t have to buy a ticket or book a tour to enjoy the stars on Maui. Simply grab your favorite beach blanket, your favorite bottle of champagne, your loved ones and head out to the nearest beach where you can sit back, relax, enjoy the stars together and create lasting island vacation memories of a lifetime.  You can even make it super easy on yourself by renting a beachfront vacation rental!

Those are some of the best top places to enjoy stargazing on Maui.
