Maui wildfire update (September 3, 2023)
We are devastated by the recent fires on Maui. At the moment, and in alignment with Governor Green, the Love Big Island website urges visitors to refrain from going to West Maui (including Lāhainā, Nāpili, Kāʻanapali, and Kapalua) until at least October 17th, as a means of respect to the people and places that have been lost in Lāhainā during this devastating tragedy.
We encourage travelers to consider visiting other areas of Maui (including Kahului, Wailuku, Kīhei, Wailea, Mākena, Pāʻia and Hāna), or other islands such as Kauaʻi, Oʻahu, Lānaʻi, Molokaʻi and Hawaiʻi Island.
