West Maui to lift travel restrictions October 8th

Lahaina experienced devastating fires last month, so West Maui has been closed to visitors. Other areas on Maui, including Kahului, Wailuku, Kīhei, Wailea, Mākena, Pā‘ia, and Hāna, and the islands of Kaua‘i, O‘ahu, Lāna‘i, and Hawai‘i Island were unaffected, and have remained open to visitors.

Beginning October 8th, West Maui, including the areas of Nāpili, Kāʻanapali, Honokōwai and Kapalua, will lift travel restrictions and welcome visitors once again, except for Lahaina.

When you visit Maui, you support Hawaii’s businesses and workers relying on tourism for their families’ livelihood, especially when you are mindful in the following ways:

• Visit with aloha and compassion.

• Support local businesses.

• Consider participating in unique volunteer opportunities throughout the islands.

• 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 (

Update: The rest of West Maui north of Lahaina — from Kahana to Kā‘anapali — will begin reopening on Wednesday, November 1.
