It is safe to travel to Maui
With the exception of Lahaina and some other small pockets of fires, much of Maui remains pristine and untouched by the fires. It is completely safe to travel to Maui.
Only a relatively small area of Maui — West Maui — is closed to visitors
Lahaina and West Maui are the only places where visitors are asked to keep away. All other areas of Maui are open and welcoming visitors.
Maui’s famous Road to Hana, the summit of Haleakala, Iao Valley, snorkel tours and many more activities and attractions are open. See our revised Maui vacation itinerary for ideas of what you can still see and do.
The Maui economy needs help
From what we’ve heard many tourist cancelled their plans to visit Maui. As such, we’ve heard of workers’ hours are being cut back and there are threats of layoffs.

Obviously the loss of Lahaina is tremendous. So, if you do travel to Maui, our advice is to travel with care and respect for the local people.
