Makawao self-catering accommodation is found a town on the island of Maui in the US state of Hawaii. It’s set inland, and is known for being the last major town before you reach the densely forested regions towards the east and north of the island.
Makawao vacation accommodation is set in an area that was long associated with Paniolos, or cowboys, and there are a number of remnants from this period to be seen around the town, including hitching posts dating to the 19th Century. As with much of the island, the town is considered an ideal destination for walking and other outdoor recreation. The Makawao State Forest for instance is a great place to go for mountain biking, with specially designated routes showcasing the beauty of the park. If you’re a golf fan then you’ll find yourself close to one of the best courses on the island, at the Pukalani Country Club. What make it especially appealing are its affordable green fees, as well as its spectacular landscapes, offering views of Mount Haleakala.
Haleakala can be reached from Makawao vacation rentals if you head a little further southeast. The volcano is preserved as part of the Haleakala National Park, and here you’ll experience a landscape that is different from any other on the planet. Much of the terrain cinder desert, which can be navigated via walking trails, but there is also shrubland, home to a wide variety of birdlife. At the volcano’s summit you’ll be able to see the crater, which is almost seven miles in diameter. Meanwhile on the coast you’ll have opportunities to take a whale watching or go snorkeling at one of a number of locations around the island.
For a different experience and landscape you could head west from Makawao vacation accommodation to the famous tourist destination of Lahaina. This town is known for its numerous bars, nightclubs and restaurants. It’s also an ideal place to come for a traditional Hawaiian Luau.
Makawao vacation accommodation is found in a region with a tropical climate, and two distinct seasons. Due to the varying elevation here, conditions can vary dramatically across the islands, but generally temperatures get up to the high-20s between May and October, when there’s also less precipitation. The period from November to March brings slightly lower temperatures and a little more rain.
Makawao self-catering accommodation no more than 15 minutes from Kahului Airport (OGG), which can be reached from the UK by first flying Delta or British Airways from London Heathrow (LHR) to Los Angeles (LAX), and then catching a connecting flight on to Maui.
