You’ll Love These 5 Spots to Watch the Sunset on Maui! 

Haleakala National Park 

The first place that comes to mind when choosing the perfect spot to watch the sunset on Maui is the Haleakala National Park. Not only is it one of the most scenic places on the islandbut it also offers one of the most stunning views in the world! Picture this: you’ve just hiked through a beautiful tropical forest, and you are now sitting on top of a volcano with the people you love most. The colors are vibrant purple and orange, endlessly spreading in the infinite horizon. If it’s a cloudy day, you will feel like you’re floating on top of the world! 

Kapalua Bay 

If you’re looking for that picture-perfect sunset shot, then head over to Kapalua Bay Beach. You can spend the day there enjoying the beach and dipping your toes in the ocean, and end the afternoon with a gorgeous sunset photoshoot session. When twilight comes, the rocky outcrops transform into a real-life water mirror! Suddenlythe surroundings melt into a pool of gold and purple, and you are left enchanted by this magical spectacle.  

Keawakapu Beach 

Keawakapu Beach is another fabulous beach where sunsets are enchanting. This isolated beach stretches for over a half mile, offering countless spots where you can lay a blanket and enjoy your better half in privacy. Have a picnic on the pristine white sand and watch the orange sun melt into the dark waves of the ocean. The mountains on the horizon play with light in a mesmerizing way, and the black shadows mix with the clouds. Experience it all from the comfort of your beach towel! 

Lahaina Pali Trail 

You have to earn your sunset on the Lahaina Pali Trail. To get to the viewpoint, you first have to hike 500 vertical feet from the Ukumehame trailhead, but it’s worth every step! The panoramic view is breathtaking (probably the best on the island)and you can see whales from time to time. Don’t forget to bring a flashlight with you for the way back! 

Po’olenalena Beach Park 

Po’olenalena is another secret spot hidden between the South Maui resorts and the Big Beach area. Also known as Chang’s Beach, it’s a perfect evening spot to watch a gorgeous Maui sunset. Here is your chance to immortalize your Hawaiian vacation in front of an electric orange sky!
