Royal Lahaina Resort on Maui publishes an article that overviews the island's climate.
Lahaina, HI -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/11/2015 -- Royal Lahaina Resort is a premium vacation retreat on the Western side of the island of Maui. This four star, first class resort was built on the oceanfront, and first opened its doors in 1962. Royal Lahaina is situated on grounds that span 27 acres and abut a several hundred yard stretch of smooth sandy beach; Kaanapali Beach, as it is called, is widely known for the quality of its sand, and has appeared on lists of the finest beaches in America.
Royal Lahaina Resort publishes a number of informative articles that aim to provide useful Maui vacation advice, present interesting facts and stories about the town of Lahaina and Maui in general, and introduce prospective visitors to the area's attractions and activities. The articles range widely in topics, covering history, food, outdoors activities, vacation planning, and more.
The latest article talks about the climate of Maui. While Maui is not a large island, the geography is such that it contains a multitude of micro-climates; sometimes, areas with vastly different meteorological conditions can exist right next to each other. The article talks about Maui's tropical location and how that allows the island to enjoy temperatures in the 70s and 80s year round.
The variation in weather patterns is due to the mountainous terrain of Maui, which intercepts clouds and causes heavy rainfall on the windward side; Lahaina, as well as the Royal Lahaina Resort, are located on the leeward side of Maui's peaks, which means that the area doesn't see nearly as many overcast or rainy days as East Maui.
The article talks about the implications of Maui's weather patterns for vacationers, and makes some basic recommendations; while overall, temperatures and precipitation are fairly stable, Maui still experiences seasonal differences in weather - winds change direction, the surf is bigger on one side of the island in the summer, and the opposite side in the winter. For this reason, if the reader is considering putting in a reservation for an all inclusive Maui vacation package, the article recommends researching seasonal conditions beforehand.
