When planning your trip to Maui, you may not think to include stargazing in the itinerary. This would be a mistake. There are some small areas that the city lights interrupt the beauty of the stars, but most of the island of Maui has a clear shot of a breathtaking sky littered with stars leaving tourists filled with wonder and amazement. Gemini Sailing Tours is here to share some of the best places you can visit to find such skies in Maui.
Kalahaku Overlook Stargazing
While the Kalahaku Overlook is a popular place to catch the Hawaiian sunsets, it is often overlooked as the perfect stargazing point. This 9,300 ft high overlook offers a feeling of privacy and romance as it feels like you are the only people able to see such a sight. It can get chilly with the ocean breeze, so don’t forget your jacket to keep you warm.
Honomanu Bay at Night
Many people have the Road to Hana on their must-see list when coming to Maui, and the Honomanu Bay is found on that trek. With black sand beaches, this place holds a beauty that is hard to find anywhere else. This is a private place to catch a glimpse at the night sky with only a few nighttime fishermen accompanying you.
Lipoa Point Stars
Park your car at Lipoa Point to find yourself lost in the night sky from its hood. The view is so outstanding from Lipoa Point that developers have been trying to build for years, but haven’t been successful thanks to conservationists. Lucky for you, you can still enjoy the night sky uninterrupted because of this effort.
Star Lookout at Keokea
In the rural setting of Keokea, you will find the most romantic cabin with a wraparound porch that offers the perfect place to see the night sky. The silence is exactly what some people are in search of on their getaway and the stargazing is just the cherry on top. If you are looking for a secluded spot, this is it.
Hyatt Astronomy Star Tours
If you are looking for someone to explain the stars you see and what they mean, the top of the nine story rooftop of the Hyatt is the perfect place. There is a 16” telescope referred to at the “Great White” that allows you to see things you have never seen before with the naked eye. Travelers hope to see Hokule’a which signifies the latitude of Hawaii when it can be seen directly overhead. For the vast knowledge only professionals can offer, try the Hyatt Tour of the Stars.
