We admit, we haven’t blogged as much as we wanted to in the past, but we’re making a conscious effort to do better. We look forward to sharing all the goodness this island paradise has to offer and helping you have the best Maui vacation ever!
To start, we wanted to tell you some of our favorite resources for news, events, and general information on Maui.
Here are some of our go-to Maui sources (in no particular order):
Websites and Blogs
CalendarMaui.com – Touted as “Maui’s most comprehensive community calendar,” this site lists small and large events throughout the county.
MauiNOW – When we want to know about news specific to Maui, this is where we go. You may like their articles on upcoming events, refreshingly honest restaurant reviews, and discounts on dining and activities.
http://www.mauimagazine.net – The website for Maui No Ka ‘Oi Magazine would be a great one to browse when you’re daydreaming about Maui.
A Maui Blog – Check out “Favorite Posts” and “Where Locals Eat Maui.”
Maui Jungalow – “This blog is about giving real life information for people who live on Maui or people who are curious about what Maui is like, when you scratch under the surface.”
MauiTime, released every Thursday, is Maui’s only locally owned independent newspaper and is free. This is one newspaper that we always enjoy reading. Visitors may find “This Weeks Picks”, “Da Kine Calendar”, and even the ads particularly helpful.
MauiTime’s website is currently being renovated, but they have various blogs including MauiFeed (news), MauiVents (events), and MauiDish (food & drink).
MAUIWatch – The first place we go to check whether there’s been an accident, natural disaster that might affect Maui, or any other emergency is actually this MAUIWatch Facebook page. They have changed news reporting by getting quicker info directly from fans and followers.
