At over 10,000 ft, Haleakala is a popular spot for watching the sunrise on Maui, true to its name which means "House of the Sun" in Hawaiian. This dormant volcano is located on the east side of the island and is a must-see for anyone visiting Maui. Explore the beauty of the mountain's volcanic cinders & unique plant life during the day or get there before dawn to witness the crater being illuminated by a multitude of warm colors that stretch to the horizon.
Tips for Visiting Haleakala National Park

  • The Haleakala National Park is open daily, 24 hours a day, including holidays, except during severe weather events.
  • The average temperature at the summit of Haleakala is 30°F (-1°C) & weather conditions are often unpredictable.
