Just another day in paradise with a little bit of excitement mixed in. At 10:07PM HST Friday January 14th, the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center issued a Tsunami Warning Alert for all of the Hawaiian Islands. The warning was issued after a massive volcanic eruption near one of the Tongan islands in the South Pacific.

Everyone knows thing on Maui operate on “Island Time” and the opening of the new Chick-Fil-A is no exception. As reported by Maui Now, the Chick-Fil-A restaurant coming to Kahalui near Maui’s main airport is still on track for a 2022 opening, albeit a little delayed. The planned Spring Grand Opening won’t be happening, but with any luck by mid-Summer both tourists and locals alike will be able to enjoy all the fried chicken goodness that Chick-Fil-A is known for on the Mainland. We’ll keep you posted as the opening gets a little closer.
Since seeing a tourist “explosion” starting on Valentines day weekend in February of 2021, things haven’t slowed down one bit with vacationers coming to Maui. Maui High season is off to a great start as the resorts and beaches on the island paradise are as busy as ever. Who could blame them with the great weather that Maui has to offer year round.
If you're planning to come to Maui during the Winter months, it's considered High Season - think BUSY! So if you haven’t already made your hotel or condo reservations, you may want to do so before you hop on that plane. Once the High Season on Maui starts, it’s often difficult to locate quality, let alone *any* accommodations. Pluse now that travel restrictions have started to loosen, Maui is definitely the place to be this winter. Of course there are people who have cancelled their plans after rethinking what things are like with the most recent “variant” of COVID in play. But just know that occupancy levels are remaining high and are expected to do so for the foreseeable future.
