Which of the Hawaiian Islands wereaffected by the wildfires?

Last year’s wildfires mainly affected Lahaina in West Maui. While some fire-affected areas remain closed to the public, the island of Maui and the rest of the Hawaiian Islands are open and encouraging mindful visitation. Several restaurants, businesses, and activities in Lahaina Town are also open and welcoming visitors. 

How do I respectfully travel to Maui right now?

Our communities are still healing from the disaster we have experienced. Respectfully visiting Maui right now means visiting with aloha and empathy. Expect a little wait time for food or other services. Approach conversations mindfully and be sensitive as to avoid triggering memories that survivors may not be ready to share. Should a Maui resident open up to you, your comfort and understanding are much appreciated. Respectful travel also includes the following: staying away from fire-affected areas, supporting and buying local, participating in a volunteer experience, and donating to those affected.
