Easter in Maui: Family-friendly Things to Do

Annual Easter Egg Hunts

Many churches and resorts offer Easter egg hunts for children ages birth to 12. King’s Cathedral hosts one of the largest in Maui, and features prizes and live entertainment. Another large event, the Easter Carnival takes place at Queen Ka’ahumanu Center. Children can search for hundreds of eggs, get their faces painted, take photos and even splash in the fountain. Kids are encouraged to wear their swimsuits. For something close by, stay in a vacation rental resort in Maui and see what’s on the schedule.

Maui Churches and Historic Sites

Maui houses several churches, many of which have historical significance and showcase Hawaiian culture and Christian beliefs. For example, Waiola Church Lahaina is where Christianity began in Maui and held its first worship in 1823. Other historical churches in Maui include Holy Ghost Church, Kaahumanu Church and Makawao Union Church. Each have served the community since the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Easter Brunch

In addition to fun activities and services, Easter also brings the opportunity to enjoy brunch in Maui. Most major resorts serve Sunday brunch that feature a variety of fresh local cuisine and chef creations. Gazebo Restaurant at Napili Shores, Plantation House Restaurant, Paia Inn Cafe and Betty’s Beach Cafe have all earned rave reviews for brunch.

Watch the Sunrise

While visiting Haleakala Crater for sunrise ranks among the top things to do in Maui, not everyone can make the trip. Instead, set the alarm and venture to a nearby beach. An Easter sunrise over the ocean provides a glorious site and inspires travelers to start the day. Start planning to spend Easter in Maui and browse available vacation rentals in Hawaii.
