Haleakala National Park

On the southeastern coast of Maui sits 33,000-acre Haleakala National Park, which was originally even larger when it was created in 1916, as it also included what later became Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. It's believed that the park's namesake yet dormant volcanic crater of Haleakala last erupted sometime between the 15th and 17th centuries. The enormous crater seen today stretches almost seven miles across.

Sunrise trips to Haleakala are particularly popular, with many headed to the crater's summit just to see the sun come up over the lunar-looking landscape. Nighttime trips offer their own spectacular displays, since extremely good visibility and atmospheric conditions allow travelers to see an array of stars and even the Milky Way. Aside from the volcanic sights in the park, there is a lush coastal area called Kipahulu, some of which is an off-limits nature reserve and some of which is open to visitors.

Practical Info

Haleakala National Park is open year-round and 24 hours a day, so you can get the full enjoyment of the night sky as it warms into sunrise. Just remember that even if it's warm at the beach, it'll be very cold at the summit of the crater, so pack for freezing temperatures. The Haleakala Visitor Center is open from sunrise to 3pm. You'll need to book a tour or rent a car to reach the park, as there's no public transport into the park itself. A three-day vehicle pass costs $10, including park entry for everyone in the car.
