A Maui Sunrise & Haleakala Summit Experience
The summit parking area is divided into 2 separate parking areas. The first parking area is the main area for viewing the sunrise at the crater. Here, expansive views into the crater provide an amazing foreground for the rising sun. On a clear morning, many will line the railing to view this spectacular vista in the cold morning air. With the lava rock walls of the Visitor Center just steps away, it’s easy to duck inside to warm up and view dozens of exhibits and maps of the mountains, including a three dimensional table mounted map of Maui.
It is recommended that you arrive about 30 minutes prior to sunrise to settle into a great spot. The air will be cold until the first rays of sunshine appear, so be prepared to wait in comfort.
