Things to Know Before You Go
- There is a small admission fee to enter the farm, usually included on guided tours.
- Advance reservations are recommended for tours and required for picnic lunches. You must reserve picnic lunches 24 hours in advance.
- Due to steep slopes and narrow paths, the farm is not wheelchair and stroller accessible, but accommodations can be made to assist visitors with limited mobility.
- Photoshoots are popular, but professional photographers must pay an additional hourly fee.
How to Get There
The farm is located just 20 miles (32 kilometers) from Kahului—Maui’s airport and the starting point for most Maui vacations. Take Highway 37 out of town. Turn left on Highway 377 and then turn right onto Waipoli Road. Continue until you reach the farm. If you want to avoid driving, book a guided tour that includes round-trip transportation.
When to Get There
The best time to visit the lavender farm is in July and August. The majority of the lavender blooms in the summer but the farm also grows varieties that bloom all year round, so you can see the plant in bloom even if you visit in winter. The farm also has other botanicals that bloom throughout the year.
Visit the Summit of the Haleakala Crater
While the Aliʻi Kula Lavender Farm offers scenic views of its own, don’t miss the chance to visit the summit of the Haleakala Crater while you’re already on the volcano’s slopes. A twisting road takes you all the way to the volcano’s 10,023-foot (3,055-meter) summit. The best time to visit is at sunrise or after dark for stargazing.
