High tide and low tide on Maui each come twice per day. Tides are caused by the position of the Moon, whose gravity pulls on the Earth’s oceans to raise the tides. The times of high and low tide are similar on various parts of Maui. When the tide is high, Maui’s beaches are narrower, and when the tide is low, the beaches are wider. In some areas, coral under the ocean near the beach is exposed during low tide.
