Oct 18th, 2017 – Ho’okipa Beach On The Windward Side
Aloha – Enjoy Maui!
Beaches. Maui has some of the best beaches in the world. Napili Bay and Kapalua Bay on the west side of the island are popular snorkel locations, and everyone loves Baby Beach in Lahaina. Honolua Bay is also awesome for snorkeling, and Slaughterhouse Beach nearby is a tourist favorite. Don’t forget to try D.T. Fleming Beach Park.
In Paia on the windward side of Maui, there’s Baldwin Beach that is popular with both locals and visitors to Maui, and Ho’okipa Beach is just past the town of Paia. Just before Hana is the famous Black Sand Beach.

Eating & Drinking. Oh, yea. You’ve also got to eat and drink while visiting Maui. Well, for breakfast The Gazebo in Napili is a “must-do tradition,” along with the Kihei Café. For pizza, try Prison Street Pizza in Lahaina or Dollie’s Pub & Café in Napili.
There’s a lot of good burger places in Lahaina, along With Honu Seafood and Pizza and Lulu’s Lahaina Surf Club. Also, consider an upscale dining experience at Ruth’s Chris Steak House on Front Street.
In the upcountry town of Makawao are two good places to eat – Casanova Italian Restaurant and Makawao Steak House. Stop at this “Hawaiian cowboy” town on your way down from a sunrise visit at Haleakala Crater.
Spanky’s Riptide sports bar is open again and the well-known Paia Fish Market has opened a restaurant on Front Street in Lahaina. Also in Lahaina, stop by The Dirty Monkey for a large selection of craft beers and specialty whiskeys.
