Old Lahaina Lu’au Dancers
Some of the best sunset dinner spots on Maui are located in West Maui. Aside from being one of the best places on Maui to watch the sun go down, Lahaina, Kaanapali and Kapalua also boast some of the best restaurants on the island.
One of the most popular tourist beaches on Maui is Kapalua Beach, a shimmering crescent of golden sand lined with palm trees. Well-placed lava breakers make Kapalua Beach an excellent beach for sunbathing, swimming and relaxing. The best snorkeling is on the north side of the bay, but be sure to stay within the bay, as strong currents outside may be hazardous.
Merriman’s Kapalua: Dine in one of the most stunning oceanfront locations on Maui, directly on the point overlooking Kapalua Bay. Here Chef Peter Merriman brings his unique style of Hawaii Regional Cuisine to Maui. A pioneer in the “Farm to Table” concept, Peter serves only the freshest products, most of which are locally grown or caught, using sustainable methods.
Starnoodle Lahaina: Asian shared plates, noodle dishes & sake cocktails, delectable desserts, a full Sake Bar, in an airy, light, wood-trimmed space, that is renowned for friendly, attentive service.
Old Lahaina Lu’au: The Old Lahaina Lu’au takes great pride in presenting an authentic Hawaiian Lu’au. Enjoy an evening of traditional Hawaiian cuisine, music, cultural dances and demonstrations.

Duke’s Beach House Kaanapali: Duke’s Beach House honors renowned waterman Duke Kahanamoku. He was a famous Olympic swimmer, the father of modern day surfing, but he may be best known for sharing the genuine spirit of Aloha. Duke’s Beach House is just a few short steps from the sand. You can enjoy sweeping views of the Pacific, framed by the islands of Molokai and Lanai, along with a casual, nostalgic ambiance.
