S-Turns or Pohaku Park; is a short 3 to 5-minute walk from the condo. Public Parking; Porta Potties; Shade Trees; Grassy areas; Picnic Tables and BBQ; Beach access; spear fishing (regulated); near Kahana. This is our favorite close place to surf. The break is a couple of 100 yards out, but it is a good beginner/intermediate surfing spot.

Honolua Bay Preserve: Snorkeling. Drive north past Kapalua and you’ll see at the curve to the left in the road cars parked. Park and bring your towels and snorkel gear only! Hike down the dirt road through the “primeval forest” to the beach (short hike). This is a rock beach, not really good to stay all day, no restrooms, but the snorkeling is world class!

DT Fleming Beach: Left off main Highway by Kapalua; Lifeguard; full grass and tree park; plenty of public parking; restrooms; huge horseshoe beach for swimming and snorkeling; no road noise; best beach in the USA 2006; Shady lower parking lot; picnic tables; BBQ; Grass lawns and shade; Surfing. Sunny side and shady side to beach. Very close to the Ritz Carlton.

Napili Beach: Parking on street at Hale Napili; Napili village general Store; Snorkel Bobs; Beach has very little shade, but great place to stay the day, swim and snorkel (there’s one tree for shade!); there’s a restaurant for lunch, wonderful horseshoe beach.

 

Groceries

There is a Costco just outside of the Airport.  If you have a Costco Membership we recommend that you shop here.   Costco has mainland prices and you can buy all the things you need including bathing suits and beach towels.  They also have the cheapest fuel prices on the island.  

Island Grocery Depot is about 10 minutes away by car, in Lahaina.

When we are at the condo, we like shopping here for fresh veggies and fruit.  A great selection and they seem to be cheaper than Safeway and Times Markets.

Tamura's is just down the street from Island Grocery.    They have a great selection of beer, wine and spirits.  Some of the best prices on the island. 

Kind of like the Maui version of Trader Joe's. Great Poke here. Close to the condo. Prices are a little spendy.  Napili Market is about a mile away from the condo.

Whalers General Market is a  convenience store on the corner of Hoohui and Lower Honoapiilani Rd, about a block and a half from the condo.  It's where the Shell gas station is.  They have a little of everything you might need.  A little on the spendy side. 

Farmers Market – more like a co-op than a grocery store. Good selection of fruits and vegetables. Great local foods. Next to Snorkel Bob’s across from Honokowai Beach Park. 3 -minute drive from the condo or 30-minute walk.

 

Top Favorite things to do.

If you want to go on a great Sailboat adventure, this is it.  This is not your typical tourist boat ride. 

 

We love sailing with Captain Tony and his First Mate Niko. 

Take the helm, trim sails or just hang out.  You will absolutely fall in love with boat "Three Sheets" and the Crew.  A must do when visiting Lahaina!

Kapalua bostes the largest Suspension Bridge in Maui. 

 

They have four different zipline tours to  choose from.  They even have a night tour.
