Quote: We took a great trip to this beautiful island, even if it was kinda pricey. You have to go to the Old Lahaina Luau - it was awesome. The beaches on Ka'anapali were great. Westin Maui was pretty.

The highlight was just driving and periodically stopping at spots to check out the ocean and lava rock. We should have done more of that for sure. The road to Hana is great, and seeing Nakalele Blowhole was awesome.

You can't beat eating a hamburger right on the ocean. It was beautiful! The service was good, and the food tasted great. They are a stickler about lunch hours, and try to get a seat by the ocean at 11am sharp!

This is a small chain all over Maui. We ate there once, but wished we found it earlier in the trip. We enjoyed the food. We noticed that celebrities must go there to dine. It seems like fast food, but the food is good. I liked the chicken nachos the best.

The atmosphere makes you feel welcome and like you are attending a luau of your own. The food was good and authentic as it can be. We sat on the traditional may seating, and this isn't for those who can't get up and down very easily, but it was beautiful and the dress was amazing. The dancing was great, and we loved how they told the story.

Nakalele Point

Attraction | "Nakalele Blowhole"

It is absolutely breathtaking, with the most beautiful sounds of the ocean and views. There is cleanest air you will ever breathe. This point is where you will see the ocean come crashing in and cause pressure to build. The pressure will release under rocks and provide spray through an opening in the rocks. We spent probably a good hour there just staring at the spray and trying to determine how much force it really needs.
