As the sun begins its descent beyond the horizon, the entire vibe on Maui changes. The activity of the day begins to settle down and the nightlife starts to take over. Though the island keeps its low-key lifestyle and easy going pace, there is still quite a bit to do during the nighttime hours, and a night out on Maui is a great time for all. There are so many great restaurants to dine at, great luaus to attend, and even activities for you to take part in.
After spending the day exploring the island or enjoying the sunshine, you will want to freshen up and head back out to see what Maui at night is all about. No doubt about it, the very first thing that you will be in search of is dinner. Maui is known for a variety of fantastic restaurants with many different types of food, representative of all of the different cultures of Hawaii. Some of our favorite restaurants include:
- Mama’s Fish House
- Lahaina Grill
- Nalu’s South Shore Grill
- Morimoto Maui
- Mokeypod Kitchen
If you are in search of something to do, you are in luck. Just before sundown, sunset dinner cruise boats head out to sea, cruising along the coastline for a couple of hours of sightseeing and unwinding, while the setting sun provides a breathtaking backdrop for your evening. With a tropical cocktail in hand and a delicious meal prepared just for the boat, you will have an evening to remember during your trip.
One of the best options for enjoying a night out is to attend an authentic luau on Maui. There are plenty to choose from, but the luau that has the island buzzing is the Huakai Luau on the shores of Ka’anapali Beach, one of the truly spectacular settings on the island. The Huakai Luau is an intimate event, with limited seating and limited days to attend, this is an exclusive event that you don’t want to miss. The food is delicious, the setting perfect, and the performances are captivating.
Chances are that the nighttime will be your only chance for downtime during your visit, and after spending the days on the go, this will be a welcomed chance to take a break and unwind. Luaus are a great time and are very low-key, and you can never go wrong with dinner at a great restaurant and time spent just enjoying cool nighttime weather of Maui.
