If you got enough time on your hand try the sunrise, if cannot the sunset is also awesome.

I think we will def stop by that tavern, I love clams, my gf loves guacamole, so I think even our meal has been picked out already, haha

one thing though, that guacamole looks like it is sitting in some brownish sauce, whats up with that? or is that just the pic?
oops, should have said that in the bowl with the edamame guac is salsa. mala ocean tavern's website is here. Yelp.com reviews are here.

if you have time, check out big beach, which is past the super-chic hotels in wailea. if you like to sunbathe au naturel, go to the adjacent little beach (which, according to my maui friend, is actually called "small beach," and only tourists call "little beach,") which you reach by clambering over a rocky little hill on the right of big beach (right if you're facing the ocean).

if you're into beer, consider going to the maui brewery, which is up north of lahaina. they serve beer there that they don't sell anywhere else. my favorite is their coconut porter, but at the brewery, i got to enjoy their father damien abbey ale and milk of amnesia stout. their french dip and goat cheese burger were very good.

for cheap and good eats, i suggest las pinatas in kahului. we shared the fish "kitchen sink" burrito and were stuffed. the best part about this place is that it's relatively cheap (aforesaid burrito was about $9) and there is a plethora of homemade salsas.

if you're into wine, check out the tedeschi vineyards in ulupalakua. don't expect high quality grape wines, but go there for the history and to sample their pineapple splash (you can sample three wines for free, per person). the drive to ulupalakua is beautiful, but consider it only after you've done the drive to hana. oh, when driving hana highway, make sure to be aware if a line of cars is developing behind you. if so, please be considerate and pull over to the right to let them pass. some of them might be locals who aren't interested in a scenic drive, but actually have someplace to go.

yup, I have plenty more. I loved my time on Maui, and you would be doing yourself a disservice if you did not take the chance to witness first hand one of the most inspiring thing life can offer.

ok, now you guys have given the names of places to visit and what not.

how about spots with some good food??
I really like trying lots of different foods, so anywhere that will have alot of different hawaiian foods would be great.

now I know, a lot of places will have hawaiian food, but I like GOOD food!! haha

On Oahu:
Chart house for pupus is a must(imo). Best pupus and sunset on the Harbor. God, I could go for some garlic chicken right now...

If you make it up country on the weekend, garlic shrimp and huli huli chicken from the roadside makes a great snack anytime.

for an upscale dining experience, either Stage at the Design center, or Marvo's.

For great Italian, cough*shameless plug*cough, Arancino Di Mare, at the ,arriott Waikiki or on beachwalk, well put together, clen, yummy food. the "owners" pizza is my fave, along with the gnocci.

As an outsider who nevetheless has worked there for many months on several occasions. You Can't go wrong in the International Market for food. It is basically cooked in front of you.
Oahu is a rock designed by Your God to cook on You will not go wrong.

The hospitality and service is second to none. If you fancy a drink and a snack ? Go to Kelly O'Neills on Lewars > Mention my name (I used to sing and play guitar there). I will be most surprised if they charge you.

Have a load of fun.

Cheers

Wink Stairways, walkways and drive-ins....

The pali Lookout is a turn-off at the crest of the Pali Highway, between Honolulu and the Windward side. Aka Nu`uanu Pali.

From Honolulu turn off just before the tunnels. From Kailua/Kaneohe, go through the tunnels and take the switchback.

Below the viewing area, the old Pali road (on winday days) has wind you can LEAN INTO! About a quarter mile down on the Old Pali Road is a small valley to the right with a short hike up to a very spiritual area, FWIW.... go with respect, if you go.

Also, this is where King Kamehameha finally conquered Oahu - pushed Kahekili's troops over the cliff, or something.

Also, I recommend at least half a day at the Bishop Museum, just off Kalihi Street. You won't regret it.

The trip up to Haleakala is almost as awesome as the summet. Watch out for the flightlessd nene goose, and enjoy the 'cowboy' environment.

Also, there's a Kundalini yoga retreat near Iao Needle, if you're into that.

I spent quite a few years in CT before coming back here. Greenwich, Stamford, Norwalk, Ansonia, New Haven, Middletown, Hartford and Glastonbury.... Where you from?
