MAUI

I'm back! Okay... so I've been back. Anyway, I just wanted to share a few of my favorite places from this trip to Maui in case anyone is interested...

Napili Bay - this is the area where we stayed... I would completely recommend staying here
Merriman’s - I can't say enough good things about this restaurant on Kapalua Bay... I want to go there every night to watch the sunset on the patio by the fire pit...
The Coffee Store - must try the iced electric brown cow
Sea House Restaurant - in Napili Kai with the yummiest breakfast...love the crater pancake
Nuage Bleu - the town of Paia was one of my favorite places in Maui, and this shop was one of my favorite places in Paia.... I had a hard time choosing which piece of jewelry I loved most
Paia Fish Market - fresh fish tacos.... super laid back
Flatbread Company - kalua pork flatbread in a lively atmosphere, so good
Mama’s Fish House - we didn't get a chance, but I would love to eat (and stay) here
Road to Hana - definitely do it once.... be sure to hike down to the 3 bears waterfall, stop for homemade ice cream (at mile 27 ½), and visit the black (and the red) sand beach
Vintage European Posters - a gem amid the overwhelming Lahaina art scene
Road North - we loved the drive around the north side from Kapalua to Paia (there is lots to do just north of Kapalua)... although we heard some rental cars are banned from driving there
Molokini Crater - we apparently had perfect conditions and I am a water baby, so I loved it
Black Rock - it may be crowded, but this is the spot to swim with turtles
