Top-notch entertainment and perfectly prepared cuisine make this a premiere Maui attraction. A little island history: Lahaina used to be known as Lele. In those long-ago days, gala royal feasts were held along the beach. They featured the best food, music and dance of the island. This is a reconstruction of the ancient royal celebrations. Executive Chef James McDonald presents a mouth-watering array of specialties representing all the regions of Polynesia.
Historic Front Street is the main drag in Lahaina, West Maui. It runs along the shoreline, overlooking the ocean. The buildings along the road are reminiscent of Disneyland's Main Street, with colorful wooden buildings perched atop the sandy beach. You can find almost anything you would want or need here. Looking for jewelry? Original Maui Divers is your best bet. Souvenir junkies would do well to browse the super-sized Hilo Hattie's for a unique trinket. Art galleries are prevalent here, and at Simon-Jon Gallery you can purchase some island flair to brighten up your home. For shopping with a more sophisticated air, 505 Front Street is on a quieter stretch of Front Street, and home to many upscale boutiques and acclaimed restaurants. A stroll along Front Street is a pleasant way to spend the day in between catching sun and waves.
