Koa 156

Koa 156 serves breakfast classics like pancakes, omelettes and benedict from 9am – 1pm, seven days a week. The plating and presentation at Koa 156 is almost as delicious as the food iteself. We recommend their Banana Cream French Toast or Bacon and Cheddar Omelette.

The Gazebo

Dine poolside and oceanfront at The Gazebo in Lāhainā! The Gazebo serves up classic breakfast fare at reasonable rates from 7:30am – 2pm daily. While just about anything you can order will be delicious, we especially love their omelettes. 

Down the Hatch

Down the Hatch is so good, Guy Fiari from Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives even made an appearance. Down the Hatch offers a fun twist on classic dishes, with menu items like the Lava Lava Shrimp & Avocado Omelet, Seared Ahi Benedict and Breakfast Nachos. Pair your meal with a Bloody Mary or Mimosa Carafe and you’ll be set! Breakfast is served from 7:30am – 10:30am daily.

Surfside Woodfire Pizza Kitchen

Don’t worry, we haven’t gone off the deep end with this one – the Surfside Woodfire Pizza Kitchen serves more than just pizza (though pizza for breakfast isn’t a bad idea)! Stop in for quick bites and grab-and-go items like yogurt parfaits, muffins, coffeee and Waffled Breakfast Sandwiches. Surfside Woodfire Pizza Kitchen opens at 11am, so stop on your way out to one of West Maui’s Best Hikes.

We love the Molokai Sweet Potato Frittata and the Home-Made Macadamia Nut Cinnamon Roll is to die for.

Mala Ocean Tavern

Whether you choose the outdoor patio or indoor seating next to the large windows, you’ll have spectacular views while dining at Mala Ocean Tavern. If you’re looking for a brunch made from high-quality and organic ingredients, then you should absolutely eat here. Mala Ocean Tavern serves brunch on Saturday and Sunday from 9am – 3pm. We love their Brioche French Toast, Huevos Rancheros or Spinach, Feta & Egg White Omelette. Try their Mimosa with Guava or Pineapple juice and you might just refuse to leave. 

Merriman’s Kapalua

This award-winning restaurant serves brunch just one day a week – and you won’t want to miss it. Dine in an open-air setting with the most stunning views (you might catch yourself thinking you’re in the water). Merriman’s Kapalua serves brunch on Sundays from 9:30am – 1pm, with live music from 10am – 1pm. They offer house-pressed vegetable juice, doughnuts cooked to order and french press coffee. If that doesn’t have you rounding up the family to get ready for brunch, then think about their Keahole Lobster Benedict, Prime Corned Beef Hash & Eggs, or their Organic Big Island Cinnamon French Toast.

Maui Stand Up Paddleboarding: Our Local Guide

Maui is the birthplace of stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), one of the fastest-growing sports. It’s low-impact and easy to learn, and it’s a great way to explore the waters of West Maui. Whether you’re seeking a guided tour or the perfect spot to take your SUP rental to Maui, use our guide to find the best solution for your needs.

Best Maui Stand-Up Paddleboard Spots

Kapalua Bay

Kapalua Bay is regularly ranked in the top ten beaches in Hawaii for its sand, marine life, and protected environment. For SUP, the protection from large swells and its calmer waters make the location an ideal spot. The white-sand beaches provide a great location for beginners to get their bearings on a paddleboard, and this area is not often impacted by rain and wind. Kapalua Bay is a popular area for resorts and is often a popular spot for beachgoers.

Napili Bay

If you’re a more experienced paddleboarder, Napili Bay is a beautiful spot ideal for the more adventurous paddler. Unlike Kapalua Bay, Napili Bay is known to experience more frequent wind and rain. Napili Bay is also a bit more secluded, offering a getaway from more populated areas.

Maliko Gulch

Maliko Gulch is located about one mile east of Hookipa Beach Park between Kuau and Haiku. It is a refuge from the wind and big surf and is ideal for stand-up paddleboarding. The Maliko Gulch offers a downwind run with low waves ideal for experienced paddlers or those just learning the ropes. There is a large community of downwind sports enthusiasts who take to these waters. Take advantage of the Maliko Shuttle, which makes it easier for paddlers to access without dropping off a car. 

SUP Yoga in Maui

Want to practice yoga on a paddleboard? There are several spots to experience Maui yoga paddleboarding, including Maui SUP Yoga and Maui Ocean Sports. Stand up paddleboard yoga offers an added balance challenge and a serene way to start the day on the water.

SUP Rental Maui
