Leilani's on the Beach
2435 Kaanapali Pkwy, Lahaina, HI 96761, USA
Leilani's On The Beach Watch a steady stream of pedestrians flow along Kaʽanapali Boardwalk from a catbird seat on the lanai. This breezy, open-air beach bar sources from over 40 family-owned Maui farms and fishing boats. Chefs transform this bounty into pūpūs (appetizers) like panko-crusted calamari strips and Sriracha-guava chicken wings. Fruity cocktails dominated the menu, including Leilani’s star turn: the Hibiscus Paloma with Patrón Añejo tequila, housemade flower syrup and white grapefruit juice with a splash of lime. The bar still has a robust collection of draft beer, though, and a smattering of affordable, not-too-edgy wines. Try the Lokelani for a zippy local take on rosé, grown on the slopes of Haleakalā volcano by the island’s only winery. Make sure to save room for the original hula pie, a chocolate cookie crust topped with macadamia nut ice cream.
