Inhale Intoxicating Beach Bar Air
Where there are beaches, there are beach bars, allowing travelers to soothe their souls by indulging in liquid refreshment. To the wafting sounds of slack-key guitar and hula celebration, order a Coco Freeze beneath the enormous banyan tree at the Moana Surfrider hotel on Waikiki Beach. Listen to live music at sunset on the outdoor lanai (patio) of the Four Seasons Hualalai, on the Big Island; make sure to try their Beach Tree Smash, with its hints of pear and lime. But a trip doesn’t have to be upscale to merit an intoxicating evening: Nearly all surf shacks and seaside bars will craft rum-heavy mai tais and other tropical adult treats.
