Well, you know what they say “A pineapple a day keeps the worries away”, so when I fly to Hawaii it needs to be as effortless as possible and that’s why the majority of my suitcase are pieces from our collection. From our turbinado dresses to our date pants, recently seen on fellow Canadian, Kaitlyn Bristowe in Hawaii, they can easily be transformed from day to night. BONUS!!!
Tawny and I will be sharing some of our favourite spots with you as an ongoing blog because lets face it there are just too many hot spots to talk about. If Maui is your next travel destination let Cobalt and Tawny help you explore more.
OK so one spot we always need to make an appearance at ,not only for the view, OMG! but the best Lobster Guacamole and Mai Tai’s ever. Mama’s Fish House is a must and please don’t forget to call ahead, especially for dinner. It’s not far past the little town of Paia before Ho’okipa (by the way we will talk about this town and Ho’okipa in future posts) LOVE!
Since Tawny and I both have places in Kihei we tend to frequent here most often. Kihei is a small town on the South Shore with large supply of hotels, condos, shops and houses. It actually used to be called Kama’ole ‘aina’ (barren land) . Kihei even has three beaches that bear that name. In Kihei we LOVE Paia Fish Market Restaurant. If you are looking to satisfy that hunger after a swim or paddle, go and enjoy their healthy eats and feel right at home. Some local surfers frequent here and you may just rub elbows with one, which is pretty cool. Be sure to check this place out. NOM NOM
If you are headed to the West Side of Maui then try and make it over to Merriman’s Maui, located in Lahaina. This oceanfront restaurant features farm to table cuisine in an elegant setting. The sunsets, cocktails, and cute outdoor patio, will not disappoint. You do not have to do dinner here as it is classified as Fine Dining and might not be in everyone’s budget but worth a drink or puu puus for sure at the bar or outside on their quaint patio.
Sunflowers in bloom anyone? A field of brightly colored sunflowers has drawn the attention of many passing motorists in Central Maui just in time for EARTH DAY. They were planted by Pacific Biodiesel in February as the company’s first biofuel crop on Maui. It’s approximately 12 acres and really is a site for the senses. We realize the hazard of stopping on the highway but… WE DID! A blanket of yellow sunflowers that all bend in the direction of the sun, ALOHA!!
Stay tuned for more on Maui and our adventures.
Much love and Aloha;
