I already wrote about our holidays in Maui a few times. Today I want to tell you about our adventures in Wailea and Makena.
The south was our last destination during our beautiful holiday in Maui. South Maui has the most sunniest and driest climate on the islands of Maui. Exploring the different types of climate is quiet interesting. In the south of Maui you will also find great beaches, luxury resorts and houses, nice golf places like the wailea golf club and impressive lava fields. As you can see it is worth visiting because there are a lot of things to see and do.
Wailea golf club
One of the most popular places in the south of Maui is Wailea. You can find five nice hotels in Wailea. Some of them are really luxury, like the Grand Wailea Resort Hotel &Spa www.grandwailea.com/ and the Four Seasons Resort Maui in Wailea https://www.fourseasons.com/de/maui/ . You can also find a lot of very good restaurants there. I think you already realized that for me personally Wailea is a very nice place – but let´s go back to the restaurants: As I mentioned, they are really good there. I can highly recommend the restaurant Pita Paradise https://www.pitaparadisehawaii.com/ . You will get Mediterranean food there. I have already been there many times and I have always been satisfied. Last time we ordered the catch of the day, which was fresh tuna. They served the fish grilled (medium, for sure) with vegetable. And guess what? It was so delicious that my husband ordered it twice.
Shopping in Wailea
Besides going out for lunch or dinner I can also recommend shopping in Wailea. You will find a lot of small shops and shopping malls there. Even though they are quiet small they are really nice. “The Shops” at Wailea https://theshopsatwailea.com/ is a mall with restaurants and shops. They offer a world-class and aregularentertainment program, which is definitely worth to visit. If you are at “The Shops” you can go to my favorite boutique. It is called “The Enchantress Boutique”. Even Paris Hilton came here for shopping.
You can also find one of the best cafeshops at “The Shops” at Wailea, which is called “Lappert’s Hawaii” www.lappertshawaii.com/ I think that they have the best coffee on the island! You should definitely try it.
The beautiful nature of South Maui
There is another popular place in the south of Maui: Makena. Makena is known for it´s big and beautiful beaches. Makena beaches are the perfect place for relaxing, having long walks and swimming. There are no waves and the water is warm and clear. Makena beach in Maui is a very nice place.
Next time I will let you know about Kihei village and trip through the lava fields.
