Sunset is the perfect time for a traditional Hawaiian luau on the shores of Maui. Dine on kalua pig cooked in an imu (earth oven), haupia (coconut pudding) and poi (Hawaiian taro starch). Then settle down under the stars while you listen to live music and watch skilled performances of the hula. Some luau showcase dances from across Polynesia as well, like the frenetic Tahitian dance and the thrilling Samoan fire-knife dance.
The Old Lahaina Luau offers a popular sunset feast on spectacular oceanfront grounds right off Front Street. The Feast at Lele offers a gourmet luau, pairing wines with creative interpretations of traditional Hawaiian and Polynesian food. North of Lahaina in the Kaanapali area, the Royal Lahaina Resort Luau in the Royal Lahaina Resort and the Drums of the Pacific Luau in the Hyatt Regency Maui also present a seaside show by sunset. No visit to Maui is complete without experiencing a Hawaiian luau.
