March 17, 2017

9th Annual Olukai Ho‘olaule‘a

Are you on the island in April? If you are, be sure to check out the annual Olukai Ho‘olaule‘a. Ho‘olaule‘a is the Hawaiian word for celebration and gratitude. Every year in May, locals and visitors gather to share this gratitude on Maui’s North Shore at Kanaha Beach Park. This year, the celebration will take place on April 29th and 30th 2017.

Kanaha Beach Park is located on the North Side of the island and features two-miles of beautiful sandy beach with stunning views of the West Maui Mountains. The beach is very popular with locals and water sport enthusiasts. The North Side of the island and Kanaha Beach in particular is world famous for windsurfing and draws people from around the world; here you can watch some of the best windsurfing and kiteboarding.

The annual event gathers friends and family to enjoy canoe sailing, surfing, ancient Hawaiian games, a luau, hula, live music and of course, the beach. Bring your family, friends, neighbors and kids, there is something for everyone to enjoy! In addition, the Olukai Ho‘olaule‘a features elite competition.

The Maliko Downwind Run hosts the world’s best SUP, OC1 & OC2 paddlers. These paddlers race the legendary 8-mile downwind run starting in the Maliko Gulch. The Gulch is protected from the northeast tradewinds. Once you hit open ocean, the wind comes out in full force. It typically takes between an hour-and-a-half to two-and-a-half hours. The winner will receive a $15,000 dollar prize. If you would like to register, do so before April 14, 2017.

The Ama Olukai Foundation hosts the event and seeks to preserve the cultural heritage and Aloha spirit of Hawaii. In keeping with the event, Executive Director, Dan Mclnerny says “the Hawaiian Islands are the crown jewel of the Pacific, where the ‘aina (land) and kai (sea) are very much a part of its culture. It is home to a warm and generous people who value the moment, talking story and celebrating life.”

Food Trucks on Maui

Food Trucks on Maui

Food trucks are growing in popularity and when you find “the one,” it’s like striking gold! Luckily Maui has its share of delicious and affordable food trucks to visit.

By far our favorite food truck convenient to  your stay in Kihei or Wailea is the Kina'ole Grill Food Truck. It can be found on Alanui Ke'ali'i Street right across from the Kamaole Beach Park I, which also happens to be a lovely spot to enjoy your food. You can find park tables here to eat at or bring a towel and enjoy your food with a beach view.

The menu at Kina'ole is delightfully simple. Meals are plate lunch style. Options include Pulled Pork, Panko MahiMahi, Seared Ahi, Coconut Shrimp, Crispy Calamari, Spicy Garlic Shrimp and Garlic Shrimp Scampi. This food truck is able to accept cash and credit, so just grab your wallet and you're set!

Heading into town is a food truck experience! Just across the street from Costco on Haleakala Highway is a large parking lot where you’ll find food truck heaven. Cards are accepted here. Should you have a craving for Thai food while on Maui, we highly recommend Thai Mee Up. It offers Thai iced tea, various curries such as Panang and plate lunches like Fried Pork Ribs or Chicken Pad Thai.

Of course, while on Maui you’ll want to have poke (Hawaii’s famous raw fish salad) and for this you have the Like Poke? food truck. Like Poke? offers every kind of Poke flavoring you can imagine plus extras like Ahi Katsu and Spicy Fried Poke.

Heading westward to Lahaina is a local favorite, Shark Pit, which offers Asian fusion food. Offerings include everything from a Garlic Shrimp Salad to Kalbi Chicken to a definitely one of a kind Furikake Dusted Corn on the Cob. Shark Pit is a great place to try Hawaii specialties. This includes their Loco Moco Fried Rice, Thai Curry Chow Fun and of course, homemade Malasadas. Malasadas are a Portuguese dessert made of dough deep fried in oil and coated with sugar. An absolute must on your vacation!

Hungry yet? We certainly are. Get ready to eat delicious food, soak in the sun and enjoy vacation. Get started now by booking your vacation rental in beachy South Maui.
