Beach
“While we love the close proximity to Charles Young beach, there are two other great beaches in walking distance from our unit. Of the three, we really enjoy Kam III for its soft sand and swimmer-friendly waters. It's also the largest of the Kihei beaches and is nearby lots of great shops and restaurants.”

Nature
“This is one of the most beautiful beaches on the planet. It’s all white sand and the water clarity will blow you away! I love to spend mornings there for a nice long walk and swim but sunsets they’re also incredible!”

Restaurant

“They are open for breakfast lunch and dinner. They have a great Taco Tuesday. Their strawberry margaritas are my favorite! Sit at the bar during happy hour or request an ocean view table and watch the sun go down. Great place for both!”

Bar

“This is adjacent to Kihei Kai Nani and is a favorite of mine. Bingo is played on Monday nights for cash and prizes. The food is great and the service is excellent. This place is the closest you will get to a Cheer's Bar on the island. It has a mix of tourists and locals and is ideal for the sports bar enthusiasts, especially during the NFL football season. And you can get seating to watch the sunsets while eating from their awesome menu. I love the Hawaiian Burger: avacado, bacon, pineapple, and bbq sauce....YUM!”

Mediterranean Restaurant
$$$
“Sarento's is a few miles south of KBS on Kihei Rd. The setting is spectacular, the food good. Happy hours start at 2 for drinks, at 3 for pupus (appetizers). Dinner is pricey, but good for celebrations. However, what we do sometimes is go for breakfast; the portions are big enough to split; the breakfast total comes out very reasonably - and you are right on a lovely beach. Enjoy. ”

Park
“Long stretch of white sand beach & crystal blue water. I just enjoy myself every time here. The water can be too rough for children some days though. No bathrooms, just the portable kind. Also no showers so bring a few gallons of warm tap water to leave in your car for a warm shower after. You’ll thank me later. 💛”
