Beachside dining is a must-do while vacationing in paradise, as the atmosphere never disappoints.
And at Leilani’s On the Beach at Whalers Village, dining under the colorful market umbrellas is low key and soothing to the soul. From 11 a.m. to 10:30 p.m., the all-day menu complements the tropical-paradise setting.
Late risers may opt to start off with an extra special KP (for Kaanapali) Hillside, a cold-brewed Maui Oma coffee served with a house-made macadamia nut coconut syrup.
The perfect accompaniment to lunch may be the Michelle Wie — the female version of the Arnold Palmer — a refreshing fresh-brewed iced tea with house-made lemon-rosemary syrup.
Sandwiches, burgers, fresh fish tacos, island favorites and desserts (especially the signature Hula Pie) on Leilani’s beachside menu work easily into any day of building sandcastles and body surfing.
