Striking views of the sun dropping below the deep blue horizon replay every night at Pacific’O in Lahaina. No one here can resist the chance of seeing the green flash. And why not: Pacific’O boasts fine dining right on the beach, allowing diners to take in the all the Pacific’s beauty without getting sandy feet. What’s more, Pacific’O has its own farm on the slopes of Haleakala, giving its vegetables an especially delicious local flavor. 505 Front St., Lahaina; 808-667-4341; pacificomaui.com
