Eh South Maui Squatters!


To the squatter of South Maui: Shame on you for hiding behind the asinine law of “squatter rights.” How this “right” was passed by government officials is mind-boggling. You have no lease, refuse to pay rent and refuse to leave. You’re making it so my family (who HAVE a lease) cannot move into our new […]

Dolphins are great ambassadors of love, but sometimes humans who lack of […]

  Booze is a tricky thing. We’re living in a kind of Liquor Renaissance, but on Maui we have to tiptoe around the draconian rules of our county Department of Liquor Control. The mixology revival may merely be a backlash against the pre-bottled convenience mixes of the 1970s and ‘80s, or perhaps it ties sustainable […]

MauiTime Best of Maui BEST TOWN TO LIVE IN: Kihei #BOM2012


This is a tough one. Kihei isn’t exactly a walkable town–sidewalks are rare and portions of South Kihei Road more closely resemble a street racing course than a local thoroughfare–and it’s pretty much the best definition of “urban sprawl” I’ve yet found in Hawaii. Indeed, much of the South Maui coast is hidden from view […]

Teens Party On South Maui Beach!

Pau Hana: South Shore Tiki Lounge evokes the old polynesian tiki drink culture with new cocktail menu


Location: The Triangle, this is a term of endearment, and I think its short for a euphemism for Bermuda Triangle, because you may feel as though you were dropped into this mysterious zone after a few rounds in this area that is tightly packed with fun drinking and eating establishments. (AKA Kihei Kalama Village).
