  • The Sting of Rental Cars and Box Jellyfish

    It won’t be a Maui weekend, after all.  In an economic counter-move, rental car companies on Maui recently reduced their fleet.  That means, they shipped cars off the island.  I am sure they do this kind of thing on the mainland all the time.  As seasons and travel flavors change, executives move their cars around like grocers use just-in-time inventory practices to stock shelves.  Unfortunately, in the middle of the Pacific, when tourism picks up again, like it always does in February and March, there aren’t enough cars to go around.

  • Waiohai Beach

    The first hotel built in Poipu in 1962 overlooked this beach, adjacent to Poipu Beach Park. Actually, there's little to distinguish where one starts and the other begins other than a crescent reef at the eastern end of Waiohai Beach. That crescent, however, is important. It creates a small, protected bay—good for snorkeling and beginning surfers. If you're a beginner, this is the spot. However, when a summer swell kicks up, the near-shore conditions become dangerous; offshore, there's a splendid surf break for experienced surfers. The beach itself is narrow and, like its neighbor, gets very crowded in summer. Amenities: parking. Best For: surfing; sunrise; sunset.

  • Wailua Beach

    Some say the first Polynesians to migrate to Hawaii landed at Wailua Beach. At the river's mouth, petroglyphs carved on boulders are sometimes visible during low surf and tide conditions. Surfers, bodyboarders, and bodysurfers alike enjoy this beach year-round thanks to its dependable waves (usually on the north end); however, because of Hawaii's northeast trade winds, these waves are not the "cleanest" for surf aficionados. Many families spend the weekend days under the Wailua Bridge at the river mouth, even hauling out their portable grills and tables to go with their beach chairs. The great news about Wailua Beach is that it's almost impossible to miss; however, parking can be a challenge. The best parking for the north end of the beach is on Papaloa Road behind the Shell station. For the southern end of the beach, park at Wailua River State Park. Amenities: Parking; showers; toilets. Best For: swimming; surfing; walking; windsurfing.
