    Named after the legendary Duke Kahanamoku, a native Hawaiian who introduced surfing to the world, Duke's Beach House pays homage to the island's rich history and culture. As soon as you step through the doors of this oceanfront eatery, you'll be greeted by the soothing sound of waves and the sweet aroma of Hawaiian cuisine. The ambiance alone is enough to transport you to a tranquil state of mind, but it's the nightly live music that truly elevates the experience.

    The magic of live music


    If you’re looking for an authentic Hawaiian experience, few things can top watching the sunset over the ocean while listening to live music. Duke’s Beach House offers a rotating lineup of talented local musicians and bands who take the stage each afternoon and evening. Whether you're dining on the lanai just steps from the sand, sipping a cocktail or simply enjoying a sunset stroll along the beach, the live music provides a delightful backdrop to your evening.

    From traditional Hawaiian melodies to contemporary tunes, the performers at Duke's create a diverse and engaging playlist that caters to all musical tastes. The music is an invitation to connect with the island's culture, and you'll often find yourself swaying to the rhythm of the ukulele, steel guitar or soothing vocals. It's an experience that brings a sense of aloha spirit into every heart and is perfect for those looking to unwind after a day of exploring Maui's natural beauty.
