How would you like to spend the winter holidays enjoying outside temperatures in the 70s and beautiful scenery that will leave you slack-jawed? If it all sounds beguiling, make plans to celebrate December in Maui at our Ka’anapali Beach resort. It will put you within driving distance of great places to celebrate the holidays:
Christmas Brunch or Dinner Cruise
(Lahaina and Ma’alaea Harbors)
Why not celebrate the big day with some of the biggest mammals to roam the ocean? This year, the Pacific Whale Foundation will once again offer everyone a chance to enjoy a two hour long, Christmas brunch or dinner cruise. The brunch cruise departs at 11:30 a.m. on Christmas day and the dinner cruise is expected to set sail at 5 p.m. The brunch excursion includes a buffet meal, select beverages and a free souvenir poster. The dinner cruise, on the other hand, is anticipated to include a plated, three course meal as well as live entertainment and select beverages too.
Hawaiian Christmas Luaus
The Christmas cruises are not the only way to enjoy a holiday meal near our Ka’anapali Beach resort. There are also many venues on the island that offer oceanside or indoor luaus. Some of the luaus include live demonstrations, musical entertainment, hula shows, complimentary drinks and access to special activities. The list of special activities frequently includes ice skating, visiting with Santa and checking out holiday light displays. When you arrive at our resort, we can help you narrow down your Christmas dinner choices and make advance reservations.
Hike at Night
(Waihe’e Coastal Dunes & Wetlands Refuge – Wailuku)
If you plan on arriving at our Ka’anapali Beach resort early in the month, you may want to get festive on foot as well. The best way to do that is to sign up for the Hawaiian Islands Land Trust’s guided, moonlight hike. It’s scheduled to take place on the evening of the 6th at the Waihe’e Coastal Dunes & Wetlands Refuge. The 277-acre refuge features a two-mile long trail that will take you along the coast and past many interesting sights, including wild animals and the remnants of long abandoned villages.
Shop and Sing-along
(Whalers Village – Lahaina)
You may want to fit in a bit of last minute shopping too. The Whalers Village has a history of being one of the best places to get into the holiday spirit. The merchants often offer great discounts and there is typically a festive demonstration, caroling or a show going on as well. We’ll be able to offer additional details about the holiday activities slated to take place at the village in December later on this fall.
