Maui is the perfect romantic getaway. Known for it's beaches, romantic sunsets and plentiful activities, there's something for everyone on Maui.
Contemporary sushi and new wave Asian inspired dishes served in a lively setting is what makes Sansei Seafood Restaurant and Sushi Bar a critic’s favorite. Wine Spectator called Sansei “Endless innovation with a strong Japanese accent.” Bon Appetit named the restaurant one of their “Favorite Asian Restaurants” and one of “America’s Best Sushi Bars.”
Sansei’s sushi chefs are known for their highly imaginative creations, like their signature Panko Crusted Ahi Roll, and the famous Kapalua Butterfly Roll, a colorful delight of salmon, crab, shiromi, and fresh vegetables. A multiple first place winner at the annual Taste of Lahaina, Sansei’s Asian Shrimp Cake with Ginger Lime Butter and Cilantro Pesto, is a delicate shrimp cake encased in crispy Chinese noodles.

The Gazebo Restaurant is a small, hidden, out-of-the-way restaurant, but Maui residents and tourists have found it, and it is very popular.
From the Napili Bay walk out to the beach and walk about 50 yards south. There's a pathway to the Napili Shores. The Gazebo is located next to the pool.
The view at the Gazebo is fabulous, since it is right on the ocean adjacent to Napili Bay. Gazebo has the same menu through all the hours they are open, serving only breakfast and lunch from 7:30 AM to 2:00 PM. There are great pancakes, omelettes, salads, sandwiches, burgers and more.
There is always a waiting line to get in so expect to wait outside for 20 to 45 minutes, depending on how crowded Maui is at the time you go. But the ocean view is great while you are waiting.

The Napili Bay Beach is considered by many to be the finest beach in Maui.
A 1/4 mile crescent shaped beach of golden sand. A coral reef runs through the center of the Bay providing excellent snorkeling year-round.
A beach with all of the activities that one can imagine. There is great snorkeling on the north and the south end of the beach with hundreds of fish and frequent turtle sightings. When the surf is up you can grab a boogieboard and ride from the reef in the center of the bay all the way to the beach.
With no buildings taller than the palm trees, the Napili Bay has an old Hawaii laid-back feel.
The Napili Market is a local store in Napili that meets most grocery needs. They have all of the main food selections, including some choice selections.
The prices run high but they have a fine selection of high quality produce and local seafood.
It's a good quick stop in Napili for items that you forgot to pick up at Costco, Safeway or Star Market.
Hours: 6am - 11pm, 7 day/week, 365 days/year.

Snorkeling in Napili Bay is a joy anytime of the year.
A coral reef passes through the center of an appealing day creating an environment for all kinds of sea life to live.you'll see hundreds of fish and almost always spot a turtle hanging out in the reef. The best time to go is early morning before 10 a.m. where the visibility is fast and all of the various sea life is feeding on the reef.
For those that are a bit more adventurous you can go around the south end of the bay and be greeted by at least half a dozen turtles who have made there home here over the years.
