One of our favorite things about living in paradise, and there are many things we love, is the weather. Never turning too cold and rarely becoming uncomfortably hot, it’s pretty much perfect here year-round. But there will be days that are warmer than others, summer days where the promise of something cool and refreshing may bring a happy smile to visiting guests, and on those days, this guide to cool treats to beat the heat during a Maui summer will be your best friend!
The simplest treat of all is the taste of an ice cream cone hurriedly lapped at before it melts in a sticky mess on your hand and wrist. While there are plenty of delicious spots to be found on the island, one of our very favorites is Lahaina Ice Cream Parlor at 693 Front Street in Lahaina. Offering a giant selection of ice creams, sorbets, shaved ice, yogurts, and smoothies, if you can’t find a flavor that appeals to you here, you probably never will!
Whether this is your first trip to the islands or your hundredth, one cool treat that should be at the top of your itinerary is a sip of a cold and frothy tropical beverage like the ones served at Tommy Bahamas, located at 3750 Wailea Alanui Drive in Kihei. It may be somewhat surprising to learn that Tommy Bahamas sells more than colorful Hawaiian shirts, but you’ll soon discover that their restaurant in the Shops at Wailea is very popular. Could it be because of their Coconut Cloud Martini? We suspect this is so, and when you take that first sip of summer, you’ll fall in love! Just be sure to abstain from driving after; there’s a LOT of alcohol in this seemingly innocuous drink!
The absolute best way to stay cool on a sultry summer day is with a visit to the beach, and Maui’s beaches are world famous for their beauty! Stake a claim on your own stretch of sand at your favorite beach, slather on the sunscreen, and prepare for a day of fun in the turquoise waters of the Pacific. You can bring a book and read under an umbrella, or you can rent a jet ski, snorkeling equipment, or an entire boat and never have to leave the cool waters!
As the sun sets on another day in paradise, the quiet moments spent with family and friends will be the coolest ones of all.
