What are the best places to eat and drink in Maui?

Waikiki brewery in Lahaina. Beautiful view of the water to watch the sunset. Food and staff are great! The Thai food truck in Hana. I’d do the whole road to Hana again just for that pad Thai. We also loved the bar at the pool, Umalu, at our resort. We stayed at the Hyatt resort in Kaanapali.

What is the best tip for going on your honeymoon to Maui?

Tell everyone it’s your honeymoon. People were really nice and sometimes got a shoutout. We had to cancel and reschedule this trip three times due to the pandemic. It made it extra special when we were reminded it was our honeymoon... even after a year and a half of waiting.
