You never run out of things to do or places to visit on the Island of Maui even after dark.
Considering that it is an island known for its natural beauty and people - even natives are inclined to nature/beach trips and activities.
Be aware that for some people, lights out is usually around 9:30 pm to 11:00 pm. And some establishments close earlier than you may be used to. But that being said, there are still plenty of options in Maui after dark.
One attraction in Maui’s nightlife are the places for live music.
Some of these places go way back in the late 1960’s and have become Maui institutions.
In the Northern part of Maui, two places for live music, singing, and dancing are the front and center of after dark activities - Charley’s Restaurant and Saloon and Casanova Italian Restaurant and Deli. Charley’s is a Maui landmark, established in 1969 and is a favorite hangout of celebrities and other public/social figures. It’s known for its authentic Hawaiian dishes but more so for live music entertainment. This award-winning restaurant is a favorite nightspot of Willie Nelson and other stars of the music industry. For beat thumping and techno popping live music, Casanova Italian Restaurant and Deli is right up your alley. During Wednesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, music comes alive, and tables are set aside to make room for the dance floor. Contemporary Hawaiian bands and reggae artists from the Caribbean frequently perform here.
Down South of the island, the place to be for live music are Mulligan’s on the Blue, and Haui’s Life’s a Beach. Mulligan’s on the Blue is the open air Irish Restaurant and Bar in Wailea’s Old Blue Course. Live music is played here on a daily basis during Happy Hour. It is the only authentic Irish pub in Maui. Haui’s Life’s a Beach or LAB for short is hard to miss with a concrete whale right in front of the sport’s bar. It boasts daily live music, karaoke nights and plenty of eats and drinks. Check out the scheduled entertainment at both establishments to see what’s on for the night.
On the Western front, the places to be for live music are Fleetwood’s on Front Street and Cool Cat Cafe. Fleetwood’s has a daily happy hour and after the sunset; the fun begins in the main lounge with live music. Everyday before the live music, watch the sunset ceremony complete with Bagpipes. Cool Cat Cafe boasts the best burger in Maui, and live music to boot. The cafe features contemporary Hawaiian, Acoustic, Jazz and good old Rock n’ Roll music everyday.
Fun times in Maui begin at sun up but don’t end after dark.
Check out these restaurants and bars’ websites for more information on their scheduled bands.
Have fun in Maui with sun, nature trips and music!
|Wildlife to Expect on the Island of Maui|
Apart from beautiful waterfalls, volcanoes, and oceans to explore in Maui, you'll also find an array of incredible wildlife.
|August 02, 2017|
Maui is a peaceful island located in the Central Pacific and part of the Hawaiian archipelago.
The island contains many tourist attraction sites which include National Parks with various species of animals, as well as waterfalls, pools and volcanic Haleakala which attracts tourists year round who come to visit the island.
Below are some of the various species of wildlife you can find on the island of Maui.
1. Hoary Bats
The Hoary Bat is a species of bat in the Vesper family found on Maui with a body the size of a mouse.
It’s one of the two species of mammals that are endemic to the Maui, the other being the Hawaiian monk seal.
The bat was declared an endangered species by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in the year 1970.
They are attracted to Maui due to the undisturbed forests found on the island.
2. Hawaiian Monk Seals
The Hawaiian Monk Seal can only be found on the island of Maui, believed to have been in existence for more than 13 million years.
The population of the Hawaiian Monk Seal has greatly deteriorated due to challenges like high predation, destruction of their habitat and food shortages in the island due to food competition with other animals.
The species is hard to find but can be spotted on Maui basking on sandy beaches during sunny afternoons.
3. Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles
The Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle is the most commonly encountered sea turtle on Maui, mostly spotted swimming near the shores, eating algae off the reef and also sometimes seen playing with the sweet waves.
4. Humpback Whales
Apart from sea turtles, Humpback whales are found in high number around Maui.
Most tourists plan their visits during the whale’s season which starts in December and ends in April.
Maui is the prime watching spot for whales since most of the whales make their long trek from Alaska to give birth around the island.
The Mongoose was introduced into the ecosystem of Maui to help in reducing a large number of rats which had become a threat to the sugar plantations in the surrounding area.
Despite the fact that rats are nocturnal and mongooses are active in the daytime, the rats were effectively reduced in numbers.
6. Nene Goose
The Nene goose can only be found on Maui and Kauai.
The birds can be seen in groups or in pairs and are known to mate for life.
They are widely known for their loud honking noise and fully webbed feet for gripping hard surfaces like the lava. The largest population of Nene goose can be seen in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
