One of the most popular things to do on Maui is shop. There are plenty of shopping options on Maui with its numerous galleries, designer boutiques, international shops and shopping malls that carry everything from clothing, gifts and specialty items to unique handcrafted Polynesian crafts.
At Whalers Village in Ka’anapali, step right off the beach into a shopping bonanza: Coach, Louis Vuitton, Georgiou and other designer boutiques. Surf shops and aloha wear. Imports and top-quality made-in-Hawaii handicrafts. From upscale silk sarongs to flip-flops and sundries, from cameras to pearls for that special night out, you can satisfy all of your needs at the Village. If you’re shopped out, slow down at the whale museum, or in one of the oceanfront restaurants.
Lahaina is well-known for its string of boutiques and restaurants that line the shoreline of this historic town. The galleries, food shops and clothing stores of the Lahaina Cannery Mall; the Outlets of Maui in Lahaina, and the Old Lahaina Center, are as much a dining and entertainment nexus as a must-see for shoppers. At the Outlets, popular national chains share space with local emporiums of aloha wear and gift items. Front Street is lined with boutiques and galleries with something for every budget, from fine art to trinkets, from plumeria soap to aloha shirts.
