We’re fans of Chef Peter Merriman, but you already knew that. If you’ve had the chance to enjoy dinner at his flagship restaurant on the Big Island, then the next logical Merriman location to check out would be Merriman’s Kapalua, located on the luxurious Kapalua coastline. On Sunday mornings…they do brunch. And they do brunch right.
The Ohai Loop Trail is a short hike that we stumbled on while driving through Kahekili Highway on Maui’s North Shore. You’ll find the trailhead and parking for this trail between mile marker 40 and 41. The loop is short, but it is very scenic. The highlight comes at the midpoint, where a single chair awaits, making for the perfect spot to watch for whales and seabirds.
The Kapalua Coastal Trail is the perfect reason to leave the posh suites at The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, for a quick outdoor adventure. The Dragon’s Teeth are located just beyond the Ritz-Carlton chapel. If coming from the Ritz-Carlton, you’ll follow the pathway that runs parallel to the hedges that mark the boundary for the Honokahua Burial Site. This ancient Hawaiian burial site is home to hundreds of ancient Hawaiian remains and is the primary reason why The Ritz-Carlton is located so far from the shoreline.
