Open-Air Shopping on Maui

With splendid, sun-filled blue skies and tropical breezes, Maui’s weather is so lovely that you’ll want to spend all of your time outdoors, even while shopping. The island boasts fantastic open-air shopping experiences, complete with live shows and entertainment.

The Whalers Village

Whalers Village is widely considered Maui’s premier oceanfront shopping center, offering many name-brand stores and a variety of boutique retailers.

Famished and looking for energy after a long day of shopping? Grab a cup of 100% Kona coffee for a quick java jolt or sample the wide array of food offerings, where you can choose to dine at full-service, oceanfront eateries, or pop into a quick-service restaurant.

With open, airy expanses, Whalers Village exudes Hawaiian culture and style. And before you shop ‘til you drop, visit the Whale Center of Hawaii Museum to learn about the history of the Hawaiian whaling era, or immerse yourself in the local culture and learn to hula dance or craft your own lei.

Queen Ka’ahumanu Center

Ideally situated in Maui’s town square in the heart of the island, the Queen Ka’ahumanu Center is a prime, open-air shopping and entertainment destination. Home to more than 100 shops and restaurants, you can leisurely browse island-style boutiques with a refreshing ice cream, or check out a flick at the cinema.

This unique shopping experience also boasts a farmers market, as well as over 300 events each year, including car shows and cruise nights, as well as live Hawaiian music.

Open-air markets, boutique shops, and outlets

On Maui, you’ll find oceanfront outlets, as well as bazaar-style open-air markets with authentic Hawaiian-made clothing, art, and affordable souvenirs. Mingle with the locals at The Shops at Wailea or take advantage of free Ukulele lessons, woodcarving, or coconut frond weaving.

The open-air shopping experience on Maui is about so much more than just shopping; it’s about embracing the Hawaiian culture, learning something new, and yes, soaking up the sun. Come stay with us at our Hyatt Residence Club Maui, Ka‘anapali Beach, and experience open-air shopping as you never have before.
