Chic Whalers Village has a whaling museum and wonderful restaurants and shops. Upscale haunts include Louis Vuitton and Coach, and beautyphiles can get their fix at Sephora. Elegant koa home accessories at Martin and MacArthur are perfect Hawaii-made souvenirs. The complex also offers fun diversions: Hawaiian artisans display their crafts on Monday; hula dancers perform on an outdoor stage some nights from 7 to 8 pm; jazz is performed the first Sunday of every month; and
Polynesian rhythms resound on Saturday. If you find yourself there on the first Saturday of May, the Maui Onion Festival is a fun foodie event that features some of Hawaii's stellar chefs.
