ALOHA!

 

This is a completely man-made cave (aka not natural) on Maui but it could still be a fun experience to have a drink or 2 (and maybe some food) at a bar in a “cave” (grotto). There’s even a cave pool.

Outdoor pool at the Hyatt Regency Maui Resort

So the Hyatt located on Kaanapali Beach also has an outdoor pool. This pool is only for guests of the Hyatt.

You can walk right through from the pool side, and it’s connected to the Grotto Bar, walking (or swimming!) through a “waterfall” along the way!

Kaanapali beachwalk

aka oceanfront paved trail!

If you’re not staying at the Hyatt (and even if you are – another option!), then you can access the Grotto Bar by taking the “Kaanapali Beachwalk” which is a paved trail that runs right alongside Kaanapali Beach.
