Kauai’s Oceanfront Luau at Coconut Beach

With a stunning ocean view Luau Maka’iwa is more than just a traditional Hawaiian luau – it is a fascinating musical and culinary journey of the Hawaiian Islands and greater Polynesia.  Kauai’s best kept secret so far!  With a small number of guests attending each night this is the most intimate Luau setting offered on Kauai.

Located at the Royal Kauaian Surfing Grounds Luau Maka’iwa celebrates the connection that all of Polynesia has with the ocean. Located in the Wailua & Kapaa area where the first Hawaiians from the Marquesas Islands made their home almost 1500 years ago.

Celebrating Tradition

From the impressive torch lighting ceremony that kicks off the evening’s festivities to the mesmerizing hula kahiko (ancient hula) dances performed under the direction of an award-winning kumu hula (hula master), Luau Maka’iwa invites you to experience a special evening celebrating Hawaiian and Polynesian culture, complete with a Hawaiian feast and live music.

We had an amazing time at the Luau 2 years ago. The dancers were so graceful and did a remarkable job. There was a professional photographer there that took family pictures with the ocean as the backdrop. We really enjoyed the whole experience and plan to go again this year.
