Hale Kai

Warm your toes in the sand and dive into fresh, made-to-order local favorites served from our island-style thatched-roof huts. Our lively oceanside restaurant and beach bar invites you to kick off your flip-flops and share casual fare with family and friends over craft cocktails. Lunch under grass umbrellas or at loungers by the swimming pool. The menu covers all of your favorites: nachos, avocado toast, fish tacos and our signature lobster fried rice. Come as you are! No reservations required.
