I enjoyed the gelato here so much that I came back three times! The location is nothing special at all, however the gelato is delicious.

It was late when we arrived... More

Friendly staff, lots of free samples and advice, and, of course, outstanding gelato - rich and thick and creamy, with excellent flavours.

Friendly staff, more than happy to let you sample before you buy. Sandy Beach by far our family favourite, but you really can't go wrong with any of the flavours. Get a medium size and you can have 2 flavours to try - that way it will take you less time to get through the whole array of delicious gelato!

Best selection of delicious Gelato! We had a coupon from the This Week In Maui book - so it was even better to get something great for less $!

I love this place and ...gelato. I like that the staff they are friendly, and offer tastes. By tasting I actually buy more that I thought as I walked into the door. The hazelnut chocolate, chocolate sorbet! Both excellent! I went back again with another friend and had, hazelnut, and passion fruit. Yummy!!!!!
