We love Napua! Great drinks and service, good food, and a relaxed atmosphere! We typically eat lunch here while lounging on the beach - several times during our stay. Definitely worth the visit!

We were staying nearby and ate at this restaurant twice during our stay. The lunch menu was a mix of fish sandwiches, salads, burgers, etc. and is very convenient considering it is right on the beach. A good lunch during a nice beach day. Dinner...More

Like a delicious little secret, tucked away in a private ocean cove along the appetizing sands of Mauna Lani Resort is a Big Island restaurant called Napua, waiting for you to discover the foods of Hawai'i Island, shared with the kind of aloha that comes from those who know.
