Yesterday we had an opening between bookings at our Sugar Beach condo. There is some maintenance work Sig needed to do before the next arrival, so he dropped the kids and I off at North Kihei's shave-ice store (Ululani's). I've heard that this local chain serves some of the best shave-ice on the island, but in all these years have never tried yet. Yesterday was our day.
The line-up was long. But we were in the shade, so it could have been worse.
Turns out, the line-up was worth it. It really was amazing shave-ice. Not crystal-y like it often is, this was very smoothly shaved ice, it was more creamy than ice-y. I tried the No Ka Oi flavor combo (mango, coconut, lilikoi) - it was amazing. I love all the colorful picnic tables with holes in the table-top to balance the color-ful shave-ice cups.
With our shave-ice in hand, we crossed the street and walked about a block along beautiful Sugar Beach back to the condo complex, enjoying our shave-ice and the view.
We rounded out our day with a sunset swim at the beautiful Sugar Beach ocean-front salt-water pool and hot-tub.
