- 1) Mahina
Life's a beach. Or, at least it is when you're shopping at Mahina. This locally owned boutique originated on Maui but has since flown the coop and washed up on the shores Waikiki.
Ditch Waikiki's big box retailers and take advantage of Mahina's effortless cotton dresses, wearable tops, comfy rompers and accessories all at affordable prices. Owners Jody and Joe also operate stores in Kihei and Paia on Maui, and their Waikiki shop continues the tradition of striking just the right balance between on-trend items and effortless island style.
If you have time (and more gifts to pick up for friends and family back home!) be sure to check out the other shops at Waikiki Beach Walk. Here, there are more small shops and boutiques, which offer treasure troves of finds - such as Island Sole and Oasis. And you won't be able to help tipping your hat to the new cap specialty store, Truffaux.
