The term “beach bum” simply means someone who likes to spend a lot of time on the beach, relaxing and catching some sun without a care in the world. It might surprise you to learn the extent that this term has been adopted into society. There are beach bums everywhere, in resort towns on the East Coast, the islands of Hawaii, and even small lakeside towns in Michigan. The idea of the beach bum lifestyle is so attractive that some people even name their businesses after them.
Beach Bums Maui
It’s no surprise to see a business named after beach bums in Hawaii. The Beach Bums BBQ & Grill opened in Maui in 2007 and quickly became a popular spot for tourists and locals. The Beach Bums’ menu is full of truly unique dishes, and is the only restaurant on Maui that has a genuine wood rotisserie smoker. It was actually built for the Maui restaurant in Mesquite, Texas. Beach Bums Maui only uses local wood, which adds an authentic beach bum flavor to their meats.
The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. No matter what time of day, you’ll find patrons wearing the official beach bum costume of a bathing suit and sandals enjoying some delectable food. You can also stop by the beach bums bar for great happy hour specials.

They’ve become an integral part of the lives of residents and tourists alike. Team colors are dark blue and gold, just like the University of Michigan.

If beach bums are people who love to hang out at the beach, it’s easy to see why the term is used by so many different businesses and organizations across the country. It’s a term that brings to mind the warm days of summer when you have nothing to do but lay back, catch some sun, eat some good food, and maybe take in a baseball game.
