Great waves this year

If you stay at the Hyatt or Marriott, just walk a few hundred yards north and you will find the funniest beach around. Great waves, surfing to watch and lots of room to hang out.

Easy access for snorkeling, just go through Sheraton Hotel has public parking garage, it is pay for parking, but if you are lucky enough to leave when the person at the pay booth has "stepped out", the gate is left open and you don't have to pay! The beach is somewhat crowded during high season, but I tell ya, there... More

The beach is one of the longest I've been to, so much to see as you walk end to end, and opportunities to get coffee or dinner along the way. Don't drive, take the beach.

In Maui all of the beaches are public beaches even in front of the most expensive resorts. In varies how quickly it gets deep unlike Waikiki that seems to stay shallow for quite some distance. Look for the surf warnings. I appreciated that the distance from the beginning of the beach to water was just the correct amount of hot... More

This is an excellent beach to visit. There are so many water sports available right on the beach. Whalers shops are right there as well. The famous Black Rock is on this beach as well and offers an excellent area for snorkeling.

Our family of 4 spent 4 of our 8 days on this beach because it was that good. Great sand, beautiful water, good snorkeling and amazing weather. This is a must visit for anyone coming to Maui!

Even if you do not stay at one of the gorgeous hotels at Ka'anapali beach it is worth an afternoon to walk along the beach front to check out all of the beautiful properties along the boardwalk. If you time it right you can watch the cliff jumpers at sunset too.

Our family isn't much for big hotels on developed strips, but this is a nice beach. We can't blame the beach for the hotels. There are just too many people and the site of all those large resort hotels took away from the feeling that we were on Maui. This is a classic example of "to each his own" and... More
