Beautiful wide beach. Walk the beach or walk in and out of the crowd on the sidewalk that runs from the Sheraton to the Hyatt. Great shopping at Whaler's Village. Lots of restaurants with very good to great food. Lots of water activities available. Certainly not secluded - this is a busy place but still beautiful and fun.

This is a terrific place to snorkel or just hang out with friends. We've seen gorgeous tropical fish and many turtles. If you're patient and willing to go out a ways, you can see all sorts of marine life. The surf CAN be rough, so you need to pick your time, but there are many calm days, and entry/exit is... More

We stayed on Ka'anapali Beach at the Ka'anapali Beach Club resort. This strip of beach is north of Lahaina about 15 minutes and home to many of the family friendly resorts. We didn't spend much time on the beach, but it was pretty and clean.

This is a beautiful sand beach. Snorkeling is great near Black Rock, it's not super crowded although there are always a lot of people on the beach as there are many hotels in the area. You can rent snorkel equipment, paddle boards, take surfing lessons, or just lie in the sun. Whaler's Village is right here and there are plenty... More

A very accessible and beautiful beach. It is sprawling, great views of black rock and plenty of beach space.

If you like to swim, lie in the sand to read, sleep or tan, or walk along the ocean, Kaanapali Beach is as good as it gets. Beautiful!

We stayed on this beach 5 day this april. It was cool, windy, rough surf, some rain, some nights cold during our visit. We had much better weather in kona in january a few years again so we were caught of guard that it can actually be cold in hawaii. Although it can get crowded and during a nice weather... More
