We just returned from a week at the Aston Whaler on Ka'anapali Beach and it was totally awesome! I think that this beach is one of the most beautiful beaches that I've ever been to in our travels. We have been on multiple cruises to Mexico and the Caribbean, but I think Ka'anapali is the most scenic beach, and the... More

And jump from Black Rock if that's what you're into. The Sheraton hotel has several beach services to meet your needs (chairs, cabanas, snorkel fear, etc). If you're in the Kaanapali area, this is a MUST before you go back home!

This place was great! Great place for couples and for families. Lots of local shops and everyone is so friendly! We have decided to make this a yearly trip! We've been twice now...once as a girls only trip, then just couples, now family!

This is a Five Star Beach until someone try's to sell you the "many " timeshares. Great water, snorkeling, swimming. This is a very kid friendly beach. The waves are calm here. I liked it for my Son because it is an easy learn to swim in the ocean place. Ka'anapali beach has some of the best Sunsets on the... More

The famous boardwalk connects many resorts, restaurants, entertainment, activities, and shopping. The Black Rock ceremony every day at dusk is a great tradition.

Just awesome. What you dream of when you think of a beach in the Hawaiian Islands. Some areas may have crowds close to resorts. but you can always find a quiet spot.

Beautiful beach where the water is blue and warm. Not too many people due to the size, well worth a day relaxing.

Kaanapali Beach is so beautiful and clean white sand and excellent place to go snorkelling. I think it is about 5 miles long. It so beautiful to see the sun set and the sun rise.

This is an amazing and beautiful beach with snorkeling for all levels of experience. My kids and I were novices but still had a great time swimming around looking at all of the coral and fish. My husband is more experienced but wasn't bored at all. There was plenty for him to see and appreciate.
