“Good Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

Down in front of Whalers Village and further south, there was little coral, if any. Good for paddle boarding and snorkeling. DO NOT stay up any further than the Sheraton. The winds are awful and constant.

“Kaanapali Beach Hotel Free Hula Show!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

If you happen to be near Whaler's Village at 6pm, go next door to the Kaanapali Beach Hotel and catch the hula show from 6-8!
Tuesday nights is a full-on luau show for free, cost of a drink is all. It was absolutely stunning. Gorgeous costumes, the dancers did a great job and the music was wonderful. Kids doing the hula is a must-see on Maui and this show was especially cute. After the 3rd set at 8:30, we all dot up to learn a dance and had a BLAST! My teen and tween were absolutely captivated too.
Check it out and avoid the luau.

The whole family had fun on this beach. We swam, boogie boarded, jet skied, and just relaxed. Can't wait to come back.
