After many trips to Wailea, we just finished our first trip to Ka'anapali. While the area was overall wonderful, we were disappointed by the in-water activities at the Ka'anapali beaches themselves - the rocks and coral were good in places for snorkeling, and some folks...More

This is a great beach up north of the big hotels but close if you are staying at one. Bring sun lotion and a towel and relax. Good snorkeling too.

It's really hard to review a beach because everyones preferences of what they want and are looking for in a beach could be different. My family (my wife and kids ages 12 and 14) loved this beach. On 2 of the 3 days we spent...More

Great beach for boogie boarding. Also, easy access to the Ritz’ Burger Shack for lunch and cocktails makes it even better.

This is a safe beach to take your kids. But do stay out of the water when the wave and take the warning sign serious. Lifeguard on duty, clean with bathrooms and shower.

A nice little beach! Not at all for snorkeling but great for boogie boarding. Parking can be a challenge for sure. I had to park way up the road but it was fine. The restaurant - burger shack -overpriced, busy and slow.

Yes. There is an activity kiosk at the south end of the beach right behind the tree line. I think that it is hosted by the Ritz, but probably open to all (for purchase or rental). Go towards the south end of DT Fleming and... More
