Great beach. Easy parking and amenities available. Water was nice and not crowded. We played in the water with the three kids under 3 years old and had a blast.

We stayed at the Hyatt Residence club on Ka'anapali beach. Its a terrific beach that is narrow in some areas and gets wider as you head from the Hyatt to the Marriott. Some decent snorkeling near the Hyatt that is even better at Black Rock. Great paved walkway along the beach, hotels and Whalers Village makes for great evening walks.... More

Beach was so nice with clear water which I thought better than Wailea. Lots of construction in the shopping area and was not pleasant with the dusting all over. Parking was very expensive.

This beautiful stretch of beach faces both Molokai and Lanai. This channel is great in the winter for whale watching as it was very active when we were there a few years ago. The water is clear blue and great for all ages. Just down the beach is Black Rock which has some of the best snorkeling I have ever... More

Have been to Maui 3 times now and we always have to visit Ka'anapali beach. Long stretches of beautiful sand and a gentle incline down into an azure sea. Just fabulous.

Have to watch for rips but lifesavers on the watch. Crystal clear water. Plenty of activities for children offered from hotels. Sun shades available at a cost from your hotel.

Kaanapali beach is a nice and long beach, pretty wide as well to Maui standards. It was next to our hotel, so this was the best place to relax in the evening and watch the sunset. The sun sets between the two islands facin Maui. A beautiful sight. If you want to go snorkling walk to the end of the... More
