We live on the Monterey Peninsula in California where we have some of the most stunning coastlines anywhere in the world but you can't go in the water without a wetsuit on! We've traveled all over the world and there are many beautiful beaches but...More

Wonderful beach and marvelous sand to sit on. Some parts have strong breakers and big waves but other sections are mild. Lots of surfboards to rent as well as boogie boards. Even a few trees for shade here and there.

This is truly a fantastic location. Amazingly clean and quiet beaches. Great food outlets and plenty of quality hotels to chose from. Our second stay at the Royal Lahaina was very comfortable.

Stayed on this beach for two weeks and couldn't have stated anywhere more perfect - lovely beach and superb snorkelling just off shore. Get out in the morning though a visibility is best.

Great sand, plenty of space and a lovely ocean to swim in! We have tried many beaches on Maui, but always come back to Ka'anapali. It's great for kids as the surf isn't too rough and there is plenty of sand for sand-castle-making!

Stayed at the Hyatt on Kaanapali Beach and used the beach most days. Great if you just want to relax and sit on the sand, but also great for swimming, and the Northern part near Blackrock has some amazing reef snorkelling with Turtles and fish....More

Just find a good hotel! There are many! If you can't find one go to the other side of the island!
