“One of the best beaches in the world!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

This long sugar sand beach fronts a row of hotels in Maui. It has a great 1 mile walking path that is between the hotels & condos and the beach with great people watching. Snorkeling is excellent at the west end along Black Rock and swimming & surfing is generally safe all along the beach.
The water is clear and turquoise and the whole experience is breath-taking.

“Best on the Island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Pristine and coral and rock free. Not at all crowded. A must see on Maui. Even mid day the beach offers a very private feeling.

“GREAT BEACH!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2013

Ka'anapali Beach is great and everything is just a short walk away. From dinning to fun and adventure, Ka'anapali Beach has it all! Our hotel was pretty much front and center of it with Whaler's Village right next to it. People at Ka'anapali are all friendly and helpful towards tourists. Although Ka'anapali is always busy it is not overwhelmingly crowded. One of the best beaches we have been to. Definitely a must if you are in Maui.
