“Beautiful beach!”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

I live in California and rarely go the 20 minutes to the beach, but I love the Ka'anapali beaches! The water is warm, the fish are colorful, and we always seem to swim with sea turtles.

Pretty, nice sand. Beware rocks and reef. Beautiful snorkeling right there! Windy at times, beautiful sunsets.

“One of the best beaches in the world!”
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!”
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.
