“Thar' she blows! You can see whales in winter”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

Long, sandy beach with beautiful views of the islands Moloka'i and Lana'i. Whales can be seen from shore Dec-mid-April. Can walk down to Black Rock to see sunset diver. Nice walkway. Plenty of dining choices at "Whaler's Village" many are right on the beach. Some "night life" of music and bars at the various restaurants and hotels along the beach.

“Another Favorite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

The beaches on Maui are the best we have seen. The water is warm and clear. The public access to the beaches is easy and parking wasn't a problem. Ka`anapali beach is a great place to spend an afternoon or a morning. We will return in the fall of 2013.

“Reef all along shoreline”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2013

If you like to swim in the ocean, this location makes it difficult to do because of the reef close to shore. My partner cut himself on rock as he tried to swim. The hotels are fabulous as well as the walkways along the shoreline.

Clean, Beautiful sand, and sunsets. The people on the beach were very friendly. Private. No seedy characters.

“Best Beach in all of Maui”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2013

It will be busy because its near all the fancy resorts on Maui and near Whalers Village and because its the best sand we have seen so far in Maui.

Plenty of restaurants right off the beach - just yards away and plenty of upscale and local shopping at Whalers Village.
