“One of the best beaches in Maui!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I spent 10 days in Maui and we visited beaches all over the Island. It's clean, clear and relaxing. We snorkel and I'm not a swimmer which made it even more amazing. This beach is a must see, must visit an must swim!

“Life's a beach!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013

Great place to relax in the sun (or the shade). Eatery at the Sheraton was superb. There are also two great restaurants at Whaler's Village.

“Nice Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2013

Very long white sand beach. If you do not go early enough, expect to pay premium parking fees at hotels nearby (we were not staying on Ka'anapali). We went around 9 and all free parking was already scooped up. The beach was very empty and peaceful in the morning but did fill up eventually. You could look at the view all day long with the island in the distance against the blue water. There was actually a shark attack off the pier while we were on the beach and a lifeguard came around to pull us out of the water. I must say that the beach is gorgeous however, it is a more commercialized beach with the landscaping and hotels down the beach so we actually opted for Napili Beach for the rest of the time we were in that area on Maui. If you prefer a more relaxed and less commercialized feel, Napili is a better option in my opinion but Ka'anapali is worth at least one visit.

“Walk on the beach at sunset”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

Great walk by the ocean, but pretty expensive to eat or drink. Sunsets are absolutely beautiful. Hold hands and stroll.
