We spent three weeks in Maui and most days at Kaanapali Beach. The beach is large and this was a great time to visit, only two days with large waves and not too much wind. The boardwalk along the beach is very convenient, walked to restaurants and shopping, then back to the beach. Wonderful!

Gorgeous beach with awesome views! The water was a bit rough the days we were there so I didn't snorkel but my husband did. He said the snorkeling was very good but you had to be careful of the coral. He cut his knee and saw another person that had cut the bottom of their foot. It was a little... More

Bring your own shade! Or rent covered loungers from the many hotels. Consider wading out passed the waves crashing before slipping on your snorkel fins. Consider wearing your river shoes out to the Black Rock if you plan to climb/jump off - the lava rock can be rough for the feet! Snorkeling around Black Rock is pleasant- some fish &... More

We have stayed at The Whaler on Ka'anapali Beach around 10 times and the beach is truly the best beach I have visited in my life. Great access to the water, variety of activities (snorkeling Black Rock, sunset cruises, paddle boarding to name a few) or just hanging on the beach. Also great access to fantastic dining and food when... More

It spreads for many miles - a gorgeous beach walk with lots of activities advertised on the way, such as kayaking, sailing, snorkeling, surfing, etc., as well as options for shopping, dining, taking cute pictures and admiring magical sunsets. People walk, run, jog and simply socialize there. A great place to visit daily.

We visited Ka'anapali Beach a few times during the time we stayed in Kapalua. The beach is endless and beautiful. The ocean had strong cross currents so we had to careful getting into the water.
