While staying at the Ka'anapali Beach Hotel we used the beachfront boardwalk every day to access the many other hotels in the area for restaurants and shopping at the Whalers Village. It was a good beach with great views of Molokai and Lanai.

Kaanapali Beach is absolutely beautiful. The walkway along the beach it's easy to walk on. A stroller is capable of maneuvering through this whole area. We went when there was a Merchant's sale going on. Good prices. And just a beautiful area to see
