Every time we come to Maui, we are impressed by the numbers of incredibly talented kite surfers using Kanaha Beach to not only get their kicks but to entertain folks like us. We love and enjoy watching them. And it doesn't cost a dime!!!

Hi. I'd like to know about snorkeling at Kanaha Beach Park. I'm happy swimming out to the reef, but would like to know if there is a good reef, coral, fish, etc. Thinking about getting a tiny condo in Kahului. Thanks, Karen
