This is the classic Hawaiian beach we all dream about when wanting to relax or get away from the winter blues in cooler climates. We have come here many times for strolling, snorkeling and swimming, and never tire of the area.

We stayed at the Westin Ka'anapali for 12 days. We did not sit on the beach much as we had to rent the chairs and umbrellas, you pay for the day, it was close enough from our swimming pool site. The beach is narrow and steep, not as wide as at Paia beach. My husband likes to do body surfing... More

A wonderful beach. The water was warm and clear with miles of beautiful sand. We enjoyed the swimming and snorkeling. We saw plenty of fish and even swam near a turtle. Was beautiful. Another pro for us was the walking path that connected our hotel with restaurants and shops. One thing to note is that the coral makes swimming off... More

You can walk to the hotels to order food and drinks without staying at the hotels. It's also close the restaurants and shopping.

Lovely beach and whale watching. Several parks are on hwy 30 that offer walking trails and swimming. A church offers Sunday service near the post office.

This is our happy place. We love the area and how it's easy it is to get to Lahaina. It doesn't matter where you stay on the beach there is just not a bad view.

Fun family beach that is a stone throw away from hotels/food. BRING WATER SHOES. There are a lot of underwater rocks that make it near impossible to walk without shoes or fins on most parts of the beach. Spotted minimal fish but plenty of turtles to swim with. Waves are fairly small and the rip tide is minimal. Enjoy!
