Kaanapali Lives Up to the Hype
To commonly be called one of the best beaches on what most consider Hawaii’s superior island is no small accomplishment. Kaanapali manages this spectacular feat with ease, however, and you’ll soon see why with your own eyes.
Located on the western coast of marvelous Maui, Kaanapali offers honey-hued sand, ample amenities and more peaceful vibes than you’ll know what to do with. The beach is popular but not oppressively crowded - marked by an array of resorts, vacation villas and shops but maintaining plenty of wide open space and untrammeled terrain. Convenience and charm balance beautifully, spelling success for all those who venture here.
In addition to giving you the chance to snorkel, swim, kayak and bogey board to your heart’s content, nearby golf courses and spas will ensure that all signs of stress are properly banished. Also vying for your attention are whale watching during the winter season, the Kaanapali Historical Trail, and various special cultural events. Na Mele O Maui, for example, is an annual children’s singing competition that has been nurturing local traditions and encouraging creativity for years.
All of these engagements come as part of the Kaanapali package, but spending a few quiet and uneventful hours on the beach is a must, too. Check out the long paved walkway, order a refreshing drink, dive from Black Rock and say hello to the sea turtles.
Be sure to spend plenty of time just soaking it all in so that you’ll be able to decide for yourself if Kaanapali deserves to be known as the best of the best. It surely won’t be too painful.
