One of my favorite Maui Beaches. Wonderful clean beach where you can relax and enjoy Hawaii. Nice place to snorkel around the famous Black Rock. Plenty of restaurants and shopping right off the beach if you wish to take a break from the sun.

Ka'anapali Beach is beautiful. Clean white sand that hugs the ocean for miles up and down the Lahaina area coast line. Lots of restaurants and hotels to choose from along the way.

I think it is the only beach in Lahaina without rocks. Nice public beach with parking. Take along your chairs and enjoy the sunset.

Ka’anapali beach, is in my opinion, the most beautiful beach on the planet! Super soft sand, clear warm water, and not too crowded. Bring your sunscreen, bathing suit and sunglasses!
