4.6
#1 of 519 in Things to do in Maui
Located in a popular beachfront resort, Ka'anapali Beach attracts visitors with its warm sands and shallow waters close to shore. You can board a tour boat right from the beach, or drop by one of many kiosks along the sands to rent snorkeling gear or purchase sunscreen. The beach also features several booths where you can sign up for sailing and surfing lessons, or find out about upcoming luaus and kayaking excursions. Several major hotels and shops surround the beach, along with a shopping complex and a renowned whaling museum. For an ultimate Hawaiian vacation within walking distance of this beach, book a stay at the nearby condominium village.

Where to stay in Lahaina

Despite its popularity with tourists, Lahaina offers relatively few accommodations, which boil down to rental properties and several hostel-like establishments with rooms available on a nightly, weekly, or monthly basis. If you don't have to stay in Lahaina itself, consider lodgings in Kaanapali, less than 15 minutes away by car. Other good options are the resort hotels just to the north of Lahaina, and oceanside campgrounds to the south.
