#1 of 127 in Parks 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. Plan a trip to Lahaina easily and quickly by telling Inspirock to suggest an itinerary.

  • Stayed right on the beach! Great location with food and shopping close by. Make sure you go to Black Rock Beach by the Sheraton for a great place to snorkel and swim with kids! No surf there!  more »
  • Great snorkeling at Black Rock by the Sheraton on Kaanapali. Can be a bit windy and currents are strong. Beautiful beach to spend a day.  more »
  • A very popular beach. It can get extremely overcrowded at time but is worth it! It’s the most convenient when your hotel is on or near the beach. I enjoy staying at the Westin and using this beach.  more »
