The varied facets of Ka'anapali Beach
A beach in absolute perfection. Miles of white-gold sand meander along Hawaii's coastline, lapped by the gentle waves of the sea. Likewise, Ka'anapali Beach is known for the many entertainment options across the street from the beach. Tens of shopping, restaurants, cafes and seven resorts are just a part of it.
The mile-long white sandy beach Ka'anapali Beach is located in the west of the island of Maui and literally invites you to experience a varied day at the beach. Man-made many years ago, the beach was once used as a retreat for royalty and runs from Black Rock, past the seven resorts, to Canoe Beach. Ka'anapali Beach is one of the most popular as well as well-visited beaches on the island. Like all of Maui's beaches, it is free and open to the public. There is always a hustle and bustle here, with many people strolling along between the beach and stores or enjoying the sun and beach.
The entrance to the calm sea is shallow and ideal for swimming. Likewise, it offers to dive into the colorful underwater world of Hawaii. Around the Black Rock there are colorful fishes, which can be observed while snorkeling. On the other hand, if you are looking for an adrenaline kick, you can try cliff jumping from Black Rock. But beware, with locals it looks easier than it is and especially with currents that cannot be seen, it can quickly become dangerous. For those who can't stand lying in the sun all day, the stores across the street provide the ideal diversion. The Whalers Village Mall and a variety of restaurants are literally right next to the spread out towel.
A limited number of parking spaces will be provided at the northern part of the beach, alternatively parking spaces can be used at the Whalers Village shopping center.
