When one thinks of Maui, it’s usually a picture of long stretches of pristine, sandy beaches. That is exactly what Kaanapali Beach is – and visitors are never disappointed.
Home to Hawaii’s first master-planned resort destinations, Kaanapali still serves as a model for resorts around the world. Fringed in coconut palms, soft sand, gentle waves, and the emerald-coated West Maui Mountains, it is not hard to see why.
On the northern end of Kaanapali is the sacred site of Black Rock. Believed to be the jumping off point for spirits entering the afterlife, the tradition continues with countless daredevil divers and nightly sunset ceremonies. Mere steps from the beach, you can explore a world-class shopping village with over 60 retailers and restaurants, an historical whaling museum, two championship golf courses, tennis courts for day and night play, live entertainment, and an oceanfront beach walk that connects them all.
