Located in West Maui just north of Lahaina, Ka'anapali Beach is one of Hawaii's most famous and popular beaches.
Kaanapali Beach is bordered by numerous elegant resort hotels and the Whalers Village Shopping Mall.
This lifeguard-protected beach is almost three miles long. Ka'anapali is the beach for activities. You can snorkel in the crystal clear water, windsurf, jet-ski, parasail, or kayak. Numerous catamaran sails leave right from the beach.
The best snorkeling is at the northern end of the beach near Pu'u Keka'a or Black Rock.
If you're not staying at one of the resorts, you can park in the Whaler's Village Parking Garage for a fee. Be sure not to leave valuables on the beach while you swim.
