If you’re ready to take your vacation to Maui to the next level, then you’ll want to make sure to stop by the Kaanapali Beach on Maui’s west side.

This signature beach is located about an hour from the Kahului airport, and consists of about three miles of white sand beach along crystal blue water. For years this special beach has been visited by many people around the world and has won the hearts of visitors everywhere. Named after the area (Kaanapali), this beach is situated near some of the island’s most beloved hotels and restaurants.

Historically known as a relaxing retreat, Kaanapali Beach was chosen as the location for Hawaii’s first-ever planned resort, with many communities and condominiums popping up not long afterwards. Much has changed since then, as this area is now frequented by adventurers, vacationers, and residents alike. Kaanapali Beach is also home to some of the island’s best shopping; particularly at the ever popular Whalers Village. Known for its mix of high end boutiques, surf shops, and restaurants, Whaler’s Village offers a variety of unique and luxury items not typically found elsewhere on Maui.

But that’s probably not what first drew you to this area. You’re most likely looking to enjoy the amazing miles long stretch of white sand at Kaanapali Beach, including the always fun to watch daily cliff diving activities at the nearby Black Rock. These cliffs, known as Puu Kekaa, tempt experienced divers and seasoned swimmers with their perfectly positioned rocks. Everyday people can be seen jumping and flipping high above the ocean near this beach! Also nearby is another thrill seeking activity called ziplining! The Kaanapali Skyline Eco Adventures company offers tours to those brave enough to fly high above this area.

A pristine beach, shopping, amazing restaurants, resorts, golf courses and exciting adventure activities all are what make up this amazing destination.
