Ka'anapali Beach is the major resort area on the West side of Maui. It's six minutes (3 miles) north of the town of Lahaina. Ka'anapali Beach has major resort hotels, condos, a shopping center, a mile-long beach, snorkeling, boats and all activities within easy walking distance. It's on the west side of Maui, which is more lush and green than the south side (Wailea and Kihei). And it's close to Lahaina, for lots more restaurants, entertainment, shopping, boat excursions and history. There are booths on Ka'anapali Beach where you can sign up for sailing, snorkeling, boat excursions, kayaking, luaus, surfing lessons and water equipment rentals.
From its heavenly beaches to its scenic natural wonders, there are plenty of reasons why Maui has been voted 'Best Island' by readers of Conde Nast Traveler for seventeen years. Discover your own reasons to love Maui as you stroll the seaside streets of Lahaina and the lovely beaches of Ka'anapali. Feel the mana (power) of Haleakala National Park or discover the arts and culture of Kahului and Upcountry Maui. From championship golf courses to the scenic road to Hana, your vacation on the 'Valley Isle' promises to be unforgettable. It's no wonder why thousands of humpback whales migrate to Maui's warm waters year after year.
