Cheap Parking near Kaanapali Beach

Hello All,

Can someone suggest us a ( cheaper) place to park our rental car for couple of hours at Kaanapali beach ? We plan to go there in evening today. We will do kaanapali beach walk, pick up Hula Pie to go from Hula Grill or Leilani and might go into Beach water for couple of minutes.

Thanks in advance.

Other than grabbing one of the free beach access spaces, there really is no other parking except at Whaler's. Call Hula Grill and ask them if they would valid your pass if you stopped in to get a to go order after a walk. They can see the time stamp when you enter the garage.

Dumb question - Hula Pie to go? It would melt before you get to the car! Or are you planning on taking it right to the beach to eat it after you pick it up?

Aside from the free beach parking (which always seemed like a real turkey-shoot to me!), Whaler's Village is the only parking option I know of. And I always just pick up some water or something at the ABC Store for validation. Easy.

And yes, Hula Pie doesn't travel well at all! Best to just go sit on the beach and eat it there.

DH used to run Olympic-style down the beach to the Sheraton with the HPie to go - so we could eat it on our balcony. Think of the pie as a torch. Even at his good clip, the pie was pretty messed up.

I have a better idea than the main Kaanapali beach. Go to Dukes and get the Hula Pie to go. You can go sit on the sand and eat it, just a short walk - or run with the pie.

Parking is free and plentiful next door in Honoapiilani park

Whaler's Village Lot should be good. The validation is done by stickers and I think you get 3 hours per sticker, up to two stickers, so Hula Grill will give you 1 and if you need more time, get something at the ABC store. You won't be the only one doing this. We've done the dinner, shopping, strolling the beach walk thing there and I don't think I've ever had to pay for parking (I pay for plenty of other stuff at Whaler's, so I think they've still won).

Yes Hula Pie is $10.00 at Dukes. Just had two of them (shared with my husband) about 4 weeks ago. Yummmmy!

All the hotels have beach parking places. But Whaler's Village will be easier.

Thanks all for replying.

We could not go today and plan to go there tomorrow. We will most probably buy something from ABC Store and get parking validated.

Thanks for the heads up on Hula Pie. We had Hula Pie today at Kimos @ Front Street and won't be going to Hula Grill or Leilani tomorrow.

Thanks all for replying. We went to Kaanapali Beach today and parked at Whaler's village. While returning we stopped by ABC store to pick up few items and got parking validated. Please note that minimum purchase required for parking validation at ABC store and Ono Gelato is $15.

Hope you enjoyed Ka'anapali! Glad to hear that Ono Gelato is at Whalers now. Wish they had Ululani's there. Is the construction mostly finished or still in full swing?

I like to get my parking validated at Honolulu Cookies and Crazy Shirts too.
