I have been to many a beach in my life but this is by far the best. I absolutely love it. I've walked the length of it on several occasions. It's always clean and beautiful. It's exactly how one pictures a Hawaiian beach. It's also pretty cool to check out all the hotels and apartment buildings along the beach.

I've never experienced it overly busy so there's lots of room. You can find people doing activities every once in awhile. Watch where you sit though - most of the hotels are very strict about their beach chairs.

This is my favorite beach in Maui. You can snorkel directly off shore and the fish are colorful with a wide variety of species. This was our go-to beach since our neighborhood was Honokowai, just down the road. We visited several beaches on the island and they're all lovely in their own right, but this beaches qualities were all round the best. I miss this beach everyday.

Great sandy beach! Wonderful for kids and surprisingly uncroweded. There are areas like Black Rock where snorkeling is quite good! The surf seems to be very mild here, so better for kids and for swimming then catching waves!

I have been coming to Kaanapali for years and remain a huge fan!

Swim with turtles on the beachfront, clear, crystal green water and an abundance of fish makes this a special place.

Perfect sand. Water in November is such that you walk right in. The snorkeling with turtles and hundreds of fish, awesome. The spinning dolphins, amazing.
