Along with Wailea, this is the resort hotspot of the island. Ka'anapali is Maui's equivalent of Waikiki Beach, although it comes nowhere close to being that big or busy. The entire beach is open to the public. Access is available through resort grounds, as are public restrooms and showers. Plenty of shops and restaurants are located right along the strip. The sands are warm and gold; the water is clear and flat. A major Ka'anapali landmark is Black Rock, once known as Soul's Leap, this rock is still a popular jumping point for locals and particularly brave visitors and also a popular snorkeling location.
Relaxing, sunning, snorkeling, or whatever way you spend time at the beach, this beach is the best beach because all is possible On Ka'anapali Beach. We spent our honeymoon at the Royal Lahaina on the beach and we did it all! You will love it here! Can't go wrong no matter what time of year!
We live right across the street from Kaanapali Beach (International Colony Club).
Even with the construction, the work has been kept low profile and respects the beach.
North West Hawaii needs this development and so do the people.
Our daughter (single with an MBA) recently returned as a manager at the Sheraton Maui and the expense of living there mandates that two spouses work flat out. A single scene from 25-34 is non-existent due to the life style; so the demographics for that age are: newly or recently married with a toddler or newborn and both parents working as professionals (teachers,for example)flat out.
You've got to build your middle class for a stronger community.

Great location....shops and restaurants at Whalers Village are steps away from the beach. Black Rock snorkeling is basically a short walk down the beach. There are also great waves for boogy-boarding. If you want everything all in one place this is it. If I ever come back, I will stay at a place on Kaanapalli beach for sure...it's where all the fun is!
Wife& I spent 4 nights At Kaanapali Villas,while on our 5th Aniv.very nice place good food good location to travel to all of the exciting places. Make sure you have plenty of film,or a digital camera is a lot better. My 2nd trip. Seen things missed before.
Oloha Just Returned Home (sad face) and since I read all the reviews before we went, It is only fitting I return the favor. Black Rock was everything and more that I was hoping for by reading these reviews. We Stayed at the Royal Lahiana Resort.( And by the way it was Outstanding. Alot of negative reviews for this place but I guess if you want to stay in your room and not go anywere than this might not be the place you may want to stay at.) We also liked the Snorkeling at Mile Marker 14. The waves was a lot calmer along that stretch. But my Favorite was by far Black Rock. Save yourself the money for the boatride just to snorkel at Molokini crater. However at this time of year you will probably see Whales and that in itself makes it worth it 2 for the price of one. We saw many whales from our Balcany on the 8th floor. Have fun and Get up early to go Snorkeling. We were up by 6am every morning and out in the water by 8am. Then drove or layed out that particular day. The Road to Hana was Excellent. But the Road that goes along the West shore line by Kaanapali and towards Kapalua was by far Better than Hana. You want to go this way because Driving in a clockwise circle you hug the mountain. Go the other way and you are driving on the edge of a cliff. and only room enough for one car! So someone either has to back up or find a spot that will let two cars pass. Renting a Motorcyle for this part I should have done! But the Views everwhere are Breathtaking! Making no difference from Hana to Honokohau. One word that gets stated alot "Paradise" is the right word. Mahalo.
Beach is beautiful and the best snorkeling is at the black rock (which is right in front of the Sheraton). I would recommend staying at the Westin-Maui. The pool at this hotel is second to none. The best dining on the island is in the town of Paia at Mama's Fish House. Call now for reservations.
fortunately, for my boyfriend and i, his parents have timeshare at the maui mariott. this convenience made it 80% cheaper for us to travel there. as a couple in our late twenties, this was the trip of a lifetime. it is absolutely breathtaking!!!! it still brings tears to my eyes to think of the amazing experience we had there. We got certified to scuba off the shores of ka'anapali beach, took a helicopter ride, drove the road to hana, went whale watching, scuba at molokini, snorkled at black rock (north end of ka'anapali beach), swam with the giant green hawaiian sea turtles, visited the banyon tree, had breakfast at the kehei cafe, dinner at the plantation golf club, and went to a luau!! WOW!!! we are looking forward to returning in may 2006. not everything on maui is as expensive as some may say. look for a deal and GO! you will love it!
