Rates as top beach in United States year after year. Its beautiful, top shelf amenities, great people watching, everything you can ask for in a day at the beach. However, you must respect the water despite its beauty. There is often a hazardous shore break that can take down and injure the strongest of legs. Watched many get wiped out... More

Best beach in the world! The best place to stay is the Kaanapali Alii. Lots to do within walking distance or short drive.

Great beach for teens that are not strong swimmers and just learning to snorkel. Water is clear and there is lots to see.

This is the beach to stay near. It is beautiful. It is not crowded and has all the things you would want to do. Get a hotel on this beach if you can.

Ka'anapali Beach is a wonderful beach to snorkel, or simply walk along the beach. We stated at the Westin right on the beach, and took daily walks during the day and sometimes at sunset. There's a boardwalk that you can take to the Marriott to see the cliff diving at sunset - a must see activity. All in all, a... More

My most favorite beach. Has it all. Sun,sand,surf,food and shopping. It is easy to spend an entire day here enjoying everything. Parking is horrendous and extremely expensive but some stores do validate.Beach is great for any activity. They have it all.

Another amazing place for snorkelling. The water may appear rough but go out 25 metres and you have an amazing reef. Listen for whales under water and you might even see turtles. Enjoy

Beautiful beach, great for a stroll or sunbathing. It was real peaceful, with very few people when were there. We even went a little farther east, through the hotel breezeway, and out to Black Rock for some great snorkeling. Lucky enough to swim with a sea turtle for the first time, truly an experience!
