Recently stayed in a hotel on Ka'anapali Beach. We enjoyed spending the day on this beautiful beach or just relaxing by the pool and taking in the magnificent view!

I love the Ka'anapali area. Great place for families. Lots to do. Snorkelling at black rock is good when it's calm. We love staying at the resorts in this area.

If you like to snorkel, surf, lay in the sand or swim in the ocean, this is the place. We saw many different fish, sea turtles and all kinds of ocean life. We loved it. It is one of the top for many good reasons.

Usually this beach is very calm but during our visit there were limited opportunities to get into the water because of waves and undertow. It is a very nice, clean beach otherwise.
