MAUI BEACHESKaanapali Beach
Take three miles of perfect sand and calm crystal clear water and you have Maui’s signature beach at Kaanapali. Kaanapali Beach was voted one year as America’s Best Beach. This area of Hawaii was once a retreat for the Hawaiian Royalty, and now attracts tourists from the world over with it’s planned resort area which has become a model for resorts around the globe. There are no less than five hotels, six condominium complexes, restaurants, and two championship golf courses, the Royal Kaanapali and the Kaanapali Kai, where you may see breaching whales as you stroll the fairways. Throw in a Whaling Museum and free entertainment and you have a world class place to spend some free time. One of Kaanapali Beach’s most famous attractions is the daily cliff diving ceremony off of the beach’s northernmost cliffs known as Puu Kekaa, or Black Rock. Held every evening at sunset, a cliff diver lights the torches along the cliff, diving off of Black Rock in a reenactment of a feat by Maui’s revered King Kahekili. Don’t forget to grab your snorkel and check out the usually calm waters around the point at Black Rock for an extra treat.
