Kaanapali

Dive off the beaten path. Kahekili Beach Park is ideal for beginner divers or first-time snorkelers. Although it is one of the northernmost beaches on the Ka’anapali Beach Resort, it is also the least crowded and commercialized. Located on the island of Maui, Hawaii, snorkeling enthusiasts don’t need to even swim into deep waters to enjoy the coral reef. These reefs come right up to the shore. For this reason, this area is perfect for novice swimmers.

Named after the Last King of the Maui empire, Kahekili Beach Park has plenty to do out of the water as well. The beach is pristinely preserved and well populated with wildlife. The public beach is lined with a boardwalk. From here, guests can relax in a covered picnic pavilion, or they can cook up some barbecue at one of the grills.

Only a short ride from the airport and with many nearby hotels, Kahekili Beach Park is a great tourist area when visiting Hawaii. Trip Advisor gave it rave reviews, ranking it #8 on its list of things to do in West Maui.
