Relax on the Beach: Once named ‘America’s Best Beach‘, Ka’anapali Beach definitely lives up to its name. This is the perfect place for snorkeling, cliff diving, scuba diving, swimming, or simply laying in the sand. Take a stroll along the beach walkway and find your favorite spot!
Shopping: Located just behind the beach, you can’t miss Whalers Village if you plan on shopping on Maui. Store options include PacSun, Tommy Bahama, Kate Spade, Lululemon, Louis Vuitton and more, as well as several jewelry stores, an ABC Store, kiosks and specialty stores.
Play Golf & Tennis: Golf enthusiasts will love the Royal Ka’anapali and Ka’anapali Kai courses, which feature unparalleled views. For tennis, visit the Royal Lahaina Tennis Ranch.
Hawaii Food & Wine Festival: Featuring internationally-recognized chefs, sommeliers, and food and mixology professionals, the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival is held annually at the Ka’anapali Beach Resort. The weekend-long event consists of wine tastings, cooking demos, farm-to-table dinners, coffee tastings and more, and should definitely be on your list if you consider yourself a connoisseur of the finer things in life.
Ono Grinds: For breakfast in Ka’anapali, we love Slappy Cakes‘ variety of make-your-own pancakes, or Gazebo, located just a little north in Napili, for their fried rice and macadamia nut pancakes. Fantastic!
For lunch, head to Sangrita Grill & Cantina for Maui’s take on Mexican food, Leilani’s on the Beach or Hula Grill, which often have live music and a gorgeous view of Ka’anapali Beach.
For happy hour and dinner options, we recommend Japengo for sushi, Duke’s Beach House, or Pulehu for Italian fare.
