Lahaina and Kaanapali
The historic port town of Lahaina and the area of Kaanapali are excellent locations to stay on West Maui.
Just north of Lahaina is Kaanapali Beach which was awarded the 2003 Dr. Beach award for being America’s Best Beach. The resort area of Kaanapali provides conveniences within walking distance such as great restaurants, shop and free entertainment in Whalers Village, excellent off-the-beach snorkeling at Black Rock, two championship golf courses and the Whale Center of the Pacific. Kaanapali’s location is well situated for exploring the whole island. Kaanapali makes a great base for a Maui vacation.
Lahaina is a lively and charming town with unique shops, art galleries and lots of waterfront restaurants.
