KĀ’ANA­PALI

Where Maui - - WHERE NOW -

In the 1960s, as de­vel­op­ers built West Maui re­sorts to ri­val Waikīkī’s, Kā‘ana­pali ex­pe­ri­enced a surge of pop­u­lar­ity. It’s easy to see why this for­mer sugar plan­ta­tion was cho­sen: its beaches. At the north end, Ka­hek­ili Beach is great for snor­kel­ing. Along the length of the re­sort, Kā‘ana­pali Beach is lined with swank ho­tels that have made West Maui a top des­ti­na­tion. One of Kā‘ana­pali’s sig­na­ture at­trac­tions, Pu‘u Keka‘a (Black Rock) is a unique out­crop­ping of lava sur­rounded by thriv­ing coral reef. While divers and snorkel­ers sa­vor the un­der­wa­ter sights, land­lub­bers en­joy the mile-long ocean­front walk­way or the Kā‘ana­pali His­toric Trail, a two-hour jour­ney start­ing at the Royal Lāhainā Re­sort.
