Kaanapali Beach is one of Hawaii's most energetic, charismatic, and active beaches. The beachs vibe is defined by the surrounding Kaanapali Resort and the many hotels that sit along its shores. Although very popular, the roughly 1 mile long Kaanapali Beach is able to shoulder the masses with little strain except during the busiest of times such as Christmas. Many activities including seasonal parasailing, surf lessons, volleyball, and sailing keep vacationers busy. At the north end of the beach lies Black Rock which has great snorkeling. With a great boardwalk, so many hotels to explore, a shopping center, and tons of activities, Kaanapali beach is a great place to spend the day and evening..
