Kapalua Maui

Maui has been voted again and again best island in the world by Conde Nast readers. And Kaanapali Beach is one of the top most sought after destination.Where else can you find beautiful beaches, top class resort and golf courses, shoping centers, proximity of a charming town and some of the best restaurant oin Hawaii?

In ancient times, the rulers of Maui savored Ka'anapali as their royal retreat and playground. They liked the perfect stretch of white sand beach, the gentle waves, the ideal weather, and the broad swath of green that swept up the slopes of the rainbow-laced Kahalawai, the West Maui Mountains.

Maui's "royals" surfed, raced their canoes, feasted at lu'au lasting for weeks, and, where the Ka'anapali Golf Courses now blanket the land, they played ulu maika, a form of lawn bowling using stones.

Ka'anapali 's two championship golf courses are open to all. One is the creation of the eminent Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the other designed by Arthur Jack Snyder. The way the courses are laid out, both duffers and pros get a good game. The only problem is whales. If they're jumping offshore in their fantastic gymnastics, nobody seems to make par. The magnificent vistas of sea and mountains are distracting enough to be considered outright hazards on the links.

 

 

Watch the video below, it is fantastic and give you a glimpse of what Kaanapali looked like in 1964.

PLAY
Kaanapali Beach is one of the top beach in the world. A beachwalk allows you to leisurely stroll the about 3 miles long beach. Whale watching in season, parasailing, snorkling, scuba diving and all other water sports are avilable. If you are looking for a bespokle experience magificent boats are available for private cruises. Of course, Kaanapali would not be complete without 2 fantastic golf courses, the Royal Kaanapali, Course, which hosted theWendy's Champions Tour SKIN game, and the Kaanapali Kai Course.
