In the event the water is too dangerous, the life guards will post red flags as a warning. Ka'anapali beach is located about two miles north of Lahaina along West Maui's shore. From Lahaina, head west on highway The Ka'anapali Resort is well marked and just off the highway.
Public access signs near the shore direct you down to the beach. If you only take one photo of a beach while you are visiting Maui, may it be this one.
Nearly all of the seaside resorts in this area back up to Ka'anapali Beach, a three mile stretch of sand suitable for frolicking with a sidewalk that runs the entire length by the hotels to Black Rock. Black Rock slices across the beach and is a popular spot for snorkelers and scuba divers. Those in search of their scuba certification on this part of the island will likely do your first dive at Black Rock.
There are also plenty more opportunities to whet your appetite for water sports such as parasailing, wind surfing and jet skis. Like all Maui beaches, this beach is open to the public. But public parking is woefully inadequate. The parking areas on the better end of the beach north can be very tough to find an open spot — and I frequently have found myself parking in the Whalers Village parking lot.
You can have your parking ticket validated for three free hours of parking by stores in Whalers Village with most purchases. Resort owned beach showers and most shop bathrooms are publicly accessible. During Winter and Summer seasons there are many swells that can be very dangerous. If you see the crashing waves look out for warning signs and ask the attendants at the beach shacks advice on the conditions.
