Where is Kaanapali Shores?
Scenically situated between the West Maui Mountains and the Pacific Ocean, Kaanapali Shores sits directly on the sand of Kaanapali North Beach. You'll be surrounded by the mountains, valleys, and coastal landscapes of West Maui and only five miles north of Lahaina, a historic whaling village and the former capital of the Hawaiian Kingdom. Kahului Airport, which services both inter-island and international flights, is just 29 miles to the east.
Things to do at Kaanapali Shores
With elegant studios and suites that are outfitted with full kitchens, WiFi, washer/dryers, and ocean or garden views, Kaanapali Shores offers guests a variety of indoor comforts. But what makes this resort so special are the gorgeous amenities that await just outside your door.
All of our rentals at Kaanapali Shores enjoy access to two freshwater pools - one of which is a recently renovated garden pool with waterfalls, fountains, and LED lighting, while the other is an oceanfront pool that hosts free daily scuba lessons. Take a morning yoga class (for an additional fee), relax in the sauna or in one of the two jet spas, and get a bit of exercise in the fitness center or on the tennis courts.
When you need some old fashioned island relaxation, grab a drink at the poolside bar, book a spa treatment, take a complimentary hula or lei-making class, and enjoy the spectacle of the Polynesian Show each Wednesday night.
Day Trips from Kaanapali Shores
Thanks to a convenient position on the coast of West Maui, our Kaanapali Shores vacation rentals are only a short drive from historic towns, mountainous trails, and some of Maui's most beloved beaches and coves.
Spend a day strolling the oceanfront city of Lahaina, a 19th-century whaling town that has since been added to the National Register of Historic Places. As the former stomping ground of Herman Melville and hundreds of other sailors, Lahaina is now known for its art galleries, restaurants, and independent shops.
Play a round of golf at the Kaanapali Golf Courses just three miles south, watch the professional surfers at play in Honolua Bay seven miles north, or book your own lesson with the Royal Hawaiian Surf Academy in Lahaina. Pack up your snorkeling gear and explore the waters near Black Rock, make the breathtaking ascent of Waihee Ridge, or enjoy one of the world's most spectacular rainforest drives between Hana and Kahului on the island's eastern shores.
