Life Is A Beach In Maui, Whether You Prefer Lively Activity Or Calm And Peaceful

At Honua Kai’s Finest, our Maui condo rentals are located in a prime location, whether you prefer the lively activity going on at Kaanapali Beach, or prefer a calmer, less busy beach where you’ll find mostly locals – Hanakao’o Beach. For most people, vacationing in Maui is (almost) all about the beach!

Once named America’s Best Beach, Kaanapali Beach offers three miles of beautiful, clear water and white sand. However, you’ll typically find lots of tourists on the beach, which means crowds. This may be right up your alley if you are visiting the island with friends or your significant other, as many people enjoy mingling with other tourists who are as excited as they are.

From scuba diving adventures to snorkeling, sailing, diving, and jet skiing to cruising on a Catamaran, you’ll find just about any activity you could imagine on Kaanapali Beach. Never a dull moment on Maui’s most popular beach!

What if you prefer a calmer, more peaceful beach experience? You may want to consider Hanakao’o Beach, also known as “canoe beach” because of the fact that it’s home to a canoe club. With a lifeguard on duty part of the time, bathrooms, showers, and lots of sea turtles, Hanakao’o Beach is where you can BBQ, go for a swim, or just relax and soak up some sun. You’ll find some locals and perhaps a few tourists, but nothing compared to the crowds at Kaanapali Beach. It’s also a great beach if you have small children, considering it’s less crowded and a smaller beach.

Hanakao’o Beach is located at the south end of Kaanapali Beach, and it isn’t far away if you’re staying in one of our Maui condo rentals. Just under 2 1/2 miles away, you can drive the distance in about four minutes. For those who are active and enjoy a good walk, you could walk to the beach in about 45 minutes to an hour.

Whatever your preference, life is a beach in Maui! Many of our luxurious condo rentals offer spectacular views of the beach and ocean, and you’ll enjoy not only supremely comfortable accommodations, but the fact that you can be at the beach in just seconds or minutes, depending on which beach you prefer. No matter what adventures you have planned, be sure to book one of our Maui vacation rentals today!
