It would be wrong to visit a place known for having some of the best beaches in the world and not step foot on even one of them, so when we had a little extra time after our day in Haleakala National Park, we knew exactly how to spend it.
Since Maui is an island (obviously), there are beaches literally everywhere, but we didn’t have a ton of time to work with so we thought it best to find one close to the cruise ship port. And so we found Kanaha Beach Park, located near Kahului Airport. We were only there for less than an hour, so I don’t have very much to say about our experience and don’t have any tips or fun facts about this one. However, I can say that it was a very pretty beach, easy to get to from the cruise ship, and had some windsurfers who were fun to watch (though I didn’t get any photos of them).
There was a lot of interesting coral and debris on the beach…
I don’t know that I would go out of my way to visit Kanaha Beach, but if you find yourself near Kahului and have some time to kill, it is definitely worth checking out. Additional information about visiting this beach can be obtained here.
