Kāʻanapali Beachwalk

The Evening Light Show of Kaʽanapali Beach
In 2003, Kaʽanapali Beach won the title of "Best Beach in America" as compiled by "Dr. Beach." While the rankings for such a title include factors such as sand softness, water temperature, and levels of algae, there's one factor not on the list that alone justifies Kaʽanapali's title:


While everywhere from Lahaina to Kapalua is technically referred to as "West Maui," Kaʽanapali is the only place that actually faces due West.

As a result, Kaʽanapali is treated each night to a fiery sunset on the horizon. Much like snowflakes, every sunset has its own unique traits that make it different from the rest. Consequently, this is a show that reinvents itself each night and never ceases to get old.

What's better is that since Kaʽanapali Beach is more than a mile long, there is room to spread out and find your own corner to watch the flaming sky.
