When do the whales visit Maui waters?

Humpback whales are usually spotted beginning in November, however the peak months for seeing whales in Hawaiian waters are January through April. Read more about Maui's humpback whales.

Do you have to cross the road to get to the beach?

No. Kaanapali Beach Hotel is truly “on the beach.” The beach begins where our property ends. There is a paved walkway that connects all the hotels, condominiums, and Whaler’s Village Shopping Center along the beach. This allows you to enjoy the beach without necessarily having to walk in the sand. (Very nice for those in wheelchairs.)

Is the beach exclusive to guests of the hotel?
No, there is no private beach in Hawaii. All beach areas have public access.
