Virtual Tour of Maui

He ho‘omaka hou -- A new beginning

As we navigate through this difficult time, let’s all think about better days ahead. New ways to work safely, new ways to connect with family and friends, new ways to travel, and new places to go. When you are ready, the island paradise of Maui looks forward to welcoming you (or welcoming you back) for a new beginning, but with the same, familiar spirit of Aloha.

Ka'anapali Beach coastline near Ka'anapali Beach Hotel Hawaii

Kā‘anapali Beach

The sun-drenched shoreline of Kā‘anapali was long ago home to a flourishing ancient Hawaiian community. Its famous landmark, Puu Kekaa (known as Black Rock) was a sacred place where the natives believed the souls of the deceased would leap off to go from the physical world into the spiritual realm. As the plantation era came and sugar cane operations overtook the island, these villages gradually disappeared. Today, this resort area has expanded into a world-class destination with luxury oceanfront resorts, championship golf courses, shopping, and dining. For families, honeymooners, empty nesters, or sun-seekers, the golden stretch of beach remains the main attraction for snorkeling, paddle boarding, sunset sails, whale watching (in season) or simply relaxing for the day.
