Kaanapali Beach is absolutely beautiful. The walkway along the beach it's easy to walk on. A stroller is capable of maneuvering through this whole area. We went when there was a Merchant's sale going on. Good prices. And just a beautiful area to see

I went for a run from Kahana and run the beach walk for about 2 miles. Some of the walk fronts the beach and some weaves around behind the resorts. Nice views and beach access. I later came back and snorkel between the Westin and...More
