Kanaha Beach Park


  1. Volleyball
Beautiful, Kanahâ Beach Park rests on a peaceful coastal expanse between Kahului Bay and Spreckelsville Beach. Breathtaking views of the West Maui Mountains and ‘Îao Valley await visitors. A swim, a picnic in the shade of the tall trees flanking the beach, or a game of beach volleyball can be enjoyed as well.

Lae’ula O Kai Canoe Club’s headquarters is maintained at the beachfront pavilion, and windsurfers often make good use of Kanahâ’s favorable offshore breezes. Street signs along Amala Place point the way. The beach is within walking distance of Kahului Airport and easily accessible from Hâna Highway 36 with ample parking available.
