Kaanapali Beach is stunning.  It may be one of the best beaches on the island and, in my opinion, one of my favorite beaches ever!  The contrast of colors will take your breath away with its beautiful turquoise water and rose colored sand!  The snorkeling is amazing and the backdrop is Lanai and Molokai…seriously, what’s not to love about it!!
