Kahana & Napili

Between the West Maui resorts of Kā‘anapali and Kapalua, Kahana and Nāpili are lined with rocky coves and picturesque bays, the very features that have attracted the timeshares, condominiums and cozy hotels that mark this stretch of shoreline. Nāpili Bay, a crest of golden sand leading into sparkling blue water, offers a clear view of the neighbor island of Moloka‘i. Its soft sands are paradise for children, who love to splash in the kid-sized waves with nary a rock to stub a tiny toe. Because Hawaiian green sea turtles, or honu, know a good thing when they see one, they congregate over at Nāpili Point, near Honokeana Cove and its sparkling snorkeling sights. Kahana has several shopping and dining options, ranging from Maui Brewing Company’s brew pub to Roy’s Kahana Bar & Grill at Kahana Gateway Shopping Center on Keka‘a Drive.
