Maui’s Kāʻanapali Named The Best Beach in America, Again. Tour It In Pictures Until You Can Visit

It’s not a surprise that over 3 million people a year visit Maui, proclaimed America’s best island and home of  the U.S.’s best beach

With the warm, welcoming aloha spirit of its people, glimpses of Old Hawaii along the undeveloped Road to Hana, mountains, lush valleys, a U.S. National Park, top golf courses, top resorts, and amazing farm-to-table food, it’s seemingly got it all in one small island.

When you think of Hawaii, miles of white sand, crystal clear waters, and palm tree-lined coastline come to mind. Well, that’s what you’ll find on Kāʻanapali Beach, arguably the island’s most popular and beloved beach, first by The Hawaiian Royal Family and later by tourists.

In 1962 The Royal Lahaina Resort opened on 27 acres of beachfront property, and over the years, more top resorts have followed their lead.
