When we highlight the fact that our West Maui accommodations are located on Kaanapali Beach, it may not excite those who are unfamiliar with the area. If they checked TripAdvisor's 2013 Travelers' Choice Beach Awards, they would find Kaanapali Beach at number one, among the top ten beaches in the United States.
The awards were recently unveiled, showing that four Hawaii beaches made the top ten list, but that's not surprising, considering that we are located in a tropical paradise. We were especially proud that Kaanapali Beach was at the top of the list, reminding us that our tastes are shared by most people.
The other Hawaii beaches to make the list were Lanikai Beach in Windward Oahu, which came in at number five. Another Maui beach made the list at number six, and that was Wailea Beach. Finally, the Hanauma Bay Nature Reserve in East Oahu ranked number 10 on the list. The rest of the winners were located in Florida and California, with one win in Virginia.
It was nice to hear that Maui claimed two spots on the national top ten list, and not at all surprising. For those who prioritize beautiful beaches on their vacations, you might like to check out our Kaanapali Beachfront condos. Not only is Kaanapali Beach visually stunning, with reefs at its northern edge for snorkeling and scuba, but there are also shops, restaurants, and numerous wonderful activities to enjoy. It's not a far drive from the bustling, historic Lahaina Town, and Lahaina Harbor, where you can hop on a whale watching charter, sunset cruise, or even a submarine ride, if that interests you.
There are plenty of things to enjoy on a West Maui vacation, and we hope you have a marvelous time, whatever you choose to do. Mahalo for reading this week!
