Kanaha Beach Park

Among the best kiteboarding and windsurfing on earth.

Kanaha Beach is definitely the beach with the widest variety of every day uses on Maui. It is so important to so many people who live here, but unless you’re a local family, kiteboarder, windsurfer, paddler or fisherman you’ll probably never see it! Kanaha is built around the needs of our island’s residents, and not tourism. It has a family vibe, but also has some more gritty than the sterilized environments found around the resort-centered areas.

Kanaha is also literally adjacent to the airport, parallel to the main runway (so not in the flight path of airplanes like Sprecklesville beach is.) That said, expect to hear the sound of jets on the runway on the east side of the park. Tour helicopters also fly low overhead as this is in the flight path of some tours.
