None would expect to find a beautiful beach behind an industrial area and Kahului Airport but Kanaha Beach Park is right there yet it is amazingly scenic.
To reach this beach you need to head north on the Hana Highway and turn right onto Hobron Avenue and the right-east onto Amala Place. The road is a little old and the ride a little bumpy but it is the quickest way through the industrial area to reach the beach. If you keep driving you will eventually find the park on the left, with four or five places to turn where you can park. Select a parking spot, park and walk further.
It is a large park with tonnes of grass and shady areas. The facilities and amenities include restrooms, showers, sports field with volleyball nets, BBQ grills, picnic tables, and a lifeguard on duty. The grounds are well maintained and it is a family park and beach, an amazing place for a party, picnic or just a regular day swimming and relaxing at the beach.
It is good for kayaking, SUP, and windsurfing so it is very popular among windsurfers and kite-boarders. It is considered to be one of Maui's best locations for windsurfers and kite-boarders. The water is clean and the beach is well maintained. The ride to reach the beach might be a little bumpy but it's worth it.
