Hanakao'o Beach Park Tours

Hanakao'o Beach Park
On Maui’s north shore, Hanakao’o Beach Park combines a long sandy beach with a grassy picnic area for an ideal beach-day out. Take advantage of this local favorite for snorkeling—sea turtles are frequently spotted—and for strolls along the shore or shaded boardwalk. It's a quieter alternative to the neighboring Kaanapali Beach.

The Basics
Adjacent Kaanapali Beach gets all the attention, which means that if you head to Hanakao’o Beach Park instead, you can have your feet in the sand before the Kaanapali Beach-goers have found a parking spot. Pair time at the park with an exploration of the historic whaling town of Lahaina where you can take surf lessons or attend a traditional luau.

Things to Know Before You Go

  • Hanakao’o Beach Park is frequented by local families and in-the-know tourists.
  • The beach is one of the few in Maui with lifeguards on duty.
  • The park has ample parking, so if you want to check out Kaanapali Beach, you can park at Hanakao’o Beach Park and walk to it along the beach.
  • Showers and bathrooms are available at the park.

How to Get There

Hanakao’o Beach Park is a 40-minute drive from the Kahului Airport and 2.5 miles (4 kilometers) north of central Lahaina. If you don’t have a car on the island, you can take a bus or shuttle to the beach, which is just off Highway 30.

When to Get There
The quiet nature of this expansive beach means it's a great place to get away from the crowds, but if you want even more solitude, avoid visiting on weekends and school holidays when local families typically frequent the beach.

Lahaina Canoe Club at Hanakao’o Beach Park

Hanakao’o Beach Park is commonly referred to as Canoe Beach after the canoe club based at the park. The Lahaina Canoe Club was established in 1971 and is dedicated to preserving ancient Hawaiian and Polynesian culture. The club has traditional outrigger canoes and hosts community outreach programs as well as competitive and recreational paddling events.
Address: 2501 Honoapiilani Hwy, Lahaina, Maui HI 96761, USA
