Description
So close to Maui's main airport that you can hear the jumbo jets roar overhead, this county-run beach park is ground zero for kiteboarders, whether you're a pro already or just looking to learn how to ... Read more
sail over the waves with a giant kite in hand. Locals understandably feel territorial about this special spot. Exercise caution if you plan on camping overnight (advance permit required; note the campground is currently closed on Monday and Tuesday nights).

Here is an amazing beach for just about everything: walking, swimming, laying on the sand, bbqing, windsurfing, kiting, etc... It is actually near the airport so just under 30 min from our property.

Enjoy Kanaha when you first arrive in Maui. It's close to the airport and the main town of Kahului. It's your starting place for windsurfing in Maui. It's where I learned to windsurf, and it's where I go to have fun with friends! Right off the beach there's smooth water to cruise around on, this is the staging area for all of your adventures! Head down on a broad reach and you'll find yourself at Lowers. This break is slow and playful, perfect for getting into the swing of things. It was here that I first fell in love with wavesailing, then later I starting learning how to actually do it! Look up and you can see Uppers, as in accordance with the name! Uppers requires a higher skill level. Fast breaking, hollow, pitchy waves that come from several different directions makes life difficult for novices. If you want to go on a little escapade, Camp One is perfect. The reefs there are beautiful, the wind unobscured, the waves rolling; a perfect little paradise for some bump and jump riding!

Lot of people going this beach and spend their time with their family and friends. Some of 'em they celebrate an occasional like birthday party. Some just having grilled, some folks do the wind surf and sky surfer. It's a prefect place for bunch of who want to do activities up the shore of the beach. :)

Kanaha is very popular with windsurfers and kiteboarders. It is far from Maui's tourist centers, and is mostly populated by locals (always a good sign!) Kahana has a lot of facilities, including BBQ pits, campgrounds, toilets, and volley ball courts. Highly recommended.
