Ka’anapali Beach

Where Hawaiian Royalty Came to Play

Ka’anapali Beach is nestled between historic Lahaina town and the well-renowned resort area of Kapalua. Ka’anapali is Hawaiian for, “rolling cliffs” which is evident when you first experience the marine preserve and snorkeler’s paradise at Black Rock, which separates Ka’anapali’s north and south beaches. Leilani’s is located in the heart of Ka’anapali’s south beach, also known as, “Dig-Me Beach.” From our elevated ocean view unlike anything else in Ka’anapali, you’ll dine along the three-mile stretch of magical white sand where Hawaii’s aliʻi (royalty) originally came to surf, paddle and play traditional Hawaiian games. The tradition of visiting Ka’anapali to play in its pristine tropical waters and adventure along its breathtaking coastline is still alive and well today. Whether you’re a first-time visitor or you live five minutes away, when you step foot in Ka’anapali, you are officially on vacation.

Ka’anapali has won multiple awards for ‘Best beach on Maui’, and even for ‘Best beach in America‘. It is an epicenter for watersport activities including surfing, snorkeling, scuba diving, jet skiing, parasailing, whale watching and much more. On land, Ka’anapali boasts a 36-hole golf course, shuttles to Kapalua and Honolua Bay, some of the finest resort living in the world and of course Whalers Village. The gateway to Whalers Village from the makai (ocean) side is Leilani’s on the Beach and our sister restaurant Hula Grill Ka’anapali.

After a beach day full of adventure or pure relaxation, there’s no better place to come home and celebrate with friends and family than Leilani’s on the Beach.
