West Maui: Ka’anapali

By in Travel

DSC01231.jpgMoving from South to West, the Honoapi’ilani Highway along the coast has breathtaking scenary! However there was a fire up the hill so we were stuck in a traffic jam…watching the firefighting helicoptors (it’s yellow!) scooping buckets of water from the ocean carrying them up.
We booked a condo at Ka’anapali, the biggest and most commercial resort beach on Maui.
View from our 10th floor room! So stunning~
I like the Ka’anapali Beach more than Waelia Beach…clearer bluer water, less snobbish and way bigger~ The water is so beautiful to swim, though a bit unpredictable. Every 10 mins or so there’d be a couple huge wave hits (casualties: Joan scratched her back by the ocean bottom sand, Yan’s sunglasses got washed away ^^;;). We have so much fun here. It’s paradise!
DSC01252.jpgNo bar nor drink served there though, so no cocktail sipping ^^;; (Ritz Carlton has a beach front bar, they located on the black rock seen in the above pictures). There’s a very touristy mall right next to our condo. We were too tired to drive at night so we just, even though we knew they’re going to be $$$ and not good. No choice, we went to this tacky island decor beach front restaurant. The other gals’ orders were very bad (clam chowder and salad). My $18 Teriyaki Steak is quite alright. Meat quite tender, tasty sweet mango sauce~

    The pool is your condo’s?
    The steak looks good, actually real chunks of mango.
    Is there any water sports available on the beach?

    Yeah the pool is part of condo, lots of older people were using it (instead of the ocean which is just couple steps away ^^;;)

    Watersport…the waves are too strong to do much I think (surfers have their own super strong wave surf spot, they stayed out of the beach). Most young people have a small board and just ride along the wave. There were sailboats, many snorkling.
