Farther north along the west Maui coast is Hawaii's first master-planned family resort. Pricey midrise hotels line nearly 3 miles of lovely gold-sand beach; they're linked by a landscaped parkway and a walking path along the sand. Golf greens wrap around the slope between beachfront and hillside properties.
Whalers Village, a seaside mall with 48 shops and restaurants, plus the best little whale museum in Hawaii -- and other restaurants are easy to reach on foot along the oceanfront walkway or by resort shuttle, which also serves the small West Maui Airport just to the north. Shuttles also go to Lahaina, 3 miles to the south, for shopping, dining, entertainment, and boat tours. Near the entrance of Kaanapali is the Kaanapali golf course which has 2 courses, a north course and a south course. At the end of your game, enjoy some fine dining at Hawaii’s well known Roy’s restaurant. This area definitely has more of a resort like feel.
