Picture yourself driving along the edge of turquoise water with luxurious hotels in the rearview mirror and a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean. Whether you’re catching up on your reading list or catching your breath after a parasailing trip, Kaanapali, Hawaii, offers a gorgeous setting for a rejuvenating getaway in an enchanting small-town setting. Surround yourself in vibrant color and set the cruise-control as you explore the west coast of Maui in a Kaanapali rental car from Travelocity.
Sitting pretty on the deep blue sea, the small district of Kaanapali has become quite the resort destination. Nearby neighbors, including the West Maui Forest Reserve to the east and the village of Lahaina to the south, add a touch of island flavor and a breathtaking landscape. The waterfront Honoapiilani Highway and one of our well-equipped Kaanapali car rentals is all you need to get this trip on the right path. Make sure you leave some room in the trunk for snorkeling gear, because the butterfly fish are especially social in these calm, crystal-blue waters.
Park your wheels on the north side of the village and lay your towel on the sand at Pu`u Keka`a (aka Black Rock), located on the north end of Kaanapali Beach. Folklore has it that the spirits of local villagers left from Black Rock to meet their ancestors in the after-life. After you’ve peeked into the unknown, hurry to the nearest bon fire for a traditional Luau where you can savor local flavors and sway like the waves. The resorts in Lahaina are famous for these after-hours festivals, so hop in one of our car rentals in Kaanapali and follow the scent of roast pig southward.
