Our Island Paradise

Aston Mahana, Ka'anapali Beach, Maui

Among the many things that we love about the Mahana is the fact that the Kaanapali Beach Walk starts/ends just outside the parking lot gate. It is a great walk, almost 6 miles round trip if you go to the end, or pick any of the landmarks below for a shorter version. If you're planning to run, I suggest leaving early (by 7:00 at least) as it does get a little congested in some areas.

Walk across the parking lot at the Mahana and head out the gate. Don't forget to stop by the Mahana Desk to get the code!

 Duke's Beach House Restaurant

Duke's Beach House Restaurant. Definitely try to make it over here for dinner during your stay. The calamari appetizer is to die for, as is pretty much everything else on the menu!

This marks the beginning of the Sheraton complex. Cross the crosswalk and continue following the sidewalk.The beach walk isn't well marked through here. Just keep heading toward the beach and to the left. You may hit a dead end or two, but eventually you'll get back to the beach.
