One of the upsides of Kahana is that it is located right on the coastline. It takes a very short commitment of time to head to the beach for a quick dip, snorkel, surf or dive. Kahana is located very close to the shoreline communities of Napili, Kapalua, and Kaanapali. There is not a large number of beach options that are located right in Kahana, but if you include the nearby communities there are some great options for shoreline recreation and white sandy beaches to choose from.
Honokowai is not known as a hotspot of culinary activity. Guests who are staying here has a limited selection of restaurants to choose from. However, there are restaurants here that are attracting a lot of attention among locals and guests. Honokowai Okazuya & Deli is one of these restaurants. They are famous for the dishes that they serve using freshly caught fishes. They also have vegan options and deli sandwiches. Dollie’s Pub & Cafe is a popular spot in Honokowai that serves Italian cuisine in a friendly atmosphere.
The hotels of Kahana are mainly comprised of mixed-use condominium buildings that have units that can be rented by the night. Technically, many of them would be considered “bed and breakfast” units instead of hotels because they are located in mixed-use buildings. There are some great ocean views that you can find here, and the convenience to the ocean make for an ideal location for those who appreciate recreational activities in (or on) the water and would like to reside close by.

ahana does not have any golf courses that are located inside of the region. However, just South in the town of Kaanapali, you will find some great golfing options. A few minutes to the North in the town of Kapalua you will find what many people believe to be the best courses on the island where some of the largest Maui golf tournaments can be found. The winds can become a factor in the afternoons on both courses but nothing like you will find on the other side of the island when playing courses like the dunes at Maui Lani or the Elliar Golf Course in Kihei.
