The largest series of beaches in Kahului are all considered the Kanaha Beaches and the link of five or six of them stretch all the way from the harbor to the airport and are connected to a frontage road with about five or so large parking lots for easy access. These should actually be considered specialty beaches because they are only allowed to be used for special uses during the course of the day.

This is a great spot to learn the wind sprorts.
