Best Paddling Spot
With a name like Canoe Beach, what did you expect? The heart of west Maui’s paddling communtiy beats strong at Canoe Beach, and not just for six-man outriggers, but one man kayaks, canoes and paddleboards. Canoe Beach’s easy entry sheltered waters and proximity to one of Maui’s few lifeguard towers makes it an easy pick for beginner paddlers of all levels.
Other votes include Makena, Maliko Gulch, Kam III, Sugar Beach, Thousand Peaks and even Jaws (?). Doesn’t say what season of the year, though.
