Getting Around Ka’anapali
If you’re visiting Ka’anapali, you will most likely want to check out nearby Lahaina and perhaps the rest of Maui. Most vacationers rent a car to get around Maui, although there are buses and shuttles available for those on a budget. Active travelers can also rent geared bicycles, which is a great way to explore the stunning natural surroundings of the island.
Maui Car Rental
You can find a car rental at Kahului Airport, which contains all major rental companies, or in other locations throughout Maui. Most resorts provide parking only for their guests, and sometimes charge an additional fee. Whalers Village offers parking for a fee, but you can get your ticket validated in stores and restaurants. If you attend a luau at one of the nearby resorts, you can typically find parking (for a fee in most cases).
Other Transportation in Ka’anapali
There is a complimentary shuttle that operates between the main Ka’anapali resorts and Whalers Village. You can also take the local Lahaina shuttle for just $1.00 per ride.
If you rent a bicycle locally or bring your own bicycle, you can ride along the main roads, which include paved shoulders marked as “Bike Route.” You can also take a charming path along the beach to walk between the area’s major hotels.
Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas Shuttle
Those vacationing at The Westin Ka’anapali Ocean Resort Villas, The Westin Maui Resort and Spa, and Sheraton Maui Resort have access to a complimentary shuttle operating between Ka’anapali and three locations in Lahaina. Guests will be asked to show their room key before boarding the shuttle, which stops at the Lahaina Cannery Mall, Lahaina Gateway Mall, and Hilo Hattie’s.
