In the past, Karen and I have done our Maui morning walk from the condo and, heading north, we walked along the mauka (mountain) side of the road, among the high-rise condos with a few views of the ocean.

But this year—ah!—we’ve really enjoyed taking a short drive to walk on the Ka’anapali Beachwalk. From the Hyatt Regency on the south, to the Sheraton Maui on the north, it’s about a 3.0 roundtrip walk. I love that it runs between the ocean and the west Maui mountains. It’s also an easy, flat walkway made of fabricated boards. And there’s lots of people watching amid the scenery.
