Kanaha Beach Park
Kanaha Beach Park is a long stretch of publicly owned wild coast on the North Shore of Maui (Hawaii). It is comprised of white sand beaches, coastal dunes, wetlands, and a developed beach park. Kanaha Beach provides recreation for many folks on Maui, including windsurfers, surfers, kiteboarders, pole fishermen, divers, canoe paddlers, campers, joggers, bikers, general beach goers, and many others. Kanaha Beach also supports some of the last remaining strongholds of native coastal plants and animals left on sand dunes and in wetlands along the north shore of Maui.
The beautification and restoration of Kanaha Beach has been on-going for decades, and is only possible with regular support from the community. To volunteer to help Kanaha Beach, call Jan Dapitan at Community Work Day (808)877-2524, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.cwdhawaii.org.
