can choose for your family beach vacation. Below,

you will find many different locations, and what

they will offer you and your family.

Maui

Throughout the West Coast of Maui, you’ll have many

Napili Kai also offers complimentary programs for

children ages 6 – 12 from mid June to the end of

hotel is located in a quiet setting surrounded by

two scenic golf courses and a large sandy beach

that kids never seem to get enough of.

Mololai family adventures

The island of Molokai is filled with empty beaches,
