Sun Bathing at the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Resort

There are those who love to sunbathe. They find a beach and simply soak up the rays all day. Throughout West Mali, you can take part in this less than strenuous vacation pastime. Consider laying down your towel or setting up a beach chair at Ka’anapali Beach. This is the best place to see and be seen.
