My favorite part in walking the beaches was finding sand dollars. This was my first experience finding them, and it is well known that keeping them is illegal. When they are alive they are brown in color and their underside is covered with little hairy legs. Whenever I found one alive on the beach I would pick it up with my shovel and toss it back into the water. I found out from another beach comber that they can sting you, and some had done that to her.

The sand is white and cool (unlike sand on the Atlantic coast) and the water blue. Distant views imitate the Carribean. There are enough shells to keep one interested, especially at the south end of the island, and enough sand art if shells aren't your thing.
At Lahaina Inn, our beach was wide enough that you had your own space but narrow enough that you didn't have a hike to get into the water. Walking in either direction revealed clean, well-manicured homes and rental properties, not that commercial beach feel.
All in all, I think it was the atmosphere of this particular resort and its beach that really allowed me to BE laid back and enjoy my time off.
