Fun beach and there is a sea turtle that frequents this area around sunset
Beach, food and places to stay
Great spot for swimming with the family. Take a paddle
One of our favorites. Best sand.
Among the best snorkeling and paddle boarding on the island. Wear proper sunscreen so the area stays protected.
Gorgeous place, there are MANY different beaches, south Kaanapali, north kaanapali and many littler ones, all with their own unique features. Choose wisely!!!! ....and spend lots of time here!
Must hit. Went in Oct. Warm water and not overcrowded. Plenty of restaurants nearby
A nice beach to relax on. There are better snorkeling north of here but this beach also allows for some swimming so it's a good mix.
This is one of the big resort parts of the Island. Green and beautiful with great beaches to watch the sunset from.
Black Rock has great snorkeling and ppl jumping into the water from above. Cool place!
Just got back from the vacation of my life. My family ranged from ages 80-8 and we all had an amazing time, will be going back.
Everything you could want to do is right here!
Sunday brunch is amazing!
Great stay..fabulous staff clean facility..great value
If Black Rock is swarming with snorkelers you can get some lovely fish action just swimming out about 100 feet from the Whaler, KBR area...not quite as many fish but a lovely variety and lots of space
gentle waves and smooth sand, great for kids
If you are bothered by the hordes at Black Rock, just swim out about 50 feet from the whaler and you hit a nice reef with less dense fish life but you will have it mostly to yourself
Get pictures of the beach every 6 hours and watch the beauty of water hues change. 6am, 12pm and 6pm
Beat the mid-day heat -- find a cool spot under a tree :-)
The burger at Maui Fish and Pasta in Whaler's Village is one of the best in town!
Very nice and windy
Paddle boards are so much fun!!
It's beautiful ... But there is a sewage treatment plant nearby so be prepared to smell some not so pleasant scents.
Beautiful sunsets. Every night. Love this place.
Crowded and touristy, all restaurants look good but food and service are sub-par, especially Leilani's and Hula Grill. Ok for happy hour but stay away for dinner. Whalers Village is nice to walk.
We saw four spotted eagle rays today snorkeling around the reef at black rock!! We also saw a small shark (possibly a white tip reef shark)!
The beach is beautiful but the waves are rough!! Great for kids - not so great for adults wading in the water, unless you want to get knocked down by the massive waves!
Beautiful place for a sunset but plan to share it with a few others.
Try the ocean.
Great waves to surf!!
Great snorkeling. Get a cabana. They're cheap and worth it
One of my favorite places in the world. Thinking of moving here! =)
Missing my beach at Ka'anapali! Heading back soon!
Leave your stress in the mainland.
Great conditions for stand-up paddle boarding. You can bring snorkel gear on your board over to Black Rock.
Make sure you tie your swimsuit tight. Just incase you get a sneak attack from a wave ...
Best beach on Maui! Great sand, great snorkeling, heavenly sunsets!! You have to go at least once in your lifetime! =)
A bit touristy because of its location by the Sheraton, but still pretty quiet early in the day. Join the locals and jump off Black Rock!
It gets pretty windy here. Be prepared to get sandblasted!
Eat at Sonz @ Swan Court. Super old school. Like they make sure you have your cocktail before they give you the menu. The waiters are fully dressed in long sleeves and ties.
Sit, relax, close your eyes, take in a deep breath, exhale all of troubles of the world. Open your eyes.
