Loved swimming in the warm water. Aah... Sunsets are gorgeous here, and there is lovely white sand all along the shore.

This beach can be busy when closer to whalers village. I would ensure to have sandals as the sand gets really warm. It was great for a long run down to black rock in the mornings. If you're lucky enough to stay at a resort on the beach then you are going to have a great vacation.

The section of beach our hotel was located on was rather small but very well maintained. We were able to walk the beach and had a great time watching the sea turtles that were surprisingly close to the shore. My husband and I spent more time in the pool as I do not like the salt water in my eyes!

We visited Black Rock via walking through the Sheraton. I didn't think it was going to be all of that since, there were so many people on the beach...and it's literally right in front of the Sheraton. I couldn't have been more wrong. We got in the water where people were just swimming and put on our snorkels and there... More

The atmosphere for the Sunday Brunch, the most Hawaiian experience and friendly staff. The entertainment is great with musicians and Hula dancers working the floor of the dining area.

This is one beach that we visited and it was a really nice beach. Very open and lots of places to snorkel. Had a chance to see a giant green sea turtle. It is being harazzed by so many swimmers that the turtle had to find a way to move around the swimmers as everyone was trying to get close... More

We had a beautiful condo on the west coast of Maui. This area has nice restaurants, great beaches, and lots to do and see. If I ever return, I will definitely stay in this area again.

North of this beach there is an early morning snorkelling opportunity before the wind picks up. I recommend reading beach signs, talking to life guards and if you have kids tech them how to swim with a shore break.. It can get dangerous if the tide is in the right spot. q

This beach is accessible to most of the hotels in the region, and is clean, well maintained and the water is beautiful and warm. Just the type of tropical beach you dream about. Lounges, umbrellas and towels are available readily, and good food abounds all along the strip of beach. Islands of Molokai and Lanai are visible.
