“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

I just wish the water would've been warmer but that was the only dislike I had. We were there on their "off" season so that might explain the cold water. Other than that everything was beautiful.

“Pretty beach but crowded...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

Unfortunately, this beach is overdeveloped and often crowded... it is nice for a long walk, but I try to avoid it. Have stayed in hotels on Ka'anapali several times over the years and have learned to stay in other locations. However, the weather is probably the best on the island... almost always sunny when other places might be socked-in with clouds.

“big and sandy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Great beach to hang and catch some waves, then on the south side-good snorkeling at Black Rock. Park at the Sheraton Hotel, pay the valet. Good stuff!

“Great Family Snorkling.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Amazing snorkling, Buy your gear at the ABC store and save lots of money in rental fees. Rent your chairs and be comfortable!

“beautiful sandy beach, waves can be a little big”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

The beach and sand was beautiful. The waves can be a little big making it difficult for children and non swimmers to enjoy. September is a windy season for the north part of Kaanapali and there were days that we were not able to enjoy the beach due to sand flying around. Overall I love the beach though.
