This is a very nice beach. Lots of room to spread out and enjoy the beach. Only drawback is no lifeguard and no life preservers available if someone gets in trouble. A young man nearly drowned the last day we were there. Luckily some good samaritans got to him, first, with a paddleboard.

Loved Black Rock by the Sheraton where we saw Sea Turtles feeding in the morning and fish all day long. Snorkeling was awesome!

The stretch of Ka'anapali Beach is the most beautiful beach in Maui. Snorkel, swim, sun or just people watch. Heavenly!

It was windy while we were there (not usually like that I heard) but if you like to people watch on a big sand beach, it's really nice. The water is good for swimming and usually good for snorkeling around black rock.
Conditions vary though so on our trip we found snorkeling was better elsewhere.
