Beautiful lunch on the beach!

We stopped for lunch at Ka'anapali Beach after a day of snorkeling! We ate at the Hula Grill. Great food and incredible beach view! Sunsets here are quite special.

This is really one of the best beaches to snorkel right off the beach from. However, make sure you swim out to BlackRock in order to see anything. All the wildlife is out by the rocks and coral.

We spent a few hours at the beach together and enjoyed the beautiful turquoise water and lovely scenic beach. Turtles were swimming in the water and were easy to see from offshore and while snorkeling in the water. Recommend this beach for a beautiful Maui memory.

An excellent beach near black rock. The kids jumped off black rock. We all snorkled and even saw a few sea turtles. Not much shade on the beach so keep that in mind on hot days. You HAVE to visit this beach if you are in the area.

Had to walk a short distance from our place (Maui Sands) but it's a great beach to swim at! Great snorkeling there too!

This was a beautiful beach. The water was perfect and it looks like a beach you only see in a picture. The sand is golden, the water is clear and blue. Turtles even come nearby and swim around. It was a perfect place to spend a day!!

We enjoyed this beach. The water was beautiful. Snorkeling is ok too. The water was not too rough. Parking can be tough. We went to the Old Airport Rd entrance by the Westin. Bathrooms and showers were great. Even have grills and gazebos.
