For this brach to be situated in front of several resorts it wasn't that crowded at all. There are restaurants, a small mall, and several hotels. Despite however, it was never one crowded during my stay. Perhaps this was due to amenities that the resorts offered.

We love it here! Everyday I walk the Beach walk from North of Black Rock near Honua Kai to South of Black Rock near Hanakaao Beach. The area is beautiful. The beach has rocks and coral in areas. Just N of Black Rock is a lovely sandy beach. The area near Ka'anapali can be congested with a lot of activity... More

Always an amazing time on Maui. Stayed at the Marriott this time and it was great. The people of Maui are so warm and welcoming.

Terrific sand, very peaceful, relaxing spot. Not very wide and only moderate surf (depending on weather). Not crowded when we were there (March).

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.
