    Scenic beach by the hotels, evening are amazing, its by the rocks waves were pretty intense when we visited. Less crowded compared to Waikiki.
    Lot of fine dining and stay places nearby.
    If you are into diving this is one of the beaches, you have to walk to the farthest end to the right and there are diving spots there. While we were there it was allowed and people were diving. Sunset is too good!

    A beautiful, quiet beach with amazing cliff diving/jumping, snorkeling and sunsets!!

    Valet park at the beautiful Sheraton Hotel, and head down to their Cliff Dive Grill for cocktails and dinner. You'll get a front row seat for the cliff diving ceremony, as well as the gorgeous sunset!

    Sunset is awesome, waves aren’t that smooth. It’s great if you are into cliff jumping. Not that crowded. People snorkel as well.
    If you are experimenting swimming Waikiki would be a better option. So many really good places near by. There are people mostly diving always it’s nice to watch and chill !

    We went snorkeling all up and down the coast and always came back to Black Rock Beach. Go to the north end by the black rocks, it is a bit more crowded but closer to the good snorkeling spot and a bit more sheltered from the wind.

    You don't have to go far out in the water at all to experience a wide variety of colourful fish. Go further out past the cliff jumping rocks to see bigger and more fish.

    We saw sea turtles almost every time we were here, even in the shallow waters.

    This was honestly one of our favorite beaches on our Maui trip last April! We got scuba gear from snorkel bobs and swam along the black rock for hours, which is where many turtles hung out! The cliff jumping was personally a little treacherous/traumatizing for me but I’m glad I did it— would def not recommend for small children or older adults. Great to sunbathe and sneak into the hotel bar for a drink after the sun goes down 😁
