Inspirock Rating:
3.9/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web
Jutting out into the ocean and full of crevices for sea life, Black Rock on Kaanapali Beach is one of Maui's premier snorkeling sites. Surrounded by miles of smooth white sand and blue water, the volcanic lava spit is the only one of its kind on the island. The water around the rocks reaches a depth of 7.5 m (25 ft) in some places and houses an array of marine life, including colorful parrotfish, crabs, sea turtles, and others. Strap on your mask, don your flippers, and explore the underwater environment. Though much of the surrounding beach is bordered by upscale hotels, you can get down to the rocks via public access pathways. Keep in mind that there are no restrooms at the beach, but there are public showers. Put Black Rock and other Ka'anapali attractions into our Ka'anapali vacation route planner, and watch your holiday take shape.
