We stayed at the Sheraton, which is at the end of Kaanapali Beach. It faces Black Rock, a popular spot for locals who want to try cliff diving.
There are beach “cabanas” and loungers available to rent from the Sheraton. Other hotels had the same rentals going on. The water was sometimes a little rougher, but mostly pretty calm at the Sheraton end of the beach. We went for a walk down past Whalers’ Village and noticed that the surf is much rougher towards the point and on the other side of it as well.
There were lots of boogie boarders out there having fun. The beach is very wide, and clean – very pleasant for a stroll.
