Ka'anapali Beach

Sheraton Black Rock, Airport-Kahekili Beach
  • Mild winds. A south swell is predicted and I do see some decent size shore break but the rocks around Black Rock look relatively calm, however watch for surge and shore break around the shoreline.
  • Check out the Whaler Condo webcam.
  • Surf 2-4ft.
  • Turtles as usual. Don’t forget they are protected so give them space but enjoy.
  • ENE wind 8 to 10 kt. Isolated showers before noon. . Waves 1 ft or less.

Olowalu Mile Marker 14

Black Rock, Kahekili-Airport Beach
  • Strong north east trades may still be affecting this spot. The predicted increase in the south swell may all affect this spot throughout the day. If you see better conditions closer to where you are staying I would go to those locations. If you see white caps on the water don’t go out. Stay close to shore if you do as the wind can come in strong at anytime.
  • Don’t get your car stuck in the sand and be sure to park completely off the highway!
  • Surf 1-3ft.
  • Turtles! They are protected so give them space but enjoy.
  • Isolated showers before noon. Sunny, with a high near 79. East northeast wind 7 to 11 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20%.

  • Small surf is predicted to pick up but there it isn’t too bad yet. Light winds this morning. Watch for increased winds and waves as the day progresses. Get out there early!! Head to the most protected and southern most spots like Ahihi-Kinau and La Perouse Bay if the day allows.
