Ka'anapali Beach

Sheraton Black Rock, Airport-Kahekili Beach
  • High surf on the up north which is wrapping around to Kaanapali, however, conditions were pretty nice yesterday and should improve more today. Don't get too close to shore as unexpected surge can move you around more than you might expect. Go south for calmer conditions.
  • Christmas break but the crowds are still small.
  • Surf 2-4ft
  • Turtles as usual. Don't forget they are protected so give them space but enjoy.
  • Sunny, with a high near 81. Breezy, with an east northeast wind 8 to 18 mph, with gusts as high as 23 mph.
