Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa

Maui : Ka'anapali

Relaxing Hawaiian resort on Ka'anapali Beach

Legend tells us the last chief of Maui, Kahekili (Thunderer), proved his spiritual strength by leaping from sacred Pu’u Keka’a (Black Rock) to the Pacific. Each evening with sunset painting the sky, a young cliff diver honors his heritage each evening by re-tracing footsteps in the sand on beautiful Ka’anapali Beach. A chant of old Hawai'i begins the progression of our warrior; the echo of the conch shell announces his arrival. He leaves a trail of glowing torches surrounding the lagoon as he makes his way to Black Rock. Upon reaching the summit, he offers his torch to the ocean below, casts his flower lei into the sea; and finally takes the breathtaking dive from Black Rock into the rolling surf below.

During the day, you will be dazzled with the incredible marine life that calls Ka’anapali Beach and Black Rock home. From endangered Hawaiian sea turtles to brilliantly colored tropical fish, this pacific oasis is just steps from your room at the beautiful Sheraton Maui Resort & Spa.
