Visit Black Rock Beach for Sun, Sand, and Adventure

Puunoa Beach Estates is a great place to stay if you have kids – if you have young children, Baby Beach is an excellent beach choice, due to the mild waves and open beach. But, if you’re looking for a bit more adventure, head to Black Rock Beach. Here, you can snorkel, swim, soak up the sun, and even cliff-dive!

Black Rock Beach: A Place for Adventure

Black Rock Beach is located at the north end of Kaanapali Beach. It was formed from one of the last-gap lava flows on this side of Maui. Today, it is used by locals and visitors alike as a place for adventure. It is known as a fantastic snorkeling location, and also as a cliff-diving spot.

– Snorkeling

The water around Black Rock is perfect for snorkeling. Starting at 8 feet deep, it gradually becomes deeper, reaching beyond 25 feet once you swim around the point. The visibility is great, and you’ll be able to see many different types of fish and ocean life, such as perch, chub, trigger fish, surgeon fish, butterfly fish, damsel fish, tang, turtles, invertebrates, crustaceans, and more. As always when entering the ocean, be aware of currents – it can get strong in this area.

– Cliff-Diving

Cliff-diving is a favorite pastime of many visitors to Black Rock Beach. The rock makes a perfect jumping-off point that will keep beachgoers busy all day. As always, be careful when cliff-diving. You need to be aware of any rocks below to avoid danger.

Black Rock Beach: A Place Filled with Mystery

In Hawaiian, Black Rock is “Pu’u Keka’a.” It was believed this was the place where Hawaiian’s spirits jumped off and joined their ancestors. Today, there is a cliff-diving ceremony that takes place nightly to remember the legend. Every night on the rock, a torch is lit, signaling the beginning of the ceremony. A young cliff diver climbs to the top of the rock, throws a torch and a flower lei into the sea, and takes a breathtaking dive into the water below. It’s a beautiful sight to witness, and is well-worth staying to watch.

Visitors Love Black Rock Beach

Reviewers on TripAdvisor love the beach. From comments such as “great beach for snorkeling,” “great cliff-jumping for the family,” and “give it a try, you won’t regret it,” you can be sure it’s a great place to visit during your stay at Puunoa Beach Estates. If you have any questions about the beach, such as where to rent snorkel gear, or the best times to visit, don’t hesitate to ask our guest services. We are happy to help you have the best vacation!

Visit the Wo Hing Museum for a Glimpse in the Past

There are many great activities you can enjoy during your stay at Puunoa Beach Estates: Great restaurants, parasailing, and a beach that is perfect for playing with your kids, as well as whale watching. Another fun thing to do with the entire family is to get a glimpse into the past at the Wo Hing Museum – only a short distance from your accommodations.

About the Wo Hing Museum

Hawaii has strong Chinese traditions in its past. The earliest Chinese to arrive came by whaling or trading ships. These men built irrigations systems and tunnels through the mountains. They also worked in the many sugar mills and sugar plantations in Maui. There were many Chinese immigrants living in Maui, so in 1912, a social and meeting hall was built by the Wo Hing Society. The attractive building was constructed right on Front Street, and still stands to this day. It has been maintained by the Lahaina Restoration Foundation since 1983, when the foundation realized the importance of this valuable historical structure. It has since been turned into a museum!

Museum is a “Gem of a Museum”

Many visitors to the Wo Hing Museum say that it is well worth the visit. One reviewer says they “visit every time we come to Maui,” because “something always has been added” (read additional reviews of the museum here). When you visit the museum, you’ll be able to tour the house, as well as a cookhouse (where you can see cooking artifacts), and short films by Thomas Edison.

Information about Visiting

The museum is located at 858 Front Street, Lahaina, a less-than 10-minute walk from your accommodations at Puunoa Beach Estates. The museum is open daily from 10:00am to 4:00pm. Admission ranges from $5-$7, and children under the age of 12 are free. And, when you purchase admission to the Wo Hing Museum, you also get access to the Baldwin House – another historical site in Lahaina (upgrade your ticket to a passport, and you get access to four museums in the area). Learn more about visiting the museum here. Also, the Annual Chinese Kite Festival is coming up soon in April – learn more about this fun event!

Get a Glimpse into Maui’s Past

When you visit historic sites such as the Wo Hing Museum in Lahaina, you get insight into Maui’s past. This is a valuable part of traveling, and makes the rest of your vacation that much more meaningful. Book your stay at Puunoa Beach Estates today, and get started on planning the rest of your vacation from there!

Review of 3 Bedroom Condo 104 “perfect for us”

“Our first trip to Hawaii could not have been better! Puunoa Beach Estates #104 was perfect for us. All of the amenities you could need in a great location! Easy walk to Front Street and all it has to offer. Shopping near by for groceries. The location on Baby Beach is perfect for snorkeling and shallow enough for the little ones with no big waves. The property is beautiful and very well taken care of. A quiet location for just relaxing and reading a book. The pool area is very clean and also offers 2 gas grills and outdoor dining. I would not hesitate to book at Puunoa for our next trip. Can’t wait to go back. ”

Puunoa Beach Estates: Best Restaurants on Maui

Vacation is a time to relax, and enjoy things you wouldn’t normally get to enjoy. Taking time to indulge in a little luxury while on vacation is a good thing for your body and soul. It reduces stress, and helps you prepare for going back to work and normal life. One of our favorite things about vacation is eating out: There’s nothing better than trying new foods, and not having to cook any of them. Puunoa Beach is surrounded by a wide variety of great restaurants. Here are a few of our favorites (all referenced from real ratings on TripAdvisor and Yelp).

Best Date Night Option: Lahaina Grill

Lahaina Grill is listed as the number one best restaurants on Maui on TripAdvisor. And, for good reason. It was listed as one of the Top 100 Places to Eat in the U.S. 2016 on Yelp, Top 100 Restaurants for Foodies in America for 2016, Best Maui Restaurant 24 years in a row, and is one of the Top 25 Restaurants in the U.S. for the past 3 years. You really can’t get better references than that. Lahaina Grill was founded in 1990, and has been a favorite spot since then.

Foods to Try: There are many wonderful dishes at Lahaina Grill, but a few favorites are the Wagyu Beef Raviolo (with black truffle, Portobello, braised apple, porcini, and morel mushroom-brandy cream sauce), and Tequila Shrimp with Firecracker Rice are fan favorites.

Prices: Lahaina Grill is a pricier option, but it is worth every penny. Appetizers range start at $22, entrees begin at $33.

Getting There: Lahaina Grill is a 3-minute drive from your accommodations at Puunoa Beach Estates, and less than a 15-minute walk!

Best Brunch Option: 808 Grindz Café

The 808 Grindz Café is open for breakfast, brunch, and lunch (until 2pm). A local favorite, they are famous for their “Onolicious Pancakes,” which are topped with homemade sweet cream sauce. It is listed in the top 10 best restaurants on Maui on Yelp. Reviewers say they wish they could eat there for every meal!

Foods to Try: We’ve already mentioned the sweet cream sauce, but there are other delicious options you need to try as well. A tasty lunch option is the shredded pork Loco Moco with fried rice, and the Kalua pork.

Prices: The 808 Grindz Café is a great option for people with big families, or those looking for less expensive options. Prices range from $8.08, and the helpings are large.

Getting There: Grindz is only a 4-minute drive from Puunoa Beach Estates, and it takes less than 15 to walk!

Best Family Dining: Cool Cat Café

If you’re looking for a good dinner place that is family-friendly, look no further than the Cool Cat Café. Reviewers say they have the best burgers on Maui, and when you add a shake, you can’t get much better than that. This café has a great old-school vibe with its chrome and red accents, and black and white checkered floor.

Foods to Try: The burgers are hands-down the best option, but there are other delicious things to try as well. They have mean baby back ribs, and their adult milkshakes are famous.

Getting There: Cool Cat Café is located very close to your accommodations at Puunoa Beach Estates. Drive in about 5-minutes, or walk in less than 20.

The Best Restaurants on Maui

If you have any questions about these restuarants, or you’d like other recommendations, don’t hesitate to ask at guest services. Because Puunoa Beach Estates is located so close to Front Street (where everything happens in Maui!), there are countless dining options.
