The best place to sit back and take in the scenery in Kaanapali beach is the center section at the front part of Whalers village (also called “dig-me-beach”). The Whaler village is a first-class shopping mall that hosts a wide variety of renowned restaurants and shops and a well-known whaling museum and a wide variety of Hawaiian amusements. The northern cliff known as Puu Kekaa or Black Rock offers the most popular allure to the Kaanapali beach which is a diving event.
