In ancient Hawaiian legend this large, black mass of lava was where the souls of the dead leaped into the arms of the gods named Pu'u Keka'a.

Now it is a heaven for snorkelers and scuba divers to explore the beauty of the ocean including honu (green sea turtles). The black rock splits Ka'anapali Beach right near the Sheraton and Ka'anapali Beach Hotel. Sometimes strong currents make it to this area so be careful. Take Highway 30 toward Ka'anapali and turn left onto Ka'anapali Parkway at mile marker 24. Beach access is between the two hotels.
