Lovely spot, but parking can be a problem and it definitely is a downward slope that could be troublesome for anyone having balance or walking issues.

Extremely hard to get here - the pathway is behind the turtle mailbox and a bit bumpy but it’s worth - once you get in the water there are tons of turtles and fish

This is a great snorkeling spot because there are little to no waves. We saw turtles and fish all over the place. The downside is parking and the crowds. Get there before 11 AM and you should be fine.

After our snorkeling tour to Molokini crater was cancelled due to mechanical issues the hotel suggested we visit Napili Beach. We were really happy with all the fish and the relatively calm water. There were sea turtles but we didn’t see any. It’s a great...More

Hit this smaller crescent shaped beach here at Napili. Kind of tucked away off main road a bit. Sand is light brown and fine grained with abundant broken, white sea shells. Ocean is a collage of blues. Lite blue, blue, deepest blue. Waves roll into...More

An open and wide bay that is peaceful and fun to take the family or a couple for the day in the sun and water.

This arcing sandy bay is a delightful place to enjoy the ocean. But it's popularity makes it crowded during the day. At night it is one of the more romantic spots on Maui with the lights curving off into the distance when viewed from places...More

Napili Beach is one of the best beaches I've spent time on in all my travels. The calm, refreshing water is clear as crystal. On low tide you can see the reef, which is good for snorkeling. If you're lucky you'll see a few green...More

I spent an afternoon at Napili Beach and enjoyed the vibe and water. Parking is always an issue at Napili so figure on hunting around for a place to park plus a decent length walk to get to the beach itself. This beach gets rave...More
