“Beautiful little beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

Napili beach is a beautiful, smaller, golden sand beach. I saw a lot of people snorkeling here. Great for swimming. My kids and I had a great time here!

“Paradise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

When I dream of tropical paradise this is the beach. Fun. Family friendly. Friendly people. Scenic. Small. Well protected from the trade winds. During my stay it was never too crowded, especially in the morning and evening. No life guards. Watch the surf. Larger swells can break hard on the unsuspecting. Usually there is little or no break at all, but sets of large swells come in regularly which many anticipate with their boards and bodies. Good snorkeling.

“Great alround Beach”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 June 2014

We stayed in a condo looking over this beach for a week. It is perfectly placed between two great restaurants. The beach drops away quite quick so you don't have to walk out a long way inching into the water.
It is safe however and great for paddle boarding , It is nicely sheltered.
There are no Life Guards but good water safety is all you need .
It was never over populated while we were there in June.
Water sport hiring options are close by and we hired a paddle board for the 24 hrs which meant we got the best of the mornings and evening.
Some other places only do a 12hr rental.

“Great beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

A little hard to find, but we snorkeled here because Boss Frog's said that a certain seaweed grows here that turtles eat. We swam with a turtle.
