“My favorite Maui beach”
Review of Napili Beach

Napili has always been my favorite beach. The snorkeling is some of the best on the island and the turtles are so close at times that you needn't snorkel to see them. Some days the water is completely calm like a lake and others there are really fun waves. There are palm tress all along the beach so if you would like to sit in shade it is available. I like to go early because it can get a bit crowded around noon time.

Are you travelling to Maui with kids and are not looking for awsome waves to surfing, then Napili Beach is your choice.
We loved the beach and so did our daughter.

Visited many on our June 2014 trip to Maui. THIS is the beach that the kids (and parents) were happiest spending our days at. Picture-perfect, with a fun (yet gentle enough) surf. Cheap breakfast/lunch at The Gazebo at one end, awesome food at Sea House at the other. Tip: Use the adjacent Kapalua Beach parking lot as a "base" for visiting both beaches throughout the day.

Very nice location, ok snorkeling but around the corner to the left is Honuloa bay where you stand a good chance to see sea turtles. You need to be a strong swimmer and go when the sea is calm. Snorkel and fins required. A short walk down the beach to the right is "Sea House". Great for pupus, drinks or lunch. Take an umbrella if you don't love the sun as there is little. shade. Parking is scarce so go early. Park along the road and walk in.

We love Napili Bay, best beach on the West side of Maui. Turtles all day long, good snorkeling unless there's big surf.
