“Nice Beach But Lots Of Rocks Underfoot”
Review of Napili Beach

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 reviews while I only thought it to be average. It's not very wide nor long. In the water, the sand drops off quickly and I didn't feel this was a very good family beach as a result. We also encountered lots of rocks (some fairly sharp and large) submerged and right where you continually step or bump into them.

There are so many beaches in this area of Maui I would recommend doing some recon to locate a better beach.

This beach has great snorkeling and it's free. Turtles, brown spotted eels and lots of tropical fish.

This is a peaceful cove, great for swimming and snorkeling. Smaller beach so it can seem more crowded than a big beach. Parking is a challenge but if you come early or get lucky enough to find a spot, it's good. Some turtles can be found here. Please be mindful to stay a good distance from them so not to interfere with their feeding and then come onto the beach for much needed rest.

The beach was a hidden gem and the snorkling was average but we di see many turtles. I would reccommend this for a day trip.
