This was a GREAT beach. Beautiful little bay. My only complaint was that they did not have any public restrooms. We saw many turles. Nice place to snorkel but Kapalua had way more fish. Family friendly. Waves weren't huge. Close to restaurant for lunch- Gazebo. Didn't have to pay for parking so that was a plus.

Get there early for parking & just follow the path to the beach, calm waters & turtles. Most of the beach is good for the kids.

Located just above Ka'anapali and Kahana is Napili Beach. There are some nice restaurants and hotels there. The beach can be rocky but nice for snorkeling

We went snorkeling and swimming, ended up seeing more than one turtle! The sand was lovely, and the view was unbeatable. Lots of fish and coral to see for snorkeling, there werent alot of waves, as a lot of the larger ones were breaking much farther out.

This place is not to be missed. It's not a long beach but it's well protected and absolutely stunning. also, the Gazebo restaurant is at the southeast end of the beach....REAL good!

Awesome beach, surrounded by condos. The bay is actually a cove, so the beach is somewhat protected from big surf

Napili Beach is simply one of my favorite beaches on Maui. It has a nice sandy crescent shape with pretty good snorkeling. Parking can be tough on busy days and the waves can get big in the winter. Sunsets here are epic.

I think this beach is great for families, but if you want any privacy this is not the place. People everywhere and can't lay a towel down on the beach without hitting another person. Turtles can be seen around the black rocks to the left of the beach from the shore! Very cool! We were here from 9:30-12 and it... More

My favorite Maui beach in terms of sheer beauty, and also favorite for swimming and boogie boarding. The north end is very calm for swimming and south end has great little boogie boarding waves that carry you right up onto the sandy beach. Just go online and check the tide tables for Napili Beach before going, so you can make... More
