Beautiful hotels and location. One of my favorite places to go. Small town with great locations to stay. It was a bit rainy when we were there but still amazing area to be.

Napili Beach is one of our favorite destinations. It's a little more quiet. The wave action is nice for body surfing with DT Fleming Beach near by and lot's of turtles. Of course, we love everything about Maui.

This is a public beach with access at Napili Sunset Resort. It was never crowded and the perfect place to lie in the sun, body surf, and snorkel. You can see both Molokai and Lanai from this beach. The sunsets were absolutely breathtaking.

Very clean and not so big. The sandy beach is incredible. Not so good for snorkelling. Huge waves were crashing on the beach. Swimming was a little challenging. The parking could be tough to find. Park on the street and walk to it.

By accident, we ended up stopping for a picnic lunch at Napili Beach. We had front row seats to several very large green turtles swimming around the rocks. Super nice beach.

Oh Napili Bay, what happened? This was one of all our favorite beaches in Maui. Upon driving down the road to it, we were shocked to see the amount of cars parked for blocks on each side of the road. We never imagined that all...More
