We were pretty disappointed with the clarity of the water here. We came here twice and each time the water was murky and cloudy. It's difficult to find a place to park and the beach is way over packed. If we could have picked one...More

This is a great hidden gem. While it does not have a sand beach, it is quite beautiful and best of all, quiet and secluded. Snorkeling in this area is very nice. Wonderful area to vacation in.

We usually stay at this beach when we come to stay in Maui. The beach is so peaceful and great to walk and swim in. Great for all ages, and the turtles are always around the rocks to see.

The resorts. The sand. The snorkeling. The quiet. The gentle surf. The Turtles. These are all of the reasons that I love Napili Beach and I will always stay there when on Maui.

We spent the day at Kapalua and only walked over to the Sea Horse Restaurant at the Napali Kai Resort for brunch. The view of the sandy beach and calm blue waters is post card spectacular.

If you want a single destination with all the restaurants and activity... then choose Kaanapali... BUT...if you want a quieter low key spot and are okay driving at times to eat... this is a great spot. Quieter beach... with only low rise (two story) condo...More

This is the perfect setting for a relaxing day. Find a spot and whale watch, snorkel, and take a dip in the beautiful, cool water.

My son and I love to swim. Most of the Kaanapali beach areas aren't great but the Napili is awesome.

While the visibility is not as spectacular as Kapalua Bay, it is still a very great snorkeling place. It's also nice for relaxing and hanging out on the beach. The only things that would make it better would be a huge parking lot (or having...More
