Good beaches

There are some nice places in Napili, including a surfing beach and some sandy swimming beaches. If you search some of the pullouts, you can find a few more remote beaches, too.

A beautiful beach off the beaten track. And you can get breakfast or lunch at The Gazebo restaurant nearby!

While the sand is not as fine as in Wailea, it's still on par with the best beaches in Mexico. The angle is a little steep, so if you go swim with young children, be a little bit more careful than usual. Now the crazy part: there is a black lava rocks formation that is a perfect place sea turtles... More

Napili Beach is hard to get to but worth the effort. It is a great little beach that is perfect for spending an afternoon playing in the ocean, body surfing and enjoying the beauty that Maui offers.

It's a very sweet beach, and snorkeling is great on the left side (from the beach facing the ocean). We saw several sea turtles there. We had to park on a side street, but that wasn't very difficult.

Napili beach is beautiful. We were able to watch whales from the beach. There is a reef only a little way out that has turtles around it. You can see the turtles from the walking trail or by snorkeling. There are lots of snorkelers, paddle boarding and swimming.

What I like about this beach is that you can stay close in to snorkle and view the many species of tropical fish. There is a serious outcropping of rocks beneath the Sea House restaurant that attracts many species of fish--all within a few meters of shore. The Maui Outlet Store in Lahaina sells a fish identification booklet for $6.95... More

What beach in Maui isn't beautiful? You might have to walk a couple of blocks from where you parked your car...but nonetheless, it's definitely worth the walk as it's a beaitful beach. It's certainly busier than some of the others as this beach backs onto a number of vacation properties but it wasn't so busy that you couldn't enjoy it.... More

Napili Beach - amazing snorkeling for beginners and advanced swimmers. The sand is perfect and the cove is great to stay away from most of the big waves. This trip, I was able to swim with 3 turtles. Wow!! Sea House restaurant is delicious. Try the fish tacos.

The beaches in Maui are gorgeous but many have sharp droop offs and rip tides. Napili is we'll known to be very pretty but there are rip tides there so beware and be careful.
