Gorgeous beach; perfect water and clear sand. Seahouse Restaurant at one end so you can leave your beach chairs and umbrella set up on the beach like we did and just walk down to eat lunch at the Seahouse.

The drive to the beach was nice, but most of the drives or areas near Maui beaches are nice due to the resorts nearby. Water was calm and it's not as crowded.

This is my favorite bay on all of Maui. Beautiful, family friendly, shade trees, great snorkeling and easy parking.

Love this bay and it is a hidden gem. Great snorkeling site for sea turtles and fish! My kids do snorkeling 4-5 times a day for 4 straight days and never got tied of it.

Great beach with soft sand and only a few rocks in the water. Once you get out it does get a bit steep quickly. We had our floaty toys and spent hours floating around in the water and reading on the beach. Perfect days were spent here!

Was a beautiful beach, but when the tide is coming in you no longer become a beach/sun bather you become a swimmer! Great for snorkeling though!

It is so clean and natural! Take a towel and find peace and quiet! The coast is so unspoiled. I didn't see turtles on our visit, but I'm told they are out there!

There is a little bay right in front of Napili Point Resort just south of Napili Beach. The BEST snorkeling site for turtles! We went snorkeling everyday, and every time we saw a minimum of 5 turtles. There are a variety of fish also, but you just can't beat those turtles...

This is where I would stay if I come back to Maui, love this beach and area. Beaches are clean, area has a few nice restaurants, a bit far from Lahaina but it is all drive-able not too much traffic and if you are in vacation you shouldn't be in a hurry anyway. I would definitely compare this to Kaanapali... More

Positive: Good for swimming, snorkeling and stand up paddling. Good place to see green turtles close to the rocks in the left side of the beach. Best breakfast in the island (The Gazebo). Cons: parking.
