Good beach to see the sunset

Soft sand, great views of the sunset to the west, can get pretty busy so get there early to secure a spot. We didn't swim or snorkel here

Beautiful, peaceful and packed with sea-life! The turtles were the highlight for me and the kids. Get there early for parking, gear can be rented 1/2 block away from the beach so park first and walk.

Beautiful coral to be found there and beautiful fish. This beach seems to be a favourite among the locals but it wasn't overcrowded and there's plenty of beach and ocean to share with everyone, tourist and locals alike.

The sand was soft on the feet. Water was amazing to swim in and pretty calm for the most part. Snorkelling was the best I have every seen, so many different colours of fish and coral and very safe. Sunsets are beautiful and relaxing.

Happy hour at The Sea House on Napili Bay was great. The Slack Key Concert is on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Try to see it!

We spotted this beach during happy hour at Merrimens that overlooks Napili Beach. This is a beautiful area. Napili Bay is one of the top beaches on Maui. The clear water makes for an excellent place to snorkel, see lots of fish and sometimes see turtles. This is a great beach that has a lot to offer. Napili Bay is... More

The beach is fun with good snorkeling, but parking if very limited. I had to park on the street where there was not good sidewalk accessibility.
