Stayed at Outrigger Napili Shores, right on the beach. Best of the best on Maui. Relatively calm, it's awesome for snorkling or just playing in the water. Be prepared to share your area with several friendly Hono turtles that are about as interested in you as you are in them. Stunning aquamarine waters, it's more what you would expect of... More

On some days, when there is a big swell rolling in, this beach looks like more fun than a Californian theme park. The kids (young and old) just love riding the waves that just seem to swell up from nowhere midway along the beach. For a more laid back swim, try the northern end of the beach which is like...

If you want to stay in a small area and just swim, relax, eat and drink while still being able to stumble back to your room. This is the place. Napili is a great little spot to just hide away.

My wife and I stayed at amazing Napili Kai Beach Resort for the second time this summer and we found this beach as the best on Maui. See my attached photos and you will understand! Regards Svein-Magne Tunli from Bergen, Norway.

This beach has something for everyone! It is a great place for families to spend a day just splashing around, you can snorkel, kite surf, paddle board, you name it. There is parking, but it can be limited on busy days.

Saw more turtles here (at the shore) than anywhere else. That even includes a boat trip to turtle town! Good for play in the surf or sitting on the beach. A little crowded but the turtles made it worth it

Napili Beach has a steep sand entry that's great for boogie boards. My kids loved it here and we went on two consecutive days. Not great for snorkeling, but it's a beautiful view.
