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.

The beach was gorgeous and well situated in a cove which was perfect for swimming and snorkeling. I think we were snorkeling for only a few minutes when a turtle swam right under our feet. Really cool.

We have been up and down West Maui looking for a great body and boogie board beach. The swells the last two days created 6-8 ft waves on the beach today. Sounds very dangerous but they break fairly gently on to the steep shore. You get a great ride whether body surfing or using a boogie board. Maui Revealed says... More

It has a beautiful setting, a good restaurant, very good snorkeling, paddle boarding, and a variety of places to stay, from a large resort to small home friendly condominiums.

This is where we stayed...but we spent most days at other beaches as Napili has gotten so crowded. Nice snorkeling and all amenities available.

Somewhat disappointed. the view was great but can't believe how much trash was on the beach.. The water was great and lots of waves to play in and saw many sea turtles Maybe it was just some ignorant folks prior who forgot to pick up their garbage although their was lots...too bad it ruined it for many that day
