Napili Beach is a wonderful place to take a leisurely swim or snorkel in the morning. The water is usually very calm and clear and on a day like today, you didn't even need a snorkel to see plenty of cool schools of fish!

Nice protected beach for snorkeling. Really nice bathroom and shower facilities for all. Very convenient parking (though it probably fills up quickly).
