“wonderful site, waves were a surprise!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

We hit this spot at incoming high tide, and loved the surf. We got in the water and found the surf a little harder to manage, say than KA'anapali beach. However it was super, and if not at high tide, would reccommend it. We also lost our items to shore surf, and recoverd some later,.. with much sand. If you hit a rouge wave, it can be a stealer!

“In Love with Napili”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We keep coming back to Napili. It can get a bit crowded but still not wall to wall people. Great water and lots to see when snorkeling. Our first year here- or in Hawaii for that matter my goal was to see 1 sea turtle while snorkeling. Little did I know that once you find the right spots you see many, everyday. So much to love here, looking forward to going back over and over again.

“Great beach for family”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

This beach as everything....nice waves coming In that you can play in and even snorkeling. We got here about 230 which was a great time for us...found a parking spot since many were leaving by that time.
if you're looking for big waves go to Makena beach. If you're looking for nice waves for the family to play in..this is the place

“Nice place to snorkel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

Find this out of the way beach to snorkel. If you're not staying in Napili, its worth the drive, not far from Kaanapali to the north. Nearbye restrooms and showers.
