Great beach for swimming!
Oct 2021
Though we stayed on Kaanapali Beach we were impressed with this bay and the sandy beach in Napili. Worth the drive and fight to find parking!

Hidden gem for snorkeling, great beach, calm water, plenty of fish, turtles (Merlin sunning himself) and corals.

The Perfect Spot...for everything
Sep 2021
Napili Beach is the perfect spot to lay on the soft Hawaiian sand, it is perfect to swim in the ocean, it's even better to snorkel or paddle-board, and there are TURTLES!! Even when the tide is a little high, it isn't scary or intimidating...its walking distance to The Gazebo restaurant also.

WE LOVE THIS PLACE
Sep 2021
As a part time resident of Maui, we are so so lucky. We live on Kapalua Bay but just as often come to Napili Bay to relax and enjoy some snorkeling. It's a close call between the too so I won't select a winner. Just go to both!

Always a fun place to go!
Aug 2021
If you like riding the wave back and forth, this is a great beach! Kids seem to love it! It’s somewhat small and crescent shaped, and steeper then a lot of the beaches, but that’s what makes it fun riding the waves. If it’s anywhere near high tide, beware, the waves will come all the way to the top of the beach and wash your belongings away!

No beach. Very crowded
Aug 2021 • Couples
So crowded. You have squeeze in between other groups to sit. There is very little beach. The tide starts coming up quick and soaks your stuff. Only enough beach for one family before the water hits. Good parking though. $10 per day

Great beach
Jul 2021
The sand here just seems different and get there before sunset.
Very crowded though so be prepared. Decent snorkeling spot with lite surf.

Sandy, clear water!
Jul 2021
We loved this sandy beach in a secluded cove just off the Pacific Ocean. It was busy, but there is a restaurant and restrooms, and it is close to The Gazebo for breakfast.

Small and Beautiful
Jun 2021
This beach is perfect for relaxing and taking in the beautiful ocean. It does get extremely crowded and because of its small size, fills up very quickly. Get there early to get a good spot and if you want shade.

Beautiful beach
Jun 2021 • Family
We ate dinner at the sea house and it overlooks this beach. Tons of families playing in the water. The waves weren’t bad at all and a great place for families with small kids.
