Great beach. The access was a little confusing, but Iso happy we went here! It was not busy so we used seats that were available. We went in the water and unexpected to us the waves were incredible and were tossed around. It was the most fun ever!!! Could not stop laughing and filled out suits with all the sand!!!! The best unexpected find and fun!

One of the prettiest beaches in Maui. Well protected cove and the snorkeling is great. The beach sand is soft and lots of it. See turtles almost every time we go. There are restrooms and outside showers available. Parking is limited there but there are a couple of pay parking lots on the main road or get there early and park on the main road. That's what we usually do. Great place for families too.

We spent an afternoon at Napili beach during our recent trip to Maui.

The beach is easy to walk and we all had a fun time enjoying the waves.

Beautiful beach with giant waves. The beach is at a slope but it’s a good size beach! The sand is really soft with not many shells.

Friendly people, travelers and locals alike. Soft sandy beach that is sloped made it a bit difficult for some of our seniors to navigate. But with some assistance they fared well. We snorkeled and saw a great many varieties of fish. Strong outgoing current, so fins are a must. And please fellow seniors, make sure you are heart healthy. We stayed at a small resort (Napili Sunset) which allowed for beautiful sunsets and good access to everything Hawaiian. It’s a different vibe then other Resort areas, more relaxed—less foo-foo!

Awesome beach, on the small to medium size of beaches. It can get crowded quickly and parking becomes difficult later in the morning/day, so arrive early if you want a smooth experience.

and there is snorkeling to boot. This beach was located close to our vrbo so we visited often. Lovely, always clean, and shade available. Our grandkids ages 5, 7, 8, and 10 loved sliding down the sand into the waves or riding the waves back to where we were seated. Awesome!!

Be sure to watch out for rocks, both of my kids got hurt (bruised / cuts) from rocks, but still amazing experience.
