“Great beach”
Reviewed March 22, 2012

Good beach to snorkel and hang out. It is well protected from the wind and waves so a good place to go with kids.

“Good beach; excellent snorkelling”
Reviewed March 21, 2012

A unique combination of an excellent sand beach for sunning and swimming, combined with good coral reefs for snorkelling...lots of fish, also sea turtles.

“Some of the best snorkelling of our trip!”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

We found Kapalua to be wonderful snorkelling for all levels. Kids can go right off the beach - we saw an octopus, puffer fish and moray eel all within 20 feet of the beach - but you can head further out and see turtles and octopus on the reefs deeper down. If anything it's almost difficult to swim without touching coral, you're that close - enter and exit on the left side but the best snorkelling we found was middle / right. Water is clear and warm, making it great for beginners. Parking is free and convenient (go early to get a spot or be prepared to wait). Bathrooms are right off the parking lot and showers etc. make this a great family beach as the sand is great, it's a gentle slope and there are lots of spots for little ones to play. Not so good for boogie boarding as the coral is so close to the shore, but saw lots of kids enjoying the waves. Stunning panorama and a great out of the way spot - worth the drive out.
