We heard and read about how this beach is great for snorkeling so we decided to check it out after visiting the Black Rock. We found that Kapalua had calmer waters and fewer people, which we loved! Kaanapali Beach is in front of the Sheraton and there are about five more resorts/condos in that area, resulting in many people. Kapalua was more relaxing. We didn't see sea turtles here like we did at Kaanapali Beach but we did see more fish here. If your children like Finding Nemo, this would be a great place to bring them because they'll see some Nemo friends (and Nemo) there.

We got a list of best places to snorkel from the dive shop (Snorkel Bob's) to snorkel. This is the best place on the island. The beach parking is filled up but there is more parking available at the golf coarse/club down the street. Loved being able to swim out a few feet and see coral and TONS of fish.

Beautiful in the early mornnig, but gets crowed by late morning. Good for snorkling and people watching. Also pretty at sunset.

Very calm beach good for snorkeling. You can rent paddle boards and get free towels / chairs if you are staying at the Kapalua Villas
