I think I'd most recommend this beach as the one you want your hotel to be right by. We biked down here, and stopped at 5 beaches along the South Maui stretch, and this one had the most diverse offerings. It wasn't overcrowded at all when we were there, but it is well maintained. There is soft sand, and some rocky reef. We snorkeled and saw sea turtles, and a few fish. Also a nice beach just to relax on or swim around in. Good spot to have lunch as well.

Do you like beaches? If you answered yes, you'll probably like this one.

Saw turtles. Some of my kids loved it but some did come out of water with weird bites on their body. Not sure what was going on that day.

Kapalua Beach will always have a special place in my heart. Our oldest daughter was married here in May 2003. It is kind of hard to find, so you may drive past. It is park, so it has off street parking with bathrooms. This is a very nice beach to take your family. There are a lot of shade trees or soft sandy beach, too. A reef offers protection for snorkeling. You may see sea turtles sleeping on the rocks. NOTE: HI State Law protects the turtles, so you can take their pictures, but try not disturb them. If you stay until sunset, you may see a wedding there.

If you get there early you can park close and it's free. Go to the right side of the beach to snorkel. Lots of corral an we saw a beautiful sea turtle in fairly shallow water. The beach is in a cove and current was calm. Went back around sunset and saw a wedding being performed right on the beach as well as several wedding pictures being taken there also. That is how nice this beach is. They also had showers on the way to the parking lot. One of the top beaches that I visited on my vacation

We didn’t even have to leave the beach to see two sea turtles. Lots of activity in the water at Kapalua Bay! My husband and I spent hours there and loved it! Might be a good idea to take an umbrella if you plan on spending lots of time at the beach. There isn’t much shade right on the beach but lots under the trees on the grass. Showers and washrooms too…
