“a beautiful gem of a beach...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2013

It is not a large beach, but this beach has all the things you look for in Hawaii--beautiful clear water, soft sand, and great views.

“Enjoyed the beach and area north of crowds”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2013

We stayed in a condo near Napili Bay and found it to be less crowded than the Ka'anapali area. We had a great turtle cove to snorkel in.

“This beach should be called Turtle Town!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2013

We went to Napili Beach three times during our stay in Maui, and every time we were treated by seeing sea turtles in the shallows. Overall we probably saw between 20 and 30 turtles! They're not afraid of people (probably because of the strict regulations that restrict touching and feeding them), so they'll come right up to you whether you're snorkeling or just wading in the shallows.

“Turtles and boogie boarding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We saw a bunch of turtles by the rocks and while snorkeling ( you can see them from the beach). The kid had a blast boogie boarding and body surfing. It felt safe for swimming. Wish we had found this beach earlier in our trip. A must visit!
