“Fabulous beach”
Reviewed July 20, 2014

I stayed at a condo right on the beach, where I've stayed many times before. It is the perfect location! The beach was not too crowded, even though it was June and you cannot beat the snorkeling here. You can see turtles and wide variety of fish. Waves are gentle and it is a great place to play in the water.

“Not special”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Okay, but nothing to drive a distance for. Black Rocks a few miles south was much better snorkeling and has the 20 foot jump.

“One of the best beaches in Maui - and I checked out a lot of beaches!”
Reviewed July 18, 2014

We spent 13 days on Maui, and spent the majority of our time checking out the beaches. Napili was definitely one of our favorites! It wasn't too crowded, and the snorkeling was great! Saw numerous turtles, even some up close to the beach so those people who were not snorkeling also saw them. Saw lots of colorful fish as well. You will have to do a little walking on a trail/rocks to get to the actual beach since we were not lodging there, but we were able to get good parking since we arrived early in the day. I recommend wearing shoes to get to the actual beach. Extra bonus for us, a couple was getting married on the rocks/beach when we first arrived. There were numerous vacation rentals in the area and I would consider actually staying here if I am fortunate to come back to Maui!

“Stunning beach”
Reviewed July 16, 2014

Limited parking since it's a busy beach but people park all down the road sides. Lots of shady areas and gorgeous crystal clear water. You can snorkel here and see turtles! If you walk up to the cliff edges you will get great views and there are walking trails to see the coastline.
