Whenever in Maui we stay at either Napili Shores or Napili Point resorts, and we love to snorkel at this beach. It's easy access from those resorts, and others stretching around the beach north to Napili Kai, mean it's usually quite busy on days when...More

Always try and make a stop here when on the island. We love how the beach is small in comparison to others and the color of the water is incredible. Go early and score one of the few parking spots close to the beach entry.

apparently the reef has protected this beach from the erosion that Kaanapali has suffered. Napili is a special, lovely beach. One of our favorites. Parking is an issue. We did not see public parking here.

This beach was perfect for trying SUP for the first time. We rented boards from 808 Boards (a 5 min walk away) and the water so clear and calm.
