Napili Beach

The white sloping sands of Napili Bay Beach are often lined with beach blankets and umbrellas, providing tourists the ideal area for tanning and relaxation. It is also one of the top swimming destinations in Maui as the waters are often calm and the perfect temperature for diving right in.

As you look across the ocean, you may spot the area where the outer reefs protect the shore from the Pacific swells. The reefs take the power out of the waves, which are only gently lapping ripples by the time they reach the shore. 

The shallow waters of Napili Beach also provide optimal snorkeling. The clear, turquoise waters hide a variety of tropical fish and a large native sea turtle population. Perhaps the biggest danger here is bumping into other snorkelers when visiting during prime travel seasons.

Sunset views, whale watching, and amazing snorkeling sites ensure that everyone has an unforgettable experience at Napili Beach. It is worth pointing out that the area does not include lifeguards or public facilities However, a good selection of restaurants and shops are within walking distance. 

Along with the sandy shoreline, you may choose to stretch out on the soft, green lawn behind the sand. Beyond the lawn are paths leading to the various luxury resorts, which block the view of the street from the beach and creates a more secluded, natural feeling atmosphere.
