A great family beach to visit while on Maui just a little north of Ka'anapali. While snorkeling you may see turtles as well as tons of fish. We really enjoyed this beach!

We loved Napili and went back multiple times. Great snorkeling, limited waves, lots of sand, not a lot of people. It was a great spot.

This is a really nice small beach. It's really a cove that's protected. Calm water, some shade. Two restaurants close by to grab lunch. Very popular.

As rookie snorkelers we were recommended Napili Beach. A perfect spot. Took awesome GoPro vids. Safe and calm waters. Parking is tight be prepared to walk in. No facilities.

It's just a beautiful beach, easy to access. It is really lovely. Our condo was about two miles from this beach, so I ran there a couple of times. It was very pretty in the morning. It gets crowded later in the day.
