Nice public beach, very crowded
Mar 2021
good snorkeling; you are literally in the back yard of a bunch of apartments and when the tide comes in the water practically comes up to their back yards. Hard to find parking here.

Nice low key beach with soft sand and nice views.
Mar 2021
Perfect low key place to relax, boogie board, and watch intermediate surfers. We were here when the winds were high so there were unusually big waves rolling in which made it almost too hard to boogie board. The surfers were having a great time. The beach had nice, soft sand with plenty of room to spread out. Normally there's good snorkeling in the bay not far from shore. Low key, quiet beach. Free parking on Napili Pl. Fun tide pools at the south end of the beach.

The best beach for all ages
Feb 2021 • Friends
We had a blast at Napili. There is public parking on the south end( not a lot) and a water fountain to wash feet. We spent a lovely afternoon there playing in the waves. People social distanced on the beach and wore masks on the trail to the beach. Normally we would have snorkeled, but there was a high surf warning so we stayed right on shore.

great snorkeling spot
Jan 2021
great beach to snorkel on. We went in January, the water was warm. The beach has limited lounging areas and you are sitting on a little bit of an incline. A few days the waves were big, I'm a great swimmer so I loved it, they are shore breaking waves.

We've enjoyed Napili Beach for many years as well as visiting it multiple times during each stay on Maui. We have actually only stayed adjacent to Napili Beach once but it is an easy drive from where we generally choose to stay. It is a nice cove with plenty of shallow areas as well more challenging deeper waters. There are rocks on the south side that you can get washed up against so be careful here. We have also seen plenty of sea turtles here including some that come along some of the rocks when the water is only one foot in depth. Parking can be tough as is true of many of the beaches. We usually get around the parking issue by getting to the beach before 9am. The temperature is decent enough by this time. We will enjoy snorkeling and relaxing before the crowds show up and head off by 12:30pm having enjoyed nearly 3-4 hours at Napili Beach. If you go enjoy the colorful fish!

A nice little cove to hang out. Great sand and water is as always awesome. It was a walk for us to get there.

The beach that has it all!
Dec 2020
Sunbathing, showers, boogie-boarding, snorkeling, swimming. I almost always see a turtle while snorkeling here. It's a steep beach in the winter so not the best for simply walking. Sea House offers a great happy hour starting at 2:30 right on the beach.

Beautiful, perfect snorkeling spot!
Dec 2020
This beach has bathrooms and a small parking lot. The beach entry could be difficult for anyone with mobility issues as there are multiple steps involved. The beach itself is gorgeous. The snorkeling is ideal (fish and turtles) there are numerous coral reefs where marine life abounds. It is an ideal, unbelievable spot. If you can make it there I highly recommend it.

Parking in a lot provides easy access to the beach. Easy in and out of the water- sandy bottom to start, nice place to be and the snorkeling was very good! Good fish and a shower!

The Napili Kai staff, the bay and the Sea House restaurant are amazing. It is the best place to unwind and ground yourself
