Napili is one of the most beautiful small beaches on Maui. A very nice place to stay or spend a few hours, although parking can be a bit tricky. Very picturesque!

You can do anything at this beach! From sun tanning, to snorkeling, to skim boarding, to paddle boarding. The opportunities are endless and it is beautiful.
