“mellow swimming beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

Napili is a small beach, sometimes windy, steep incline of sand to the water. Good swimming area, very little surf but steep dropoff so you are in deep swimming water quickly. Good sunny location to lay on the beach and read. beautiful tidepools to explore.

“Napili Bay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 March 2012

While the snorkeling wasn't all that great, the water was lovely. Golden sand beach with a sandy entry into the water. The waves are not overwhelming because of the position of the bay. Nice to watch the sunset at the water's edge.

Palm trees and the sand is amazing. Calm sea and good for snorkeling.

“Beautiful, idyllic beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

Always a pleasure to sit and enjoy the view at Napili Beach. Not a good beach for walking along due to it's steep nature, and not good for small children due to the wave action and frequent undertow.
