Napili Bay

Palm Trees Napili Bay mauiNapili Bay is a beautiful sandy beach between Ka'anapali and Kapalua Bay. The crescent shaped bay is protected by coral reefs about 100 feet out making the water calm most of the time. Great beach for just about anything, swimming, snorkeling, sun bathing, you name it. The tidal pools to the south is a good place to find turtles as close as ten feet from shore. This bay is a good spot for late risers, as the beach doesn't get as crowded as Kapalua and Ka'anapali, with parking along the streets.
