Create an itinerary including Napili Beach
Known as the "hidden gem" of Maui, Napili Beach offers swimming, snorkeling, and a possibility of encountering sea turtles. It is a rare beach on the island where there are no sharp coral reefs on the shoreline. The ocean bottom is soft and sandy, and rather steep, which makes it suitable for surfing, given that the weather permits. Showers and toilets are available, and there is a general store several minutes away. You will find food places in the area too. Shade is not common, so bring a sun umbrella. Put Napili Beach on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Lahaina sightseeing planner.

  • Top 3 location in Maui, mostly fish but green sea turtles too, mostly on the north end. Good for snorkeling or SCUBA. Not as easy as Ka'anapali due to a stronger surf from the rocks and coral but...

  • Napili Bay Beach Trail is a 0.4 mile heavily trafficked out and back trail located near Lahaina, Hawaii that offers scenic views and is good for all skill levels. The trail is primarily used for walking, trail running, nature trips, and birding and is accessible year-round.
  • Great place to look for sea glass!
  • Amazing tidal pools full of sea life especially sea urchins.
  • Not much of a trail (that I could find based on the description) but a beautiful view and a nice beach
  • easy walk, not a hike
