Napoli was my favourite beach for snorkelling. Lots of fish and I saw three turtles. Everywhere seemed windy during our stay and this beach calmer than most. It was only 10 minutes from our hotel, so we were able to arrive early. We parked on the road and walked in. There may be public bathrooms somewhere but I didn't see... More

We had a great idea to go to this beach, we heard the snorkeling is great but unfortunately a couple hundred people thought the same thing. Maybe another day and time.

We visited here after breakfast at Gazebo one morning.... lots of rocks and heavy surf. Overall, a small beach, really crowded and nothing spectacular. We stayed in Ka'anaplai and the beach is 10 times nicer....

Or at least tied with about 15 other beaches. I like this one because I was there age 7 and got rolled up the beach by a wave, so had to go back to experience the same. Sea House restaurant great as well but this is a superb beach to float, surf, snorkel, sun.

This is our third trip to Napili beach over the years, and we are rookies compared to the Snowbirds who visit annually over the decades. Although it is about a 2 hour drive to the Kahului Airport, once you are here, there is no need to go further than Lahaina for activities. The accommodations are all 2-story condos and hotel...
