Truly a wonderful place to relax, snorkel, or paddle board. If we are wanting to do the beach on the West end of Maui, this is always our first choice. protected, clean, beautiful, excellent snorkeling. a great example of Maui's wonders.

Best snorkel spot for kids as its really safe. Great clear water too. We saw lots of fish and turtles. Get there early for a close parking spot.

Lived in Napili, swam here everyday for 5 years. So many memories, don't miss the turtles in the cove next to the beach.

Beach was beautiful with soft sand and small shore surf. Had some close outside rollers that would be perfect for the beginning surfer or boogie boarding. Snorkeling and paddle boarding is nice too.
