Two beautiful beaches, Kapalua Beach to the north is great for snorkeling. The Sea House restaurant is great for lunch (try to sit outside). Napili Beach is great for families.

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.
