One of our favourite beaches -- the sand is really soft and the water nice and calm (especially during the summer months). Great place for the kids. Bonus: the honu (sea turtles) love coming into the shallow waters there (but PLEASE don't pet them!). Bring your snorkel gear!

Heres a quarter mile of sandy beach just a 5 minute walk from Honokeana Cove. You can take the beach path from Napili Point Condos or The Gazebo, or you can walk down Hui Drive to the officially marked public access way. Napili Bay is consistently rated as one of Hawaiis most beautiful beaches, and its great for boogie boarding too! The Sea House Restaurant is at the north end of this beach.

What a great little bay! The water can be rough further down, but up here it's almost always nice. The only downside is that it can get pretty crowded, and you may have to walk a ways - there's not really good dedicated beach access parking.

Wow the best beach for families! We have tried several beaches while in Maui, all which were beautiful. However, this is the best for kids. Water is calm enough for the kids to play but the small surf provides enough strength to push the kiddos to shore on their boogie boards or while body surfing.

One of our favorites. Consistently great snorkeling-- more turtles than Kapalua but still lots of fish. Boogie boarding/body surfing nice sand for sand castles. For the more adventurous there are SUP and surfing options. On the south end there are nice calm warm tide pools where the littlest ones can wade and chase little fish and crabs. Snorkel Bobs and 808 are just across the street from the center of the beach for your gear needs and Sea House or Gazebo have breakfast and lunch covered.

Great family beach. In the afternoons on the south side of the bay, you almost always can find turtles - some pretty big!!. Usually good body surfing or boogie boarding too.

Our favorite beach for hanging out all day. Grab the beach chairs and cooler from the Honua Kai condo you are staying in and head out to Napili for the day. Seahouse restaurant on the north end of the bay has happy hour 2pm-5pm if you want to escape the sun for a bit and have a mai tai too (the kalua pork tacos are are great deal too). Although, we don't think you'll get bored of snorkeling, playing in the waves, or stand up paddle on this beautiful bay.

One of my favorite beaches. Very calm and you can just relax on a floaty or a paddle board around the bay. Great for kids. Set up your spot on the North side of the bay next to Sea House Restaurant so you can sneak up and get a mai tai or a frozen lava flow.

Best kid beach on all of Maui! Golden sand until the water is way over your head, no coral to cut your feet. View of Moloka'i is fabulous.

Napili beach is a really nice beach for the whole family where you can snorkel, boogie board, sit in the sun or have a nice lunch on the patio of the Sea House restaurant!

Nice bay to swim, play, and relax at. Soft sand stretches across the bay, with tall coconut trees to provide some shades. There are restroom and a shower facility nearby.

Here’s a quarter mile of sandy beach just a 5 minute walk from Honokeana Cove. You can take the beach path from Napili Point Condos or The Gazebo, or you can walk down Hui Drive to the officially marked public access way. Napili Bay is consistently rated as one of Hawaii’s most beautiful beaches, and it’s great for boogie boarding too! Walking directions: turn left out of the Honokeana Cove driveway, walk 1/3 mile; go left on Hui Drive (where there are 3 stacked condo signs); past the Napili Sunset condos, and watch for the blue public access sign on the left side of the street.

The beach here is really nice for multiple reasons. The view, the bay with the turtles, the lack of large waves, the sand, and its a little less crowded here than other beaches.
