Kapalua Bay Beach

Explore the Coast of Maui

Renowned as one of Maui's premier swimming destinations, Kapalua Bay Beach stands out for its excellent protection, catering to both timid and young swimmers. Acknowledged as the ideal spot for families, the bay's consistent shelter makes it a haven for children, although it can become bustling with visitors. While the water clarity may not be optimal for snorkeling within the bay, venturing around the right side to the cove known as "Cliff House" reveals clearer waters and abundant marine life. Water shoes are recommended for exploring the ocean without concerns of stubbing toes on the ocean floor.

Kapalua Bay's accessibility near the Sea House Restaurant at Napili Kai condos ensures convenient entry. Look for the "Napili Lani" sign and a yellow fire hydrant nearby, leading to a blue beach access sign. Additional parking options are available next door at Merriman's (from 6 a.m.–3 p.m.) and at the tennis courts across the street accessed from Kapalua Drive, providing flexibility for visitors. The picturesque palm trees framing the beach and the bay's overall tranquility make Kapalua Bay a favored destination for a relaxed ocean experience on Maui.
