Parking is scarce, even at 9:30 in the morning. Park up the road at the Pineapple Grill parking lot across the street - just go down to the lower parklot and you're basically parking across the street
Kid friendly and nice snorkeling
Kapalua Bay is a sheltered marine sanctuary perfect for snorkeling. A nearby activities desk can help plan your day at this very special beach.
Great beach with good swimming and snorkeling. Parking lot is small but everyone seems to park at the golf course up the road, as did we. (It's free!)
Sea turtles and fish everywhere! Bring snorkel gear!
Great snorkeling here! Water can get a little murky, but lots of fish to see!
Go snorkeling here! Saw a turtle, three(!) different eels, & a ton of fish. Head down while it's raining (you're going to get wet anyways) & you might score a parking spot. Rinse station for your gear
A great place to snorkel. If you're lucky you'll find a couple of sea turtles here too.
The best snorkeling we have found in the area. You will see a turtle or two almost every day. Try Merriman's for a cocktail and enjoy the sunset view from the first row ♥
Bring your snorkeling gear! It's amazing
Great sandy beach to chill at, snorkeling is ok. Great spot for beginners. Water is pretty cloudy.
I'd say the best beach to go snorkling for free on the west coast! Turtles, octopus, squid, and tons of fish to see for free, why not?
Public Access at Kapalua Pl
Amazing snorkeling just off the beach, lots of fish to see
Great beach for catching some rays and snorkeling! A hidden gem...
Get there early. Park between Merriman's and the Napili Kai. Since they got rid of the hotel, there's no more easy parking. Best combo of beach & snorkeling on the west side.
Try Safe House if you can. It is pricey but totally worth it.
Snorkeling is good when the weather is calm.
Easy snorkeling here. You can see fish, urchin, and sometimes even turtles, within wading distance from the shore. Even better if you swim out around the corner.
There's a big sea turtle that hides away in an outcropping about mid way between each end of the beach and half way out. Seen him eating a good 10 feet from shore on occasion. You can rent gear too!
Some of the best Snorkling. Clear water, lots of fish, sea urchins and we even saw a turtle.
Find the cave at the far right
Great spot for snorkling and be on the look out for sea turtles :)
Not as windy as some beaches and a very cool backdrop. Water is rocky and there are fish right up to the shore. Cool scene to simply lounge.
Strong current just beyond rock line. Careful. It will pull you out quickly. Save for good swimmers. Closer to beach is calm and good for children.
My wife swam about 2 feet from. Sea turtle near the rocks on the right side of the beach if you ate facing the ocean.
Good snorkeling, if you swim out beyond the breakers. Look for sea turtles, they're out there!
A lovely beach with fine sand - but when extremely windy, the sand blows everywhere! Set up near the rocky outcroppings at the edge of the beach for a spot with the least wind.
Прекрасный залив где действительно можно поплавать с огромными черепахами!! Обязательно возьмите маску - увидели черепаху, подождали минут 15 и вы уже плаваете с ней:)
