Endless stretches of white sand beach curving along crystal clear aqua waters are part of the Maui dream and the reason visitors flock to this tropical isle from around the world. While some of Maui beaches are best for lazing in the shade of a swaying palm, others are ideal for trying out the island’s many watersports. Be sure to do your research before you hit the beach so you can find one that will be a perfect fit for you.
Pack your beach gear and plan to spend the day on one of Maui’s most picturesque beaches. Kapalua Beach has become a well-known name on Maui after being ranked several times as “America’s Best Beach.” With pristine white sand, swaying palms, and tranquil waters, Kapalua Beach is waiting to win you over.
Reefs that extend outward from both ends of the beach create a naturally sheltered area, keeping larger waves at bay and resulting in calm waters ideally suited for swimming and snorkeling. The center of the beach offers a sandy ocean bottom, perfect for a leisurely swim or float. Beginning snorkelers will enjoy calm conditions and few waves with which to contend at Kapalua Beach. Snorkelers should head to either end of the beach near the reef, where water is clearer and abundant sea life can be seen. Kapalua Beach is ideal for a relaxing day in the sand and sea!
Planning Your Excursion to the Maui Beaches
Kapalua Beach is located along Maui’s northwest shoreline in the popular resort area of Kapalua. The parking lot is fairly small, so get there early to snag a spot. There is no lifeguard on duty.
