Kapalua Beach is a small beach located at the base of the Kapalua Golf Club's Bay Course in Kapalua Bay. Rich, golden white sand and swaying palm trees line this secluded little beach. This sliver of sand is a hidden gem and is often un-crowded. It offers ultimate island scenery since Molokai is also visible from here. Snorkeling is excellent because of the protective features of the Kapalua Bay.

Two lava fingers extend out into the ocean creating a beautiful blue crescent moon-shaped aquatic playground. Conditions are always calm unless there is a major northwest swell. There is an easy sandy entry and lots of coral reef immediately offshore. You will observe tons of sea life in these warm calm waters. To get there, you must find the public access which is really pretty easy.

Just find the public parking lot for Kapalua Beach between Merriman's Restaurant and the Sea House Restaurant on Lower Honoapiilani Road, less than a mile west of the Ritz Carlton. If the parking lot is full, there is usually parking off the street, but you may have to walk a way if you get there late.

"We would have never known this beach was here unless someone told us"
Reviewed April 8, 2014
We would have never known this beach was here unless someone told us. And boy are we glad they did! What a great place for snorkeling! The water was so clear and calm. I couldn’t believe it. The beach wasn’t that crowded considering how beautiful it was. Must be that people are just not familiar with this beach because we thought it was absolutely marvelous. The parking lot looks like it’s for condo owners only. It is right next to Naplili restaurants and condos but there is usually parking. We think we’ve found our secret beach on Maui. Shhh… don’t tell anyone.
