If you only get the chance to visit one beach on your trip, Kapalua Bay should be the one. Kapalua Bay has won numerous awards, including "Best Beach in the World," by Conde Nast. Kapalua Bay truly has it all! Because the bay is so well protected, some of the very best snorkeling on Maui can be found right here. Gentle waves, soft white sand and breathtaking beauty are what continually keep this beach on the list of top beaches in the world. Honus (turtles) and Hawaiian Monk Seals frequent this beach and are commonly found taking a rest on the sandy shores. If you are snorkeling, do not be surprised to find yourself side by side with one of these giant Honus! Be sure to visit the bay for a sunset; it will be one like you have never experienced before! Kapalua Bay is truly heaven on earth!
The Kapalua® Coastal Trail begins and ends at Kapalua Beach. We suggest finishing your walk at the Kapalua Bay and taking in a spectacular sunset. If you are too tired to walk home, do not forget to call the free shuttle; they will be happy to pick you up and drop you off at your door!
A public restroom and showers are available for use.
