Kapalua Bay Beach Information

Kapalua Bay Beach Information

Kapalua Beach is a golden sand cove in front of the Kapalua Bay hotel, with lava rock points protecting the water on both ends from any large swells.

The other edge of the sand is bordered by a coconut tree grove, a path, and lawns with swaying palm trees dotting the landscape. The beach gently slopes towards a calm, clear bay that's deep enough for snorkeling, wide enough for kayaking, and flat enough for young swimmers to safely paddle around, too.

A variety of tropical fish gather near the lava rocks, so it's a wonderful area to explore the sea life as well. Tranquil waves slowly roll in at this postcard perfect location and the surf is never too strong or powerful.

The hotel end includes chairs, umbrellas, and an activities center for its guests, but there is also public access on the other side and the entire beach is open to the public. Lifeguard, restroom, and outdoor shower facilities are provided.

It's popular and somewhat crowded at times, with only 30 or so public parking spots. You can walk to the beach if you're staying at the Kapalua Bay hotel, or use the small parking lot located off Lower Honoapiilani Rd. by Napili Kai Beach Club if you're not.
