Napili is located on Maui's northwest shore with idyllic beaches and some of West Maui's most picturesque shoreline views. With close access to shopping, dining and activities, staying in a Napili condo provides everything you need to enjoy a relaxing and luxurious Maui vacation.
Things To Do
You will find an abundance of activity options in the Napili area including land and sea adventures. Go snorkeling at Napili Bay Beach or embark on a sailing excursion. Hiking enthusiasts will enjoy the ridge top trails between Kapalua and Napili, or you can walk along the shore on the Napili-Kapalua loop. Take in sweeping West Maui views on a horseback ride. Close by are the upscale resort areas of Kapalua and Kaanapali with more great beaches as well championship golf courses, upscale boutique shops and a variety of restaurants. Golfers will appreciate the seaside holes of the Royal Kaanapali Golf Course and the recently renovated Royal Kaanapali Golf Course. After a day of adventure pamper yourself with a beach side massage or other luxurious spa treatments.
Napili Bay Beach is popular for snorkeling as well as scuba diving with an array of marine life inhabiting the coral reef including green sea turtles and myriad fish. Winter months often bring waves that are appreciated by body-boarders and surfers as well as the skim-boarders who like the relatively steep shoreline. Napili Bay Beach is relatively well-protected from the open sea making it a nice swimming beach when the water is calm. There is also good snorkeling on each end of the beach. Children should be watched closely on this type of shoreline, especially since there are no lifeguards at this beach. For more great beaches take a drive down to the crescent-shaped Kapalua Beach and also Kaanapali Beach where there is great snorkeling at Black Rock.
There are several great dining choices at the newly renovated Napili Plaza including Mama's Ribs & Rotisserie which serves up delicious pork ribs, salads and wraps as well as hearty local plate lunches to fuel your afternoon adventures. You can also pick up prepared foods as well as fresh seafood, meat, fruits and vegetables at the Napili Market along with sushi and baked goods. Maui Tacos and Bean Thai Restaurant are also great choices. Some lovely seaside dining options can be found in the nearby resort areas of Kapalua and Kaanapali. For sunset and ocean views try Merriman's Kapalua where they serve an exceptional Hawaii Regional Cuisine using the freshest of local ingredients including amazing ahi sashimi and Keahole lobster.
Napili Plaza includes more than 15 merchants with many Hawaii-themed gifts crafted by local artists. Water sports equipment can be purchased or rented at Boss Frog's Dive & Surf Shop. Upscale boutique shopping can be found at the local resort hotels in nearby Kapalua and also at Kaanapali Resort where there is a lovely oceanfront promenade with shops and restaurants including the Whalers Village with more than 90 stores offering everything from designer labels to beachwear, surf shops, Hawaiian collectibles, jewelry and art. More great shopping can be found to the south in Old Lahaina town which is known for its many art galleries. A bit farther south is the bustling commercial district of Kihei town and also the posh Wailea Resort and its upscale Shops at Wailea.
A rental car is recommended when staying in a Napili condo so you have easy access to local beaches and attractions as well as day trips to Lahaina town, Haleakala National Park and "Heavenly Hana" town. Maui's public bus system operates daily with service between towns in West, South and Central Maui including Haiku, Kula and the Maui Upcountry.
Weather and Ocean Conditions
Napili temperatures are typically in the mid-70s, often a bit cooler in the winter and a bit warmer in summer with balmy trade winds providing a pleasant cooling effect. This West Maui region is known for its plentiful sunshine with only moderate amounts of rain, often coming in passing rain showers that reveal colorful rainbows.
Napili Bay and other leeward shore West Maui beaches typically see calm ocean conditions great for water activities including snorkeling and swimming. Afternoons may be a bit windier on some days so morning snorkeling is often a good option. Intermittent swells can bring high surf and ocean conditions can change from day to day so it is always best to visit lifeguarded beaches and ask water safety personnel about the safest areas for the water activities you would like to enjoy.
