Kapalua Beach, Kapalua

#1 of 14 in Things to do in Kapalua
A C-shaped cove makes Kapalua Beach a prime location for snorkeling, swimming, and sunbathing. Also referred to as D.T. Fleming Beach, the white sand shoreline fronts the Ritz-Carlton, with public access available from Honokahua Bay. The waves here are known for good surfing and boogie boarding conditions, while the abundance of coral reefs and sea life make this beach one of the best snorkeling spots in the area. Head to the north end of the beach for clear snorkeling (thanks to the more rocky terrain). Sand tends to sit in the bay's center, making the water more cloudy there. Watch for sea turtles or Hawaiian monk seals along the beach. Use our Kapalua online trip itinerary builder to arrange your visit to Kapalua Beach and other attractions in Kapalua.

  • Picture-perfect beach. Landed up snorkelling with a very chill honu (giant sea turtle) and lots of cool fish. Almost like being in an aquarium.  more »
