Kalapaki Beach reviews
Great beach, a lot of shoreline with moderate amount of people. So much room to walk, explore, enjoy.

There is plenty of things you and I, tourists as well as locals can do here to make this beach a little cleaner. Lots of wave.

Love this beach, easy to get to, versatile, surfing, body boarding, swimming, kayaking, not huge waves but not small either. Great place to soak up some waves for a few hours!
The small Kalapaki Beach lies in the small arc at the Nawiliwilli Bay. At the western end of the beach is the starting point of the famous Ironman of Hawaii. There, the first discipline, swimming, begins. When strolling on the beach, if the waves allow it, you can watch the surfers.
