Perched on the West Maui coastline between Kahana and Kapalua is the Napili area. The main draw of Napili is that it’s tucked away from most of the West Maui hustle and bustle, so residents and visitors love this area.

It also happens to be named after one of the best swimming and snorkeling beaches on Maui, the famed Napili Bay. Surrounding Napili Bay, you will find a quiet community full of condominiums, vacation rentals, small hotels, beachside resorts and private homes.

Real estate in Napili is definitely a smart and lucrative choice. For those looking for full-time or part-time homes, there are many opportunities. For those looking for investment opportunities, Napili is also a good choice due to the fact that it’s a popular area in West Maui for visitors to book vacation rentals.

There are currently 125 condos and private homes for sale in Napili; two are foreclosures. The median price for a condo/home in Napili is $510,000, but you will also find properties well over the $1 million level.

When living or staying in the Napili area, you are just a short walk away from the beach, restaurants and ocean activities.

Without a doubt, one of the most popular things to do in Napili is to snorkel and see the green Hawaiian sea turtles. Napili Bay hosts a beautiful sandy beach, calm and clear swimming pool-like ocean water, beautiful underwater coral reef formations and lava fingers, and a gentle shore break.


If you’d like to avoid tourist crowds and hard parking situations, visit Napili Bay during the morning to early afternoon hours, or weekday sunsets. Avoid the weekends.

Napili Bay is a great beach for everyone—toddlers to seniors.
