Welcome to part two of this Kapalua area spotlight! If you missed out on the first part of the series, feel free to jump back a week and check it out. Many of those who move to Maui do so for our great island lifestyle, which of course includes going to the beach! Let's continue this brief tour of Kapalua and move on to a few beaches which are popular with both visitors and residents.
Our first stop is Kapalua Bay. Protected by two reefs, this sheltered bay is a great place for families with children to play on the sand without the worry of large waves crashing along the shoreline. Kapalua Bay is also excellent for first time snorkelers; the calm waves and crystal clear water provide an excellent environment to get accustomed to exploring and discovering the underwater life.
Moving our way north, we find Oneloa Beach. This stretch of white sandy beach is a nice place to sunbathe and take in beautiful island views. There is a small reef which runs nearly the whole length of the beach, so on a calm and clear day, visitors may also try their hand at snorkeling.
Our next stop? D.T. Fleming Beach Park! This beach was named in honor of David Thomas Fleming, a man who greatly dedicated himself to Maui, by the Maui Land & Pineapple Co. D.T. Fleming Beach Park is another nice beach for sunbathing and relaxing along the shore. Surf can get high when the wind kicks up, so it's a great place for surfers and body boarders looking for a fun day at the beach.
Honolua Bay is our last stop on our beach journey. Although the shoreline may be rocky and the visibility poor in the actual bay, experienced snorkelers and scuba divers will find that the water is clear further from the shore. However, snorkeling and diving should be avoided during the winter as the surf tends to pick up. But this makes for great conditions for surfing enthusiasts!
Spending the day at the beach or playing a round of golf are certainly not the only things you can do in Kapalua, but they do give residents and visitors great memories of Maui. If you're ready to create your own memories on Maui and move to the island, I'd be happy to help you with your Maui real estate search!
