Kapalua Bay Beach Ranked Third in the Nation

Once again Kapalua Bay Beach has ranked in the top ten of the nation's beaches
June 21, 2016

Kapalua Bay Beach

Kapalua has everything it needs to be a true piece of paradise; luxury condos, exclusive residences, professional level golf courses, and great restaurants. But this wouldn't mean much without the one, best part of Kapalua. The part that was there before we mere mortals found this paradise: the beach.

And we're not talking about just any beach. Kapalua Beach has ranked number three this year in "Dr. Beach's" top - 10 list for beaches in the United States. (The winning beach this year was Hanauma Bay on Oahu, and the second place winner was Siesta Beach in Sarasota, Florida.)

Moreover, this is not Kapalua Bay Beach's first win. When the top 10 list was first published in 1991 Kapalua was the first national winner. After winning, beaches are retired from the list. This year Dr. Beach, whose real name is Stephen Leatherman, started over. So once again Kapalua was eligible for the list, and of course made the top ten again. (Kapalua isn't the only winning beach in the area. In 2006 D.T. Fleming Beach was at the top of the list.)

Kapalua Bay Beach is on the north west side of Maui, and is sheltered and usually calm. This makes it the perfect beach for those whose adventure level doesn't go much past wading in the water, or for the beginning snorkeler. There are protective reefs on either side of the bay where the more adventurous will find a variety of local fish and other sea dwellers.

If you'd like to make strolling along Kapalua Bay Beach part of your regular morning routine, then the perfect place to live would be the Coconut Grove.  But there are many other near-by options as well: from the Kapalua Bay Villas and Kapalua Golf Villas, to the Ridge at Kapalua.

If you're going to live on the beach, then why not live on one of the top ranked beaches in the nation?
