With many options and activities to choose from just mere steps away from your private Maui villa, Kapalua offers the best combination of luxury living and unending vacation to be had anywhere in the world! Here are just a few of the amazing experiences you’ll have when you make the move to beautiful Kapalua:
Sandwiched between Kapalua and Kahana, Napili Bay features a serene, lush environment making it one of the best places to relax on Maui. Popular with both locals and tourists, it’s a great place for swimming and snorkeling, with a higher than average likelihood of spotting Hawaiian Sea Turtles lounging about the bay. Although weekends can at times be busy, you can always find peace and serenity at Napili Bay.
Kapalua Bay Beach
As most would agree, Kapalua Bay is simply one of the most beautiful beaches in Maui. In fact, this beautiful stretch of sand has been consistently named as one of the best beaches in the world and has even taken home the title of Best Beach in America! Defined by an exquisite half-moon shaped bay, this amazing beach is perfect for swimming, snorkeling, or simply relaxing under the warm tropical sunshine. Surrounding this beach is a quiet and peaceful residential neighborhood home to luxurious vacation rentals and resorts. The place is so beautiful that many tourists have ended up staying for good and invested in a real estate here.
Farmers Market Maui
Located just a few minutes from Kapalua Bay Beach, Farmers Market Maui is a vibrant storefront featuring many local goodies one would typically only find at a traditional farmer’s market! A great place to visit for those looking to buy all-local produce, including locally grown fruits such as banana, papaya, mango, and apples, as well as locally grown herbs, local coffee, and much more. Depending on the season, visitors will also find rare fruits like lychee, dragon fruit, and watermelon radishes.
Honolua Bay Marine Reserve
Aside from Napili Bay, another great spot for snorkeling in Kapalua is Honolua Bay. Located off Highway 30, about a 20-min drive from Lahaina, Honolua Bay Marine Reserve consists of the Slaughterhouse Beach, also known as Mokuleia Bay, Honolua Bay, Windmill Beach, and Lipoa Point. Honolua Bay is the main attraction of the area and an ideal spot for snorkeling during the summer months. But if you would prefer to simply admire the incredible views of the area, head to Lipoa Point, a 2-mile loop trail that serves as a viewing point for wildlife in the area.
If you are into hiking, head to D.T. Fleming Beach Park, a beautiful beach park only a few minutes from Kapalua Bay Beach on foot. From here, take the short coastal trail going to a lesser-known site known as “Dragon’s Teeth.” Named for its striking resemblance to rows of dragons teeth, this unique formation of lava rock takes a simple, under a mile hike to enjoy! To get here, begin your hike towards the left end of the beach park and journey above the shore break to reach the lower bank that borders the golf course. Follow the tree line, and you will come across the Honokahua Burial Site, an ancient burial site of cultural significance to Native Hawaiians. But take note that this site is off-limits to the public, and you are not allowed to walk on it, so please only admire it from afar. Continue walking towards the path to the Dragon’s Teeth until you reach a patch of disheveled trees. At this point, cut right, and you’ll arrive at the Dragon’s Teeth site.
Kapalua is home to some of the top golf courses in Hawaii, such as the Plantation Course and The Bay Course. These golf courses consistently rank as the top golf course in the country and have received numerous accolades from international golf publications such as Golf Magazine and Golf Digest Courses throughout Kapalua feature beautifully maintained grounds and opens to the stunning views of the West Maui coastline, including the nearby islands of Lanai and Molokai. Here, you can practice and perfect your golfing skills on your own, or you also have the option to take up golf lessons with noted professionals by enrolling at the Kapalua Golf Academy. If you’re seeking a relaxing golf getaway in Hawaii, Kapalua is the place to be.
