Beaches

Kapalua Bay, "America's Best Beach"
In 1991, Kapalua Bay gained worldwide attention with its accolade in which a study ranked first out of a total of 650 beaches. The survey was based on 50 physical, biological and human considerations, including texture and color of sand, frequency of breaking waves and degree of solitude. This famous beach fronts Kapalua Bay Hotel and includes a beach activities desk offering a wide variety of watersports equipment and activities including snorkeling.


D.T. Fleming Beach
Fronting The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua, D.T. Fleming Beach is a long white sand beach great for running and sunning. A variety of beach activities and equipment are available through the beach activities desk, including snorkeling, kayaking and boogie boarding.


Oneloa Beach
This white sand beach stretches from The Bay Villas to The Ironwoods, Oneloa Beach is a favorite of locals for boogie boarding and just plain sun worshipping in a secluded setting.


Honolua and Mokule'ia Bays
Since 1978, Honolua Bay and the adjoining Mokule'ia Bay, located just north of Kapalua, have been protected by the State. The late Colin C. Cameron, Kapalua's founder, is credited with having the State of Hawai'i declare Honolua Bay as a "Marine Snorkel Life Conservation District" in an effort to protect the island's unique ocean resources. Fishing is strictly prohibited. Beneath the waves, submerged gardens thrive containing beds of lava rock rich in a variety of corals and abundant marine life, including humuhumunukunukuapua' a (Hawaii' s State fish), manini, aholehole, uhu, octopus, damsel fish and sea urchins, to name a few. Honolua is an excellent place to snorkel.
