Kapalua Bay Beach, once named America’s best beach in 2018, is known for its beautiful waves, vibrant colors, and soft sand. It is located in the Kapalua neighborhood of Maui, Hawaii, and it attracts people from all over the world every year. It is one of the most popular locations in the region to go swimming, and it is relatively accessible. Because the cove is protected, the waves are not nearly as choppy as in other parts of the area. This is a fun place to go snorkeling and scuba diving. If you keep your eyes open, you might spot a few eels and sea turtles on these Kapalua Bay beaches!
