Beautiful Napili has tucked away on the northwest coast of Maui. Surrounded by serene greenery, golden sand beaches, and turquoise waters, this charming town is a popular vacation destination and beautiful place to call home.
The area throughout the Ka’anapali region boasted a substantial population of native Hawaiians, including Napili. The shoreline provided access to fishing while the verdant valleys offered excellent conditions for farming. The area then became cultivated in sugarcane with the surrounding area populated by plantation workers. Today, Napili retains its “old Hawaii” oceanside village feel, preserving the natural beauty of Napili while also offering a variety of vacation rentals, luxury estates, shops, and fine dining options.
Molokai and Lanai are visible across the bay and most Napili homes are built to take advantage of this fantastic and unique view. Oceanside luxury estates in Napili are truly spectacular with one-of-a-kind architecture and sweeping ocean views. Napili gated communities boast quiet cul-de-sacs, expertly crafted single family homes, and gentle ocean breezes. Homes in exclusive Kahana Ridge are highly prized for their extra large lots and spectacular views.
Kapalua Airport is minutes from Napili and the Lahaina Yacht Club is a scenic 20-minute drive. Kapalua Airport Napili Plaza puts everything at your fingertips with a grocery store, pharmacy, and restaurants. Area resorts are also outfitted with fine dining options like Merriman’s, Sansei, and Plantation House in Kapalua.
Napili is north of Lahaina on Maui’s northwestern shore. Napili Bay is a gorgeous crescent-shaped bay with golden sand and turquoise waters. Interesting lava rock just offshore provides a safe haven for coral and colorful fish making this an excellent snorkeling location. Napili weather is comfortable with rain overnight usually clearing by the early morning. Kahului Airport, the major airport for Maui, is a one hour drive along the coast. The coastal community of Napili is a popular place for visitors and residents but retains its natural charm.
