Hapuna makes a strong case for being Hawaiis finest beach, possessing all the traits that vacationers love. The beach is wide and long, stretching for several hundred yards and offers plenty of play room with fine soft sand. The clear water offers excellent snorkeling towards the rocky south point when the ocean is calm. Skilled swimmers can snorkel almost a mile down the coast to reach the beautiful Wailea Bay. When the surf picks up Hapuna often serves up some excellent boogie boarding..
