The entirety of Kapalua is one huge resort consisting of more than 20,000 acres on Maui's northwest shore. Once home to pineapple plantations, you'll find many references to the history of the area, including the aptly named Plantation Course, one of several golf courses in Kapalua. Many make a visit here just for the world-class links but if you're not a golfer, be sure to hit the sand at D.T. Fleming Beach. Considered one of the most beautiful Maui beaches, it is located next to the well-appointed Ritz Carlton Kapalua. Another lodging option, Kapalua Villas, offers condominium-type units that make extended stays very comfortable. Both hotels offer shuttles throughout the property, making it easy to access any of the restaurants or other amenities. With everything you need within the property, you probably won't feel the need to leave the Kapalua once you get there.
