For the golf enthusiast, walk in the footsteps of legends at the annual home of the PGA TOUR's season-opening Tournament of Champions when you visit our Maui golf resort in Hawaii. Set amid a 23,000-acre historic pineapple plantation, KapaluaGÇÖs Plantation Course and Bay Course offer 2 18-hole golf experiences, each with distinct character, challenges and incredible views.

Snorkeling, scuba diving, surfing, paddle boarding, kayaking and variety of other water sports are available at any of the local beaches in the area:

D.T. Fleming Beach - This long, golden sand beach fronting The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua is perfect for running and sunning. Winter swells make this a popular location for boogie boarding and surfing.

Honolua Bay and Mokule`ia Bay - Located just north of the property. Since 1978, the area has been protected by the State of Hawaii as Marine Conservation Districts. Beneath the waves, submerged gardens of coral house an abundance of marine life.

Honolua Bay is an excellent location for summer snorkeling, but due to the large swells that attract top surfers from around the world, this should not be attempted during winter months

Kapalua Bay GÇô With gentle breaking waves above and vibrant marine life below, Kapalua Bay offers a sheltered sanctuary for exploring the wonders of the ocean.

Oneloa Bay GÇô A favorite for locals seeking its secluded setting and fast-breaking winter surf. For those not desiring to get wet, the Kapalua Coastal Trail runs along the beachGÇÖs sand dunes.

Recreation opportunities are also available through Jean-Michel CousteauGÇÖs Ambassadors of the Environment. This program offers a range of environmental activities for guests of all ages with trained naturalists, including, Cities Under The Sea, Adventures in Nature, Underwater Photography, Marine Debris to Artistry and Turtle Tracks. Adults and families can enjoy guided hikes, whale-watching excursions and underwater photography snorkeling sessions. The Ambassadors program creates opportunities for each participant to learn about HawaiiGÇÖs unique ecosystems while demonstrating their connection to the larger global systems. This program also seeks to inspire guests to live a more sustainable life and to gain a greater understanding of the relationships between land to sea, humans to nature, people to people and present to future. According to Jean-Michel Cousteau, GÇ£We expect everyone, by learning more about our natural world and their places within it, to return to their communities as environmental stewards or ambassadors of the environment.GÇ¥
