Ulua Beach, Wailea

Beach · Nature / Park
Nestled between two rocky points, Ulua Beach provides space for swimming, snorkeling, diving, basking in the sun, and--when the surf is up--boogie boarding. Ulua, meaning "adult crevalle fish," offers a bounty of fish and corals to spot while snorkeling and serves as a great place for inexperienced divers to have a few lessons. Watch for manta rays, sea turtles, sea horses, and moray eels here.

  • This was just an ok dive, nothing exciting. Entry was easy and of course you saw some things but just average.  more »
  • There is a decent amount of public parking and showers here which is always appreciated. The water was calm when we were here we were able to snorkel all the way around the point to Mokapu Beach...  more »

  • Spent lots of time here. The first day saw a turtle in many fish on the reefs. About 3 that afternoon, many whales appeared that could be seen from the beach. Two whales were very close and surfacing quite a bit. The second day I saw three turtles and an eel while snorkeling.
