For the best Maui snorkeling, you could snorkel Molokini Crater, Turtle Town, and Honolua Bay. We found it very easy to get into the water right here since there’s a nice sandy bottom. The snorkeling on the south end of the seaside is meant to be the best, however since we were brief on time, we simply hopped into the water on the north end, which was nearer to the place we might parked across from Keawala’i Church.
Maluaka Seashore is just south of Wailea at the finish of Makena Street. The doorway is off of the main street so most visitors drive previous without even understanding it’s there. Come on… tell the reality… it is kinda enjoyable to know a secret huh? Okay, properly it is not high secret, nevertheless it’s undoubtedly considered one of Maui’s lesser known seashores.

The gentle sand is perfect for tanning, relaxing, volleyball, and the kids.
If the parking lot is full, there’s an alternate parking lot further south. (Observe, this is where you must attempt to park should you’ll be snorkeling at the south end of the beach.) Skip the turn onto Honoiki Road and drive additional south alongside Makena Alanui Drive previous the Makena Beach Resort until you see Makena Street. Make a right flip right here and comply with it to the parking zone on the finish.
Although a large space, typically, most people who say ‘Turtle Town’ are specifically referring to Maluaka Seashore. Why? As a result of Maluaka is the most effective snorkeling beach in the Turtle City Maui area! It additionally occurs to be my favourite place to snorkel on the south shore of Maui. Calm blue water crammed with fish and marine life all along a white sand seaside. Properly, technically, the fish aren’t alongside the sand, but we’ll get to that later. As its title suggests, Turtle City Maui is known for its high population of Hawaiian green sea turtles.
We found it really easy to get into the water here since there’s a good sandy bottom. The snorkeling on the south end of the seashore is meant to be the best, however since we had been quick on time, we just hopped into the water on the north finish, which was nearer to where we would parked throughout from Keawala’i Church.
