Ulua Beach, Wailea

4.8
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.

  • 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.
