Ulua Beach, Wailea
(4.7/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
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. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Wailea holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Ulua Beach and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
