Wonderful beach for snorkeling with the turtles and plenty of parking. Narrow beach in spots with plenty of trees for shades. Park right off the road and walk 20 feet to the beach. You have to get out at least 200 to 300 yards from shore to see the best coral and fish, many people are too close to shore. We saw 5 Hawaii Green Sea Turtles eating the algae off the coral and many colorful fish. Great Day!

Beautiful sandy beach with plenty of shade. Beach is close to the road and it could be difficult finding parking if it’s hot and a busy weekend. Enjoyed the warm water and surf.

Here is the very spot for snorkeling, the sea is calm, beach is very long, you can find easily places for young children. We go far to the reefs for snorkeling and meet turtles, the young ones are colorful. My daughter had met a 5 feet shark at 20 feet deep...

The snorkeling was amazing. I recommend going out far (visibility is much better), and swimming in a channel as far as you can. Little sand channels will spread in the middle of the reef, and they're good for when you're trying to get out and not hit your fins on the reef. We saw lots of fish, a grand total of 7 turtles, and mountains of coral. Pretty magical. The beach isn't an amazing beach- thorns and sticks everywhere, side of the street parking, and the sand was grey in color. I did like the amount of trees because they provided shade and a place to hang your stuff. Recommend for anyone looking to snorkel!

We came across Olowalu Beach when driving around Maui and pulled in to have a look. It is a sand parking lot and we were concerned that our vehicle may get stuck. When we got out of the car we noticed an unpleasant smell of garbage and saw the "shark bite" sign. It appeared to be a favorite spot for locals and there were many children in the water. We decided to drive on as there was so much to see on the island.
