Was told by a local dive shop to snorkel here. The water was shallow and calm so easy to snorkel around the many reefs. Some of the reefs are close to shore so check before you start to swim. Lots of fish to see, no...More
It can be the most breath taking snorkelspot. BUT-you have to swim thru murky water to get out far enough to see the beauty of the expansive reef. And it can be far to swim. I am not always comfortable in murky water especially because...More
Limited shade here. Bring your beach chairs & snorkel gear. Ok beach to spend a few hours. *Watch out for sharp thorns on beach from trees-(wear sandals or water shoes). Parking is right by beach, convenient. Beach is right by highway marker 14.
I consider Olowalu Beach is one of the most friendly with the tourist coming in Maui for snorkeling.
It is true that the sand strip is very narrow, but the reef area is extensively long and you have the opportunity to park anywhere along side...More
This was an awesome snorkel spot. There's a huge reef right here that stretches in both directions and out into the ocean a huge distance. The reef comes very close to the shore so be careful not to step on it when you're wading in....More
I thought today about why my husband and I love this beach because it definitely is not your golden sand and blue water. It is so easy to get on the beach like 15 feet from your car. The sand is hard and you can...More
Located just south of Leoda's pie shop is awesome snorkeling. Often very calm waters & beautiful reef. No restrooms or showers, but plenty of parking right off the highway. Just be very careful for the thorny sticks that fall from the trees.
This beach is located just off the main HWY at mile marker 14 about 7 min drive south of Lahaina. Check out the eats at Leoda's which is opposite the road to the beach about 2 mins drive you can't miss it. This beach doesn't...More

Hi yes it is sometimes called turtle town but there is also a turtle town in Wailea! so I think there are a few places called turtle town. If you are willing to swim out fairly far you will see turtles at Olowalu. You will see turtles close to shore there too but the water is murky. A good and easy place for turtles is in front of the Japanese graveyard just after Lahaina toward Ka'anapali, I can't remember the name of the park - there is a lifeguard station there. Lots of turtles all along S. Kihei and Wailea.
