Ulua Beach, Wailea

beach now
Ulua Beach is just south of Mokapu Beach in Wailea. This little beach is great for when the wind is blowing side-offshore since there are trees on the north side of the beach.

When you arrive, you’ll notice loads of scuba divers dropping off their gear. The reefs on the north side of the beach have some excellent shore diving opportunities. If you dive further than the first reef, you’ll find a turtle cleaning station. We’ve seen up to 8 turtles at a time having their shells cleaned by small colorful fish. Once we even saw a huge manta ray feeding on some plankton brought out from the full moon the night before.

If there are large waves (either south or west swell), you’ll want to be careful swimming, and snorkeling/diving is Ill-advised.
