Went snorkeling at the reefs in Olowalu today. Had an awesome time. You need to find an open area to swim out a bit, maybe 100 ft, but then the fish are more plentiful and the reefs are like underwater statues. There are passages through...More
Found this with the help of Gypsy guide app which I highly recommend but it was just so so the day that we were there. There are plenty of locations around the island that are equally as good if you are not on this side...More
I was told by a local spear fisherman to go to this beach and look for the Umamaulea fish. We were out for 2 1/2 hours and had a blast. First time spear fishing so we treated the outing more like a snorkeling trip with...More
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.

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.
