Makena Landing is the perfect place to snorkel or scuba,kayak or paddleboard. Green sea turtles are here everyday,or sunning on the rocks. I love watching the whales and the tourists learning new water skills. My husband and I use this park to set in the shade and carve my ipus or his Santa Claus'sWe have met many wonderful people here and had many picnics here too. The sunsets are often great also.

Arguably this used to be the best part of Maui. We stayed here at a family place twenty years ago and it is the top of the top. Now there are others who realize this place is fabulous at the development has encroached and overwhelmed this place. Still have to give it 5 stars. Snorkeling superb.

Best place on Maui to have a very high chance of seeing turtles. We've been here a few times and are never disappointed. The snorkeling is good, the diving is excellent and even during a busy time there's usually some parking if you wait around a little bit. The only minor downside is that the beach is pretty small and rocky and the entrance is a little bit challenging if you're not used to entering the water with waves splashing you.

Best snorkel and shore dive (scuba) on the southern shore if you want:- a sandy beach for easy entry,- bathroom facility and rinsing shower, and- close parking.You need to be willing to swim ~50 meters to get to the good reef, and further to get to the five caves to the north.

This historic cove is an out of the way hidden gem. Excellent snorkeling in a cove that is full of vibrant colors and sea life. Has bathrooms and showers. Not much parking sho if you go try to go early for a bbq and a day of getting in this bay. Has a little beach for entering the water, bring chairs as there is no place to sit. Aloha

Great beach in South Maui. We visited late in day for a quick snorkel to check out our scuba masks before our dive the next day. Beach is on the small side but wasn’t crowded. The surrounding park had restrooms and outdoor showers...and plenty of space for sitting to ocean watch or sun.Very easy in and out for swimming or snorkeling, but visibility not great and marine life was sparse.

Simply amazing snorkel and diving location. The ocean floor is sand and is great for first time divers to get their bearings on things. The reef is vibrant and alive with wildlife. We went in December where the whales come to migrate. You can hear them singing below the surface. Plenty of sea turtles swimming in the water, too. Small today bathrooms and showers present as well.

If you're a scuba diver or snorkeler this is a great place to go and explore and sea turtles possibly some white tip sharks and some of the caves. Not a deep dive but a good check out place if you're planning on doing any bigger Dives. Easy parking and showers to clean your equipment off. Very popular get there early
