Maui: Snorkel with the Turtles
Hawaii › Turtle Town
Added by The Outbound Collective
- Getting up close (but not personal) with sea turtles
- Family friendly beach with restrooms and showers
- Duration: A couple hours
Turtle Town technically spans the area between Nahuna Beach and Black Sand Beach, but because Maluaka Beach has some of the best snorkeling on the island, many consider it the epicenter of Turtle Town. Beacause this beach is protected from trade winds by Haleakala, the water is calm, making it a great place to snorkel and an easy spot where kids can swim. If you're looking for sea life, head to the south end of the beach, near the rocks; this is where the reef begins. Keep in mind that turtles aren't afraid to come into shallow water, so if you're not comfortable in deep water, you may still get to see a few.
