15 Beautiful Snorkeling Spots  In Maui, Hawaii

1. Ho’okipa Beach

Located just off of the Road to Hana, it’s another great place for turtle-watching, as well as some excellent surfing.  

2. Kaulahao Beach

It’s also a popular option for underwater photography, so make sure that you bring your camera with you.

3. Kanaha Beach Park

The visibility is generally best during the drier months, as rain tends to stir up dirt and create a cloudy runoff from the river.  

4. Waiʻānapanapa State Park

Much like Hana Bay, Waiʻānapanapa State Park is a potential East Coast snorkeling option if the water is calm. 

5. Hana Bay Beach Park

As an added bonus, the Road to Hana, which leads directly to this gorgeous spot, is considered one of Hawaii’s.

6. Ahihi-Kinau Reserve

Once you’re there, be mindful of the sharp rocks, and enjoy some truly phenomenal swimming!
