South of Kihei and north of Wailea on Maui, the snorkeling at the Kamaole Beach Park is popular with families. There are three distinct beaches here separated by rocks, which provide interesting habitat for marine life. Keep in mind that the afternoon winds tend to kickup the wave action. Also, there is limited parking available, so make sure to arrive early at Kamaole Beach Park for snorkeling.
The Kamaole Beaches snorkeling is located on South Kihei Road in Kihei. While snorkeling here, keep in mind that over the years there have been numerous shark attacks on snorkelers. This tends to occur when the water clarity is low and the conditions are turbid. The month of October sees a dramatic increase in the number of shark attacks every year. To reach the snorkeling on Maui by air, you will need to fly into Kahului Airport (OGG) which is located in the middle of the north coast of Maui. It is served by direct flights from the mainland US and also by inter-island flights from several other Hawaiian Islands by regional carriers. When planning a trip to the Hawaiian islands, be aware that the State Of Hawaii has banned all sunscreens that oxybenzone, which has been proven to kill coral reefs.
Overall, Kamaole Beach Park is the 9th most popular snorkel dive spot of all 21 snorkeling dives in Maui. Several of the better snorkeling spots are nearby Kamaole Beach Park including Molokini Crater, La Perouse Bay, Maluaka Beach Park, Kanahena Cove, Five Caves and Keawanaku Beach.
