Mokapu Beach and Ulua Beach offer tempting morsels of sand and sea among South Maui's vast sunny shoreline. The beaches share a parking lot, so arrive early to snag a spot. To the right is Mokapu Beach, the smaller and usually less crowded of the two. Here, you'll find crystalline water, a little peace, and a whole lot of sunshine. Venture left for Ulua Beach, a popular dive site as well as a great space for families, thanks to a few shady trees and fun gentle waves. The beaches also serve as an excellent starting-off point for a morning walk or jog. Wailea's shoreline footpath begins here and leads you south alongside upscale resorts, luxurious beaches, and a variety of flowering plants. Wake up and smell the plumerias.
