Just off the southern coastline, stop at beaches such as Keawakapu in Kihei, Ulua and Polo Beach in Wailea, as well as Maluaka Beach just south of Makena Landing to see some of the best turtles up close. In West Maui, you can usually spot sea turtles in Kaanapali when snorkeling by Puu Kekaa, as well the point between Napili Bay and Honokeana Cove. During summer months when the surf is calm, Kapalua Bay and Honolua Bay are popular sea turtle hot spots as well.
