Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at Pu'u Olai Beach

Pu'u Olai Beach has an incredible rocky point to explore! With two beaches to choose from, you may begin diving from either. The hike to remote beach is a bit tiring but may be worth it for you naturists! Due to the open-water nature of this area, do not dive unless you are capable of high surf entry and exit. At the South End of Highway 31, bear right onto Wailea Iki. Continue to the T, turn left on Wailea Alanui. After 2.2 miles, turn right onto Makena Road. In 1.7 miles, you'll see the turn-off.

Two weeks ago this site was horrible. Today it was fantastic with super visibility. We had a large south swell which is normal now but it has died down the past two weeks to about 1 foot. Things have cleared up. The swim through cave just north of little beach had two very large white tips in them. One is very agitated as he has a large hook in it's mouth. I'm sure it will rust out eventually as he's still fat and moving well. We did see an eagle ray and maybe 20 turtles. The whales are gone and the rays are in full force. This is an easy boat dive, a not as easy shore dive. Lots of rocks and if the surf is up at all you'll pay. Wear farmer johns or a full suit if you have any surf at all.
