If you do not mind a resort vibe along with the crowd that goes with it, this might just be a good location to visit for you. Named after the goddess of canoe makers, Wailea means "the water of lea". The beach is wide with perfect sand and an inviting ocean. Kaho'olawe, Lanai and Molokini are viewed from here and during winter season it is very common to see whales.
Snorkeling is good around the rocky outcroppings when the ocean is calm with nicely formed little waves and the ever gentle slopes, all the body surfing activities, and of course, the boogie boarding.
