Limit search to Wailea.

Great snorkeling at Ulua Beach Park, but it's also good at other spots, including the rock outcropping at the Mana Kai.
Nature is awesome.
#2 of 16 Nature & Parks in Wailea
We stayed at the Andaz - great hotel, perfect location, and you can go for long beach walks and discover nature, or bars.
A state park at the tip of wailea is beautiful and great place to see whales during whale season, bring binoculars for this

For us, this path begins in the Kehei direction (Keawapu Beach park), quite a bit before the Grand Wailea, and terminates at the parking lot and restroom facilities at the end of the walk.
You can park for free at one of the beach access points (Polo, Wailea, etc), just be sure to get there early, or do your walk in the evening when the lots start to empty out a bit.

Yeah you have to park up the hill and its a little bit of a walk but there is a great lawn grassy area, nice bathrooms and showers and just enter the surf and head south to the rocks for tons of turtles!
We drove along the coastal road and turned off at every road toward the beach and discovered several beaches including Makena State Park which extends a long distance along the shores.

Get there either from the beach or d'ornement Kalahana drive from Wailea Alanui drive, free parking just above the park, restrooms and great showers for snorkler or dive-gear rinsing, exquisite family beach & reef.
This is the perfect beach for families, with shade, soft sand, amazing snorkelling reef, shower and bathroom facilities and a decent size car park.

The most amazing diving and snorkeling to be had in this pristine marine environment at Makena State park, well worth a visit.
Gorgeous park though with lots of sand and a number of shady areas as well.

The Makena Landing park is a busy hub for snorkellers, kayakers, scuba enthusiasts and swimmers.
You can park along the road or at the Park.

This hidden gem is great for anyone who is free thinking and wants to get in touch with the sun, beach, and nature.
It’s easy to find — just take the main road through the Wailea resort area, past The Four Seasons and The Fairmont, until you come to the Makena Beach park.

Kamaole Beach Park 3 Kihei 2.6 km away
#2 of 10 Nature & Parks in Kihei
In my opinion "Kam 3" Beach Park is the best in South Kihei ... swimming, snorkelling, beachcombing, shady areas; access to Eddie Pu hiking trail which connects to beach walking, all the way to Wailea .......
I stood next to a humongous one sunning off the nature trail leading south from this beach (which is a great walking trail if you're here), and saw them in the surf eating off the rocks on the south side of the be...

We prefer to park in the small public lot provided by Makena Surf on the south end of the beach if we can get a spot.

The Entrance is very easy to miss, when you are driving down Makena Road you will see the road widen in one spot and there is room to park 4 cars along a rock wall.
Driving towards La Perouse, stop and park anywhere on the road, by the tall rock wall.

This is a Nature Reserve and has some of the best snorkelling on the island but the fish bring in the Tiger Sharks and they sometimes close the area - watch the signs.

However, if you cross the rocks near the parking lot to the South of Cove Park, you'll find a whole other world with fantastic scenery and lava reach out to the sea.
