The Wailea Elua Village spans the entire length of Ulua Beach. The Ulua fish is the most prized shoreline game fish in Hawaii because of its quick flight and tough fight. The Ulua season generally runs from May to September, when local shoreline fisherman can be seen fighting for this most sought after catch, which can weigh up to 100 pounds.
Ulua Beach is known for its excellent snorkeling, especially in the calm morning hours, where one can view a colorful playground of goatfish, flounder, eels, octopi, Hawaiian green sea turtles, and the papio and ulua. A coral reef Naturalist from the Pacific Whale Foundation is on hand at Ulua Beach from 9:00am-noon Sundays-Thursdays to provide free information and material about the reef and frequently-spotted reef animals. In the afternoons and when the surf is up, it’s the most popular beach for the experienced local body surfers.
The Wailea Elua Village beachfront resort in Maui features beautifully appointed one-, two- and three-bedroom Maui rentals with spectacular ocean front or garden view condo suites on 24 acres of manicured lawns and gardens. Catering to an adult crowd where peace and relaxation are primary, there is easy access to the designer boutiques and upscale restaurants at the Shops at Wailea. A private entrance leads to Ulua Beach as well as the 1.5 mile Wailea Beach Walk, which wanders the coastline through stunning sandy beaches, points of interest, multi-million dollar seaside homes and the Maui beachfront rentals.
