Love this beach. The Fairmont occupies the right side of the beach which is very busy and to the left is a small beach that is great in the afternoon because it seems to be shielded from the afternoon trade winds. Tons of parking, showers and washroom facilities.

Extremely picturesque and not extremely busy. Adjacent to the Fairmont Kea Lani hotel. Can get rough. Watch out for the underwater rocks.

Polo beach is fairly small and tends to fill up quickly with either families or guests from the Fairmont. When we went there, there were excellent boogie boarding waves but the snorkelling was just OK as the water was quite murky.

Paradise. Clean beautiful beach with shade freezes along the back fence of the horse farm. A nice inlet area to swim. Saw a couple of sea turtles each day entering the beach from the path where the horses were grazing. An idyllic spot with nice friendly locals.

The day we were here body boarding was a popular activity. Come in the morning to get a good spot to watch the action and a place to park in the small lot. Located on a nice paved beach trail. This beach has clean bathrooms and an outdoor shower to rinse off.

the beach is smaller but it has a lot to offer - the snorkeling, beach area and path are very nice I would not go out of my way to visit this beach, but if in the area it is well worth a day visit

There is a paved walking path that goes from Olnu beach to Polo beach along the coast line. The walk itself is beautiful (about 4km each way), you get to pass all the fancy hotel resorts and see the beautiful coastline with a relaxing stroll. No major hills, also good to take a jog

You have to get here early to find a place to park (on street). But what a sweet beach. We discovered it almost by accident during an early morning walk. Nice sand, bounded by rocky outcrops and shaded by palm trees. Our new favorite beach near Wailea!

I was told the canoe ride was booked well into 19th and only one person can be booked. Everyday whenever we checked the canoe rides, most of the time there were openings.
