This is a beautiful beach to sit at or play in. Young and old can play in this water. This is a great place to learn to bogie board or if you know how, it will keep you entertained. The sand is wonderful. Beautiful place to enjoy the sunset as our family did this year. We swam till sunset and... More

Close to Wailea...good shower and parking options...good place for beginner boogie boarding. My family felt safe as they learned how to boogie board and we had a very nice time. Was also nice to be close to our hotel with easy access, etc.

Very nice beach - not crowded, clean. Lots of sea life (urchins, fish, crabs, etc.) in the tidal pools in the rocky areas.

Three weeks in Maui on lots of beaches and this was our favourite in the west and south areas. (Big Beach was second.). Excellent, free parking; drive past the Fairmont and turn towards the ocean. Washrooms and showers on the100 m. walk in. Clean firm sand bottom with no drop off. Excellent boogie boarding. Not so great for snorkelling due... More

A ride with Maui Sailing Canoe is highly recommended from this hidden beach. There is a nice parking area with a clean bath house.

Polo beach is super easy to access! There is always more then enough parking, great shower and bath facilities and located in front of Kea Lani, so a great place to grab lunch or drink from the bar!

Don't tell too many people, but this is a great beach with ample parking. Waves are great for kids. It's a good location right next to the Fairmont.

Polo Beach has easy and plentiful parking and it's not a long walk to the beach so it's not a bear to carry all of your beach gear. We... More
