This was by far the nicest beach we visited while in Maui. It was not overcrowded, it was clean, and the waves were perfect for splashing in. There were facilities nearby and the people here were fantastic. I recommend making your way here if you are looking to do some swimming and relaxing.

A beach in the perfect spot. Not crowded at all and not filled with tourists. This beach is right in front of the Polo Beach Club which is a wonderful and quiet place to stay.

This beach is small, almost feels like a private beach. Has showers, toilets, ample off-street parking and even shade trees on the beach.

Parking is a plenty with lots of BBQ stands to enjoy a nice beach day. Showers and bathrooms are there. Next to the hotel where you can fill your water bottle or order a drink if needed. This is a very nice beach, located at the end of the waterfront path which is great for a run/walk. There are a... More

Great beach and not that crowded. Surrounded by beautiful homes. Some rocks, good snorkeling. Love to come and sit and just relax at the beach.

Great beach. Easy to find. Free parking nearby. Very warm and sunny part of the island. This small beach sits right in front of the Fairmont Kea Lani hotel. You can rent umbrellas and chairs from them (call ahead to check), and you can also go inside to get snacks from their deli. From the beach, you can see the... More

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.
