Uncrowded, unparalleled view of the Pacific and a couple of the islands. Great place to enjoy the breeze and even take a nap. The Grand Wailea Resort provides chairs, umbrellas, and towels and the staff is super nice. A great way to get totally spoiled and relaxed.

Wailea beach has plenty of space and access to public areas! The beach and the facilities were very clean and well maintained. There is also a beautiful coastal walk along the beach.

Beautiful walking trail in front of all of the high end resorts, right along the water. The beach has excellent snorkeling, with tons of wildlife, including turtles! Also perfect for outrigger canoe trip, stand up paddle boarding, and kite surfing when the wind is high. You will not be disappointed.

Lots of beach to relax. Nice white fine sand here. Waves break about 30' out. Sheltered view giving you a little less wind than other places.

Everywhere you go on this beach there are a lot of people due to the concentration of hotels, but it's great if you have kids and want the convenience of services close by.

We got a free ride from our hotel to the beach. It is a great beach for family and children! We enjoyed our evening on the beach until the sunset. We even flew a kite that was so much fun for the kids.

Great stretch of beach in Wailea. Beautiful views, soft sand and gentle surf. The location is very convenient to all of the resorts in the area.

If you can get over the hundreds of resort beach umbrellas from the three resorts which feed into the beach... it was an otherwise awesome white-sandy beach my wife and I enjoyed multiple times during our stay. While rumor has it the snorkeling isn't great, we thought there was an awesome display of marine life down and around the rocky... More
