We were at the Wailea Beach in front of the Grand Wailea, and it was NOT relaxing - probably 50 stand-up paddle boarders in mornings, and then maybe groups of 75 kayakers coming through. Felt more like a freeway than a beach.

This was a favorite family beach for us. Maui is a busy island and parking can be an issue at beaches. If we arrived early, no problem, but if we left to go try another beach, there was no parking left. We like that there was public restrooms available, public showers to rinse off, and it was close to many... More

This is a beautiful beach steps from the major resorts. It is also one of the busiest beaches in the area for that same reason. If you like people watching it is a great place and still has plenty of room for everyone. If you are looking for something more secluded during the day choose a beach further south. This... More

The beach is super clean and beautiful, perfect for spending a day of lazing at the beach! The waves are great for fun things like body boarding or just swimming! The ocean is great for canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddling etc which makes it for a fun spot! If you go a little into the waters on a canoe or... More

Busy for parking. So go early, but it is a lovely spot for a swim. The ocean is calmer in certain spots and the morning is the calmest... Winds and waves pick up around 11:30. Did not snorkel here. Other beaches for snorkeling.

Best beach to "bob" in the water and just watch the day come to an end! Chairs and umbrellas are provided and the sand is like sugar.

We didn't spend much time here but it was a beautiful view! With so much to do in Maui, its just hard to stay at one beach for long.

Great beach - softest sand I have ever encountered. Water is clear, no shells or rocks under your feet.
