It's a lovely beach, well maintained and kept clean. Felt safe thought wouldn't be walking around in the middle of the night on own.
We were out of the water 2 days of 7 due to a shark attack at a beach close by. If you're planning a beach vacation in Wailea, you should google 'Wailea shark attack' and read up on the situation - the locals seem to have some concern about an upward trend in incidents.
Even though this beach is situated at the foot of the Grand Wailea and the Marriott, it remains un-crowded and very nice to hang out at. The beach is extremely clean and well kept. You can snorkel off the left end on some really nice reefs. It is really easy snorkeling for the entire family.
Great beach, nice sand and relatively quiet. Great snorkelling right off the beach with lots of fish and turtles. Excellent for sunsets and there is a short path that runs alongside the beach between the major hotels.
Wailea beach has a 1.4 mile concrete beach front pathway running between the hotels and the beach itself. The width varies from 4 to 6 feet wide. Very popular with pedestrians and joggers. Dogs, skaters, rollerbladers, and bicyclists prohibited. It starts from the public access roadway to the beach just north of the Wailea Elua Village. It stretches 1.4 miles... More
This beach is long, with nice sand, allowing for great walks. The surrounding hotels (Grand Wailea, Marriott, Four Seasons) are beautiful & the Shops at Wailea convenient when you need a break. The surf is gentle & enticing. It's a bit of a drive if you aren't staying in Kihei or Wailea but worth a visit at least once!
What we love the most about this beach area is that there is ample room, and the ocean has a smooth sandy floor. How often are you in the ocean and step on rocks, or debris, or slimy substances? Not here. Sand bottoms for a long way out into the ocean. No need for water shoes in this beach! LOVED... More
