We had a blast stand up paddle boarding and kayaking here. You are also able to rent chairs and umbrellas. Lots of fun.

The good: Beautiful sand beach, clear water, easy access from the hotels or parking lots. Nice paved walking trail. Shower and rest rooms.

Try "Big Beach" More room... More

It is a good beach if you are staying in one of the Wailea resorts. We came down from Kihei and saw that the whole beach was occupied by beach umbrellas/chairs from nearby resorts. We felt out of place unlike other beaches in Maui.

Great beach, soft white sand and clear blue water. You can take an outrigger ride from the beach and view sea turtles and other sea life.

We rented kayaks and paddled around for an hour in the early morning. The water was so clear that we could easily make out the bottom of the ocean.
