So clean and just a beautiful walk from the hotel itself. We played in the water and watched the same children that day. It was later learned that we could have rented snorkel equipment from the hotel as well as many other items be sure to ask about that.

This beach has clean sand, average to moderate size waves dependent on the weather and is convenient to Wailea resorts. There is no lifeguard on duty though which is disappointing as many resorts surround this beach which draws families with inexperienced young swimmers. For experienced swimmers though there are plenty of opportunities to snorkel out and view the plentiful fish... More

Average beach for Maui, there are much better on the island. The water is calmer than most beaches and the sand is kept clean, but drive around to the other beaches and EXPLORE!!

Waimea Beach - Maui, HI Is a beautiful area that offers swimming, kayaking, surfing, etc. The beach area is nice and the weather is usually quite comfortable. Bring your suntan lotion and beach towel and enjoy.

We loved this beach, but don't snorkel past 11am. We had great snorkeling in the morning with our 10 and 11 year old kids. But got swept up in some heavy current and the waves and wind kicked up while we were out. We had a hard (and panic-filled) time getting away from the rocks, and left with some scrapes... More

Beautiful beach. You can enjoy a sunset and swim here for hours! It is just outside the Grand Wailea and borders with the Marriott hotel. *It is never quiet....

By far the most beautiful beach I've visited thus far in my life. Snorkeling was amazing (octopi, lobsters, tons of fish) and the beach is so peaceful and easy to navigate.

This is a nice beach for lounging in the sun and playing in the waves but it can get crowded. It is a nice play for taking pictures just before sunset. We prefer other beaches in the area that are less crowded but this is a great beach to visit at least once!
