We have really enjoyed our visits to Wailea Beach. Although not a huge beach there was lots of room to sit and enjoy the sand, sun, and surf with space around us. A nice family oriented beach. We snorkelled to the left of the beach one day and at one point found ourselves in the company of three relaxed sea... More

The water was crystal clear and the weather was amazing. One of my favorite beaches ever. I enjoyed walking the path between hotels.

It's a nice beach right along the path that follows the coast line. Clean, but not a ton else to do there. I'd go back because it was near our hotel, but I preferred Makena state park

Water is warm and refreshing after a nice day of driving or biking or whatever your doing outside. Hotels are all amazing. Definitely going to be one of my... More

Saw whales from beach at Ka'anapali. Beaches much more crowded with people....lined up hotel umbrellas so it was difficult to get a spot for a towel on the public beach in front of Grand Wailea.

Nice sand beach with lots to do, including snorkeling, spear fishing, paddle boarding, kayaking, swimming, wading, walking and sunbathing. The beach is not very big, however it was very clean and not crowded. We could see whales in the ocean from the beach. The wave action was too strong for very young children, but fine for older kids and adults.... More

Our first time at this beach and we wondered how good the snorkeling would be. Saw just about everything but shark. Swam with turtles. 2 kind of eels. Puffers, lots of humhum. Just great spot.
