“Beautiful Wailea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

This beach is one of our favorite on Maui. With great snorkeling on the left side (around the rocks), small surf and a wide, clean beach, it is perfect for just about everyone.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2012

Like walking on powdered sugar. The surf is just right for family fun in the water.

“One of the better South Maui beaches”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2012

Better than Polo Beach next door, but not as good as Big Beach. Great location as you can go for lunch and drinks at the Grand Wailea resort beside it.

“wailea beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

First of all, it is great for kids and the sand is very soft and the ocean is calm. It doesn't have the best snorkeling, though.

“Beautiful path along some gorgeous hotels!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2012

Wailea beach is beautiful, but because of so many hotels in the area, the beach is crowded.
