“Busy, gorgeous beach below Grand Wailea.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Had to get to the beach early to get a hotel umbrella and a lounge chair but it was busy spring break season. Sandy beach is great. Easy to swim without big surf. Go to Fleming beach if you want great boogie boarding.

“In a word "excellent"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

Beaches are public if your not staying at a place on the ocean dont be intimidated by the resorts lounge chairs, you have just as much right to enjoy a world class beach

“Hands down one of the nicest beaches I have ever been to”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2012

OK. It's Maui so that does give this beach a head start but rather than over commercialize it like Waikiki, this place is peaceful and beautiful. The waves are gentle, the view is tops and the sun is SO nice. Stay somewhere cheap and drive to the beach or spring for a nice hotel on the beach. I recommend the Waldorf Astoria Grand Wailea (see my review).
