“Surprisingly good snorkeling”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2013

Nice coral gardens right off the beach, a smattering of fish and quite a few honu. Spectacular beach with an amazing view.

“Lovely”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

It's a lovely beach, well maintained and kept clean. Felt safe thought wouldn't be walking around in the middle of the night on own.

“Shark attacks”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2013

We were out of the water 2 days of 7 due to a shark attack at a beach close by. If you're planning a beach vacation in Wailea, you should google 'Wailea shark attack' and read up on the situation - the locals seem to have some concern about an upward trend in incidents.

“Nice uncrowded beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2013

Even though this beach is situated at the foot of the Grand Wailea and the Marriott, it remains un-crowded and very nice to hang out at. The beach is extremely clean and well kept. You can snorkel off the left end on some really nice reefs. It is really easy snorkeling for the entire family.
