“One of Maui's best beaches”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

We visited a few beaches around Maui during our trip and Wailea Beach was the pick of them. Not overly crowded, well sheltered from the wind, great sunset location and some surf without being too rough. Parking available nearby with plenty of restaurants and cafes as well.

“Best sand in Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

It is hard to know what is better about the Four Seasons - the incredible hotel / pools / cabanas, or the beautiful beach on which it is situated. The sand has the consistency of flour, and the Four Seasons staff provide towels and chairs for their guests. I love this beach! This is one of the best places to watch the sunset in Maui.

The surf is not too strong, and many people are playing in the water.

“Beach with a beautiful view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

Our Hotel Wailea has umbrellas and lounge chairs for its patrons and it was just a short drive down the hill from our place. We took the grandkids there 5 days of our stay - we all went boogie boarding on boards purchased at the Whalers General Store at Wailea Shops...it was the most fun in the gentle waves of this beach. We had access to the bar and restrooms at the Grand Wailea, which was convenient. Great beach for sun and surf!

“One of the best beaches on Maui!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014

Like sunsets? Watch them from here! The beach is gorgeous, but a little crowded since there are a few hotels/condos that share it.
