Polo Beach is a beautiful and very quiet beach. Although much smaller in size compared to other beaches up the coast, its sandy beach and close-by rock formation offer a stunning view. The nearby free, public parking is a plus. However, we did take note of the nearby flag warning for jelly fish. Overall, Polo Beach is recommended for its... More

Supposedly Wailea Point which marks the right side of this beach is one of the Maui "turtle towns" and it's a stop for several snorkey boats, but never saw a turtle here. However, that didn't stop us from enjoying light waves and perfect water temps on a sandy bottom. Fairmont is on this property...we were lucky enough to call this... More

We loved our stay at the Fairmont Kea Lani on Polo beach. It was a bit rough while we were staying there so not the best time for snorkeling as the waves were throwing san everywhere and decreased visibility. It was perfect however for body surfing! What fun. And gorgeous sunsets for sure... But where in Maui are the sunsets... More

Beautiful sunsets, excellent white sand beach. Good snorkeling on the reef. Whales cruise by during season. Saw a pod of about a hundred dolphins. Amazing.

This is a great beach for families. It is small beach in a little cove. The waves are not too big, especially in the morning, and there is little undertow. There are tidal pools and snorkeling on both ends of the beach. We were lucky to see sea turtles and on one occasion dolphins.

This is not the pick of Wailea's beach litter. It's a bit rocky and doesn't stand out for other reasons. The big deal here is the large parking lot for visitors. It's close to the ocean and gives people easy access to the south end of the Wailea Boardwalk. Turn right.

One of the quieter beaches. Fairly good swimming but best for just frolicking in the water. Some parking available.
