Nice beach at the KeaLani

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

My favorite part is the left side of the beach in front of the Polo Condos. We saw turtles and it was not crowded!

We went here to visit one evening and bought it was lovely. Came back the next day and it was packed! Between the hotel guests in the lounge chairs and the kids playing on the beach it was super crowded. The beach front isn't very wide so no place to put your towels if you want to sit on dry...

We stayed at the Polo Beach Club, with this beach as the backdrop. The beach was never very crowded and provided just enough wave height for boogie boarding, body surfing, or just frolicking. Although there are many beaches on Maui that provide more secluded natural settings, this one was directly adjacent to our resort and provided safe enough water for... More

Polo Beach is located in front of the Fairmont Kea Lani Hotel. An outrigger rental is one of the highlights of this beautiful beach. Guests from the hotel use this Beach but it is available to the public. Restrooms are available. The sand is not as deep as beaches further to the north but the views are amazing.

Nice little beach area to get away from the crowds. Lovely place to read, nap, or just sit back and soak up the beautiful views!

Almost all the beaches in Maui are amazing and although small, this one has some charm. Check it out.

Polo beach is right next to Wailea beach. The Disneyland Hotel(aka Grand Wailea) is on wailea beach and due to it's overcrowding wailea beach is just too crowded. Polo beach has few visitors who are not staying at the Fairmont, so it is quieter and calmer and also much better access to the reef which is ~150 feet away.
