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.

The Fairmont orchid adorns this beach. It therefore is much more busy than other beachs. The body surfing and boogie boarding is great here.

A smaller beach, but in a terrific spot on the west side of Maui that doesn't have big waves - perfect for swimming, playing or paddle boarding. Very pretty and good parking availability (which seems to be the biggest issue in getting to a Maui beach!). We didn't snorkel, but plan on returning to snorkel and hopefully see some sea... More

This beach is very nice. Soft sand and umbrellas available. The staff is friendly and they offer fresh pineapple periodically throughout the day. We loved relaxing here and playing in the surf!
