Beautiful Wailea Beachwalk
Nov 2021 • Couples
Amazing beachwalk along beautiful Wailea coastline. Turtles, dolphins and whales abound in November. Great way to get 10K steps in at the start of the day each morning!

Spectacular, clean,beautiful!
Oct 2021 • Couples
We took a long walk along this famous “ Wailea Walk” one evening .. it was just too good!
We were staying at the magnificent Wailea Ekahi Village and got access through there to the beach ; although a lot of the beach is behind hotels and condos , it can be accessed fro the south end via Makena .
It a spectacular beach, soft sand, crystal clear water for swimming , and spewn with lava rocks in between .. just lovely!

Very Nice Beach
Sep 2021 • Couples
Very nice beach. There were pretty big waves but once toy swam out a little bit to get past them the water was calm. A sea turtle swam within feet of us so that was very cool. There is a bar where you can get adult beverages, and chairs you can rent if you don't want to lay directly on the sand. There were people renting paddle boards and boats so there are a ton of water activities available.

Beautiful water falls but you view it from behind a guard rail on the side of the road.
Sep 2021 • Couples
Wailea Falls. It’s a beautiful falls…a “5” for sure, but I only give it a 4 star rating because you can’t hike down to the base and enjoy it. You literally pull up to a parking spot and look over a guard rail and see it for about 10 minutes, take a selfie and leave. The area is not even open for a picnic lunch. So it’s a must do view, but you won’t stay here long.

Beautiful beach, light crowds (due to Covid)
Sep 2021
This is a beautiful beach area. All Hawaiian beaches are open to the public, even if right in front of a hotel. There are good public parking areas in between the resort hotels, and public restrooms near the beach. When turning off the main road into the parking access, you will know pretty quickly if you are on hotel grounds, just go back and try the next side road. In Sept 2021, the crowds are very light, no problem with parking at the big, tree covered lot near Four Seasons, no problem setting up two beach umbrellas. There is a smaller lot on the other side of Four Seasons, that one fills up, so if you don't get a space there just keep going and try another lot. Beachgoers were courteous tourists, I didn't see any drunk college kids, but we visited in September. Sand is white and soft, ocean is very swimmable.

Scenic Beach walk
Aug 2021
Beautiful views all day. Easy to walk along the beach with a path between beachfronts. It was more crowded than I usually like--lots of activity with people walking, jogging, or otherwise enjoying the beautiful views, but worth a visit.

Best beach in Wailea
Aug 2021 • Family
This is by far the best beach in the Wailea area in terms of sand quality and water. It’s very beautiful but can get a little crowded. It is surrounded by hotels with beach chair service. Since it’s a small beach it’s gets pretty crowded. Even if you stay at one of the hotels you still may not be able to get a seat. It is especially beautiful since it faces sunset.

Soft sand... great little bay
Jul 2021
Great beach - if you are staying in one of the hotels its amazing, chair with umbrella by the beach ... if you are visiting for the day might be hard to find decent spot but still worth it. You can watch sea turtles by just getting a mask

Pristine beautiful beach
Jul 2021
We recently spent a week in Maui, and most of the time we were in Wailea near the beach. We've been to many beaches in the Caribbean and the US, and this is one of the best. The water is clear, and there are no rocks or seaweed. We never saw any jellyfish nor other sea creatures.

The sand is also extremely clean; there is no trash and you don't see people with pets as you do on other beaches. I was not bothered by any insects or crustaceans. It is just a short walk to your hotel from the beach. Restrooms are slightly off the beach as are showers.

There are no lifeguards, and some of the resorts have limited, free, beach chairs.
