Wonderful beach

We stayed in the Wailea Beach Villas and the beach was wonderful. In a cove with gorgeous scenery and fairly clam earn water. Full of sea life.

This is a great beach if you want to pack a picnic lunch and drinks and chill for the afternoon. The surf is low and is perfect for swimming and snorkeling. I go to this beach every year, and it is quite peaceful! There are beach chair rentals as an option if needed.

There is limited sand along this coast and the beach provides a short stretch of sand. There are some rocky areas and the swimming area is small. There are reasonable facilities at the beach

So beautiful to walk around this beach near the resort. Excellent views and great areas to get into the water and relax. We stay here annually and it always amazes!

Very nice beach, the surf was minor, enough to play in without being hurt, even for small kids. The sand is very fine and soft. Showers and restrooms as you access the beach.

Beautifully clean soft sand beach with warm waters lined by 5 star hotels and a public walking path that looks out onto the islands of Molokai and Lanai. All beaches in Hawaii are public. Enjoy!

I've been wanted to learn to paddle board for years and finally got the courage up to try on Wailea Beach. The water was warm, clear and calm... just perfect for my first time paddle boarding! I also enjoyed the beach walk that has the resorts on one side and the Beach on the other.

We stayed at the Grand Wailea. When I booked our vacation I wasn't sure what the beach would be like. I've stayed in Kaanapali years ago and had a wonderful time. This beach was better, in our opinion. The sand was so fine and the water so calm. If you want to surf, this isn't the beach for you. But... More

Love this little beach. It's nice to have a swim here as its not as rough in that bay. And although the beaches are all public in Maui, this one seems quite private to the few hotels along this stretch of beach. Lots of wedding pics happening at sunset, which is beautiful to watch.
