if you go during busy season this place is a zoo. beautiful waters and surroundings though. the further toward the 4 seasons you go, the less crowded it'll be

Love this stretch of beach, such great views and beautiful water. The wind picks up in the afternoon, but bright and early it's the place to be.

Lovely beach near all the resorts. Good snorkeling and lots of turtles, Finding parking can be a challenge. Come in the morning to avoid the afternoon wind that mucks up the snorkeling. Plenty of public restrooms.

A beautiful Hawaiian beach! Not huge, but plenty of space for tourists to spread out and get some sun.

One of the loveliest beaches in South Maui! Great for swimmers, sunbathers, families, boogie boarders. Not much shade but beautiful, clean sand and clear lovely warm water.

Great beach. We stay on Wailea Beach and love spending days here playing in the waves. Even if you aren't staying at the Grand Wailea, buy a mai tai or Category 5 (strong!) and enjoy it on the beach. Just a lovely beach in the heart of Wailea.

Primarily beach for the Grand Wailea resort. Brown, not white sand. No rocks or shells so good for bare feet. Fairly strong waves. Good for novice or children boogie boarders.

Beach is flanked by resort hotels, but does have public access. Very nice, wide beach -- with tons of room to stretch out. Waves not too high -- so can easily enjoy the water and paddleboarding, etc
