Whatever you like to do, the beach here was great! There is a good sized parking lot for beach access. The grounds and restrooms were spotless as the crew works hard to preserve it. Do your part by not entering the ocean with regular suntan...More

Arrive early (8 to 9 am), as this beach is shared by several timeshares and resorts. Best time to go is in the late fall. Very good snorkeling in south Wailea and we discovered turtles, colorful fish and coral. Water is very clear and easy...More

Wide sandy beach with calm, warm, clear blue water. Lots of fish to see near the rocks. Two issues: Parking is limited so come early and beach is used by several hotels and they set up chaise lounges in best spots, hogging the waterfront.

Really clean and great snorkeling, especially near the north side of Wailea Marriott by the rocks. This is a public beach, but shares with Wailea Marriott, Grand Wailea, and Four Seasons. Hotels have options to rent equipment or chairs. Tend to be crowded, there are...More

The beach is wonderfully groomed and beautiful views. Parking is very poor unless you are at a resort. Not easily walkable unless staying on a resort that backs onto the beach. Cabanas and chairs reserved for hotel guests and attendants renting them out are rude....More

Primarily for the guests of the hotels that line the shore. This keeps the crowds under control and the beach clean. You can rent water sports from any hotel kiosk as well as buy food and beverages. Very popular is the paved 3+ mile path...More
