The main beach off the Grand Walea

Nice for swimming, sandy bottom, wonderful sand, not overly busy, seats offered ($), showers for rinsing right across the beach path on the hotel grounds

The color of the water is mesmerizing. All you want to do is walk along and stare at it. We finally jumped in and the sand is very soft like flour. Send an hour or day just unwinding and seeing.

The beaches are very clean, white sand! Easy for walking and running! Great for taking some wine and cheese (prepared for you by the chef through the concierge or restaurant). Sunsets area dreamy!

Softest sand Ive experienced! There were chairs and umbrella's available to rent. The water was great for swimming. Bathrooms and showers to rinse off were available. Had the intention of beach hopping but ended up staying here all day!

Great and clean beach with lots of waterspouts available, but you only really need a body board. Exceptional!

Wailea beach being situated on the western shore and sort of "tucked in" and protected from most of the "normal" winds provides some of the most gentle waves for enjoying a relaxing swim. No big surf for body boarding or surfing or anything of the like (typically). The sand is very clean with no rocks or shells and the slope... More

Great quiet beach for all. We swam with green turtles all but 30 feet from the shore! I highly recommend this beach to anyone looking for a mellow sun worshiping day. ;)
