A nice long stretch of beautiful sandy beach, and close to Keihei also. In addition, it has two parking lots (one at either end of the beach), so it's usually fairly easy to get a spot to park. Also liked the fact that the Five...More
This beach is beautiful! Not that the others aren't (EVERY beach on Maui is beautiful), but this beach has quite a bit of parking, a nice outdoor shower, a place to rental paddle boards, snorkel gear, etc. and 2 places to eat (both expensive, but...More
Keawakapu beach goes on for over a mile in Wailea/Kihei region of Maui and is one of our long time favourite beaches. The only thing missing was a fawcet to wash the sand off your feet near Five Palms restaurant and Sarento's on the beach.
Best water to paddleboard you can see the fish swim by as you go around Black Rock. In the mornings the water is really awesome to enjoy. With Whalers Village right there you can refresh after the beach really easy.
My husband and I used to live on Maui and this is one of our favorite beaches. It is beautiful, a very quiet beach. It has a shower to rinse off after a swim. We always feel as if we are on a private beach...More
For 9 days with my family that included 5 kids 13 and under. The resort is on Keawakapu Beach which is my favorite beach on Maui. Long and wide with plenty of room for lounging sunning and walking. The swimming is safe but of course...More
Keawakapu Beach is a nice beach, at the far end of Kihei on the border of Wailea. Good snorkeling and reef southside in front of 5 Palms restaurant. Next door is Sarento's which are two of the three water front restaurants in Kihei. You can...More

There are three parking lots at Keawakapu, so get the car. In general, you need a car on Maui. Things are spread out although nothing is that far of a drive.

Beaches: You can search beaches online in your area (rent some cars if you intend to see beaches that are beyond walking distance). Some are better for kids, others for snorkeling. You can find more remote beaches and places in Hawaii. This beach that I reviewed is not the most heavily or least attended beach, but there is great scenery and photography opps and kids are making sand castles...I recommend at sundown.
Here is one thing I did off the beaten path and we only saw 5 locals. Waihou Spring Trail: Pretty drive up the mountain, easy trail through an experimental pine forest, then a more challenging trek (not for the toddlers!) to down to a rocky basin with a small waterfall and network of tunnels. Very neat and private. You can do it in two or 3 hours plus drive time and not take all day. There are no tours here. it is more of a local attraction.If you are close, it is a neat little surprise and not what you would expect to see (a pine forest?) in Hawaii.

Wailea is stunning, high end accommodations and all the high end hotels are found along this shoreline. The newest hotel is the Andaz, cannot comment because I have not stayed. We have stayed at the Fairmont Orchid which is older but has all suite rooms, meaning separate bedroom and living space. The price on the rooms depend on location but given the sun sets at 6 and you spend most of your time outdoors I have never paid up for views. If you are a President club member of Fairmont you probably have upgrades to higher class of room. Fairmont also offers bungalows right near the beach. I think they come in 2 and 3 bedrooms. They have their own private plunge pools and I think you can get other services. I have never stayed in one but they are popular. Out of the Grand Wailea, Four Seasons and Fairmont I would pick the Fairmont. Two condo complexes are found on either side. The Wailea Point condos and the Polo Beach Club. I would put both around 20 plus years in age. The Wailea Point condos are expensive but you have many amenities. The Polo Beach condos are right on Polo Beach but do not have as many amenities. If you go further down, there is Makena Beach and you can also find many vacation rentals there. Kihei is cheaper and more crowded but it is close to shopping and restaurants. There is so much to chose from you need to set a price range and go from there. I prefer this side of the island but the west side offers great options as well. I would also check out rentals in Paia. Hope that helps.
