We recently stayed in the Wailea Beach area for one week. We discovered early that the Beach Path is a great way to go from our hotel to any of the other hotels or their restaurants while taking in scenic views. The path is paved, and it s about two persons wide. If you get thirsty or hungry, along the path you will find some of the restaurant "snack" or breakfast shacks. You also have beautiful landscaping and floral gardens, as well as marked plants, animal habitats, and markers for Hawaiian sacred and historical points of interest.

The path is busy pretty much anytime of day, however it has especially heavy traffic during the morning hours.

Tips: Take the path from one end to the other (Marriott to Fairmont hotels). Make sure you always carry one or two bottles of water and wear sunscreen and a hat. Bring your cell phone or camera for gorgeous views.

Scenic paved (all except the far North part by the Andaz Hotel) path which becomes quite crowded after sunrise. Starting at the wooden bridge at the Andaz and extends south to the Fairmont Kei Lani, the 1.5 mile each way path makes for an excellent walk. People are generally very courteous allowing runners to pass although certain areas such as Wailea Point become quite congested because the path is so narrow. I would try to run just before daybreak - before 6 AM to avoid the crowds. Many feral cats would line the path at sunrise awaiting food from neighbors which added another challenge.

This is a great walking path either for a morning walk/run or for a sunset/evening walk. There is not enough lighting at night so you may want to bring a flashlight or just use your phone light like we did. You walk past all 3 major hotels: Grand Wailea, Four Seasons and Fairmont Kea Lani. Also, you can see sea turtles and maybe even some dolphins if you're lucky in the morning hours. Beautiful Maui sunset views and it was a full moon when we took our evening walk so it was especially breathtaking. Also a nice alternative if you're staying at one of the three hotels to walk to different restaurants instead of take a cab or drive. Enjoy!

This is a great way to walk along the Wailea coast (and get a sneak peek into some of the fancy hotel pool areas!). We were staying in Kihei, but went to a luau at the Marriott & had to take this walking path to get there & it was so beautiful. The sun was just starting to set over the water and the different hotels had little pavilions set up for couples to have romantic sunset dinners with a water view. After the luau, we took the same walking path over to the Andaz for a drink at one of their bars. The walking path is not lit in between the hotels & can get fairly dark, so keep that in mind for nighttime strolls.

Paved path along the west side of Maui, will take you past beaches, resorts, homes. Fits 2 people side by side, so better to walk single file to accommodate people walking the opposite direction. I preferred to bring a torch after sunset as the lighting can be dim.

Walked the path today. Although it is paved (sidewalk) we found the path very narrow, heavily planted on each side and more conducive to single file walking. We enjoy walking hand in hand. The path was populated. Each time we saw someone coming or heard breathing behind us we would single file. The path has continuous elevation changes. If this would affect some it should be considered. It is impossible to exit the path at will. Exiting requires a designated "beach access" path. We entered at Polo Beach and exited at Wailea Beach Park. We chose to walk back to Polo Beach (our car) via the road/sidewalk. Wider, some shade here and there and we could walk together. If you want to see how the other half lives - walk here.

If you are interested in a beautiful walk along the ocean’s edge, and taking in some excellent people watching, then I’d recommend the Wailea Beach Path.
You can choose to walk a segment or the entire length. It seems a range of people, from hotel guests, to neighbourhood residents use the path to walk, run, and/or take their dog out for exercise.
Beautiful hotels stretch along the path, and there are activities (surfing, yoga, etc) going on, all along the way. A great way to walk off some of the fabulous food you’ll be enjoying in Maui!

This is a paved walking path starting/ending just past the Fairmont Kea Lani for approximately 2 miles and stretches beyond the Andaz. The walking path is between hotels and private residences on one side and the ocean on the other. There are multiple areas along the way to get down to the beach if you want to walk along the ocean. It can get pretty crowded in the morning with walkers and runners so you just need to be aware. Every one is really polite though and it is very safe and an easy walk.

I did this little walk several times during our stay. It was roughly 2 each way. Water is available at the Grand Wailea right on the path. Beautiful ocean views and great people watching. Go early, it gets busy about 8-9 in the morning!

Yes, it fronts the large resorts and can get you from a to b, but it is just too narrow. You can’t walk side by side, and there are very few benches to rest on and take in the views. Between runners and groups I didn’t love this walk at all, not like the Kannapali path at all.
