“Tell Milton, we found his paradise”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

Absolute paradise. We just returned from a week at the Grand Wailea which sits smack on Wailea Beach. Absolutely perfect. The water was warm and calm, the sand was clean and the scenery was perfect. Fantastic spot for whale watching. One afternoon it was cloudy with a few rain drops and that seemed to be the best time to watch the whales as they were extremely active.

“Excellent Beach & Area”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

If I could choose any location on Maui to vacation, Wailea wins every time. The beach is sometimes crowded, but always clean and has a great view of the Molokini Crater. There is a long, scenic walkway winding through resorts and condo properties along Wailea Beach. Lots of joggers and walkers in the morning and evening. Perfect place to whale watch and to take romantic walks any time of day.

“Soo many whales”
Reviewed February 11, 2014

I personally think this is the best spot on maui to whale watch. Every night you will see a 100,000 lbs whale break the water. I believe its the scout whale for next years mating season that does this but whoever it is makes a big splash.

“One of the BEST beaches on Maui!”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

We love it - especially the beach walk along the front of the hotels! Don'y mss this! Beaches are not crowded. Hotels and beach restaurants and bars accommodating. Take the time and visit Wailea beach.
