  • It is area beach which is fairly popular and you should arrive fairly early to get parking. You must be a fairly good swimmer for this area.  more »
  • We were in the section "Wailea Ekahi" - public beach which is not recorded here! A pity!-this is a really great beach. The length of the beaches of Wailea are already enorm-we found the beach ehr spontaneously and are simply driven the folding off road left around, but right a side street in where on many private lots with houses were... at the end (500meter) it is a dead end, parked there and and schwupp we were with your feet in the sand! He is also "Golden Beach" called because the sand is golden! Much to the recommend! We were on the stone wall!-has our food were cooler than usual among the plants "in the wall"... The waves were right great and it really made spend the day there fun. Is clean too! Showers and toilets are there as well! We could also see the bouncing whale in the distance great!

  • Not crowded at all. Our hotel provided chairs and umbrellas for us on the beach. The beach was so beautiful. We even strolled it at night and felt very comfortable.  more »

  • This is the beach behind the Grand Wailea. It is not very obvious, but there is public access and parking just past the Grand Wailea. Another option for access is to use the Grand Wailea valet parking. This can be validated if you spend more than $30 anywhere in the resort, or if you make a reservation for their luau. Spending this much is easy to do as there are quite a few shops, bars, restaurants, activities, etc. All of which are extensive. The beach itself is very nice. Right behind the beach is a beautiful walking/running path that connects several resorts to Wailea Ekahi village. An amazing place to take a jog with epic ocean views and then cool off in the ocean.
  • wonderful beach with mountains in the backdrop. soft cinnamon brown sand and plenty of gorgeous scenery.
  • Tons of turtles off the left side of the beach! Lost my cell phone there too! Aloha!
  • very nice beach for sunsets and snorkeling on calm mornings. we saw many turtles snorkeling here.
  • Loved this beach! Not too busy, great people, super clear water, great messing-around-in-the-water spot.
