  • Warm cinnamon coloured sand. Excellent quality, soft and refreshing. Water beautiful colours and temperature. Volcanic outcroppings make for little tide pools whereupon you can see ocean life, such a ...  more »
  • Great typical maui beach, not super crowded and a fantastic soft bottom that extends from shore quite a distance 
  • Such a beautiful beach. One of my favourites on Maui. There are a lot of beautiful beaches, make sure you retry them all.

  • 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.
