  • View was fantastic. We are able to enjoy Sunset from the beach. Some night is better than other depends on how thick is the cloud. 
  • We stayed on the beach in Wailea the 2nd week of January. We have stayed in Kapalua and Kaanapali and I actually liked Wailea much better. There were days when the water was calm and then days when it...  more »
  • We are staying at the Wailea beach villas so having them do the beach set-up is invaluable. If you aren't staying at one of the resorts you will have to bring your own towel and be prepared to bake in...  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.
