  • Most days the rollers are moderate, great sand, clean, good access to snorkeling, kayaks and standup boards, and Hawaiian canoe rides. Towels & umbrellas furnished by Fairmont.  more »
  • Wailea Beach is very clean, nice sand, and has a great walking path. There is free parking available, but get there early as the parking area fills up quickly. The walking path is paved and goes along...  more »
  • Very pretty beach, somewhat private, waves usually mild. Great for early morning or evening walks. Don't expect to find any seashells.  more »

  • This is the private beach that was next to our resort. They provided free chairs and towels. Since it's right next to the hotel, they keep it super clean. The water was nice and the waves are not too crazy.
  • If you’re not staying at one of the two huge hotels right here on this beach, get here early to get one of the few parking spots, pack your chairs, umbrellas, and lunch and spend the day in paradise for free. Yes, parking is free. But it does fill up. And the views are incredible, the water is perfect for frolicking, and the snorkeling is perfect. This is one of those classic beaches in Hawaii that feels like heaven.
  • Nice sheltered Beach located at the back of the Grand Wailea Hotel. The hotel offers lounges to hotel guests only. Locals can use the beach but cannot use the hotel amenities.
  • Amazing Beach! Really clean, parking available and most importantly a place to wash and change after beach! Highly recommend when you are in Maui!
  • This is a great beach with beautiful views and plenty of sand to stretch out on. To get there you'll need to arrive at the right time as there aren't too many parking spots. Granted, there are more spots than, say Baby Beach but still, it's limited. After parking you'll have to walk quite a ways down the hill to arrive at the beach. One nice aspect is how close the beach is to the hotels. You can easily slip in for lunch or a snack. It does tend to get windy on this beach so keep your items locked down.
