  • Header says it all, I guess I'd add that if you have teen kids who want to boogie board, then is head north to Kapalua's DT Fleming beach which is gorgeous, has less people and awesome waves.  more »
  • This is a great beach! Not a lot of rocks underneath to cut your feet. The sand is nice. The waves are awesome. It's probably a little rough for very small kids but for kids perhaps eight and up they ...  more »
  • White sand and good waves. Really nice for a day or a week on the beach. Water is great and feels nice in the hot weather.  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.
