  • 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 »

  • Beautiful beach. Fine sand. Plenty of room to spread out. Waves were pretty calm if you’re looking for something less intense. There is public parking as well as showers and restroom.
  • Wailea beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Situated on the west coast of the most tourist island of the Hawaiian archipelago – Maui, the beach is truly magnificent and is a great addition to the most romantic resort, you can imagine. The sand is very fine with gold nuances. Lazy coconut palmsswaying over the beach, reinforcing the holiday feeling. You may have travelled to many places and have seen gorgeous beaches in your life, but with certainly there is no so romantic and “sweet” beach such as Wailea Beach.
  • Very cool beach in fronting the Grand Wailea. While waiting for our luau we watched the large sea turtles swim right in front of us.
  • Beautiful clean beach it can get windy sometimes but who cares...you're on vacation, enjoy the day and beauty that this beach has to offer.
  • Wonderful beach. Very soft sand and clear water.
