Beautiful Beach and Water

I went on Vacation to Maui and enjoyed every minute of this calm and beautiful clear ocean. Not crowded and plenty of room to yourself. Animal friendly beaches are great!!!

We like to walk the beached for exercise and sunning, although the beach isn't very long we still enjoyed walking it. The water is refreshing and the waves get big for body surfing. Great sand...beautiful beach

This beach has a great view, a gradual decline to deep water, and snorkeling close by as well. You couldn't ask for more! It can get busy so get there early for the best spots.

This is a great beach for snorkeling or just relaxing. We saw multiple green sea turtles! Overall, a great beach!

This is the softest sand I have ever put my toes in, and the cleanest. Our hotel set us up with an umbrella and chairs looking out to the water. The water starts out a little cloudy because of the sand but then it turns to a clear blue/green. Go get a snorkel, kayak, or board and have a blast!

We stay at the Four Seasons when on Maui so we have easy access to Wailea Beach. It's a popular beach with locals and tourists alike and the vibe is always respectful and comfortable for everyone. Great walking and swimming here.

This was what I had been looking for...a beach with bigger waves & it didn't disappoint. The entrance to the beach o so different,so many trees. Once closer to the beach you can hear the waves crashing & can see the white sand. Enjoyed every minute there

This beach is awesome...soft white sand, parking lot not too far away and is located where it's almost always sunny! We like coming to this beach, however, sometimes the waves can be rough, so just have to watch them and see beforehand. The beach is located right by the Grand Wailea hotel, which is a very pricey and popular place.... More

We stayed at the Wailea Beach Villas, so the Wailea Beach was our "walk-to" direct access beach. Sand is soft, the waves were perfect for play, snorkeliing was great in the morning. Wailea Beach Villas provides lounges, umbrellas and towels, so we were always very comfortable. The beach is shared with 3-4 other luxury hotels as well as public access,... More
