    Hands down our favourite beach in Maui. The sand and beach are perfect, water is perfect to swim in & if you come in the evening, you'll get a breathtaking sunset.

    "1.5 mile paved beach walk lets you stroll among Wailea's prettiest properties, restaurants, and rocky coves. Teems with joggers in the AM. Landscaped with exceptionally rare native plants."

    Rented paddleboards ($20/he from Four Seasons). We had never paddleboarded and it was a blast. Takes a lot of balance. We saw lots of turtles and sting reys. Really awesome.

    Great beach to spend the day. Beware of the monthly jellyfish (Box & Man-o-war) swarms around 7-10 days after the full moon each month. See 808jellyfish.com for more info. Aloha!

    This beach is smack dab in the middle of the Grand Wailea Resort and the Four Seasons Resort. The parking lot is tiny - only enough for about 15 vehicles.

    Great public (free) beach with easy access to awesome snorkeling. Look along rocks to south for lots of stuff. Saw a turtle there that had to be 5 ft long and a few hundred pounds.

    Lots of fish and sea turtles right off shore. Very mild waves, kid friendly beach. Try paddle boarding, it's just challenging enough to keep it interesting. Strong winds in the afternoon so take advan

    Great waves but when they say dangerous shore break, they mean it. You might get tossed around a bit if you're not careful.

    Gorgeous beach and terrific sunsets. Recommend watching them up the hill by the four seasons. Softest sand on this beach and the water is gentle and crystal clear.

    Softest sand we have ever felt anywhere. That includes other beaches on Maui, Kauai, Florida, Key West as well as Italy, Tahiti and all the West Indies.

    Keep your eyes peeled for endangered monk seals. There are only approximately 1,200 remaining, and they often come to this beach.

    When the waves are crashing, it's definitely worth grabbing a floaty. Especially late night. The ocean water stays warm!

    Soft sands. Very calm ocean for a relaxing swim. Low waves. Surrounded by a coral reef perfect for snorkeling. Also great for kayaking and paddle boarding.
