The Inside Scoop by our Local Expert
Wailea Beach, with its soft sand and scenic beauty, no wonder it is one of South Maui's favorites due to its central location. The beach offers good swimming and a few other fun tourist activities like a big trampoline contraption in the water (for kids). Backed by two very impressive, five star hotels, including the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea, the beach tends to be reasonably busy. An especially pleasant boardwalk leads to neighboring Polo Beach and Mokapu Beach to the north. Recommended properties include The Fairmont Kea Lani Maui Hotel, within walking distance to Wailea Beach, has 3 pools, 4 restaurants, a 24/7 fitness center, full service spa and salon, as well as Polo Beach right outside your villa. Nearby are 2 golf courses, many trendy shops, and Makena Beach State Park. Hotel Wailea, Outrigger Palms at Wailea, and the Grand Wailea a Waldorf Astoria Resort are also excellent properties near Wailea beach and much more.
