"Nothing short of beach perfection"
Wailea Beach is located in the upscale community of Wailea, a resort area on Maui, Hawaii, immediately south of the town of Kihei. Those looking for luxury resort hotels and condos, fancy restaurants, upscale shopping and world-class golf courses will not be disappointed.
Wailea Beach is bookended by the elegant Wailea Four Seasons on the southern end and the Grand Wailea Resort on the north end of the beach. The expansive golden sand slopes gently to the ocean and is protected on both sides by lava rock points which make for great swimming. When the ocean is calm, the snorkeling is good near the rocky outcroppings.
The Wailea resort area as a whole makes a great base for a Maui vacation. South Maui tends to be sunnier as compared to other areas on Maui. This can be particularly important during winter months when the island receives a bit more rain.
Wailea Beach is unquestionably a study in beach perfection, and if you don’t mind a resort vibe (and a crowd to go with it) this is truly an outstanding beach.
Facilities include; restrooms, showers and plenty of free public parking as well as a paved walkway that runs the length of the beach (and beyond) connecting the area’s beaches and resorts.
