Beautiful beach, light crowds (due to Covid)
Sep 2021
This is a beautiful beach area. All Hawaiian beaches are open to the public, even if right in front of a hotel. There are good public parking areas in between the resort hotels, and public restrooms near the beach. When turning off the main road into the parking access, you will know pretty quickly if you are on hotel grounds, just go back and try the next side road. In Sept 2021, the crowds are very light, no problem with parking at the big, tree covered lot near Four Seasons, no problem setting up two beach umbrellas. There is a smaller lot on the other side of Four Seasons, that one fills up, so if you don't get a space there just keep going and try another lot. Beachgoers were courteous tourists, I didn't see any drunk college kids, but we visited in September. Sand is white and soft, ocean is very swimmable.

Scenic Beach walk
Aug 2021
Beautiful views all day. Easy to walk along the beach with a path between beachfronts. It was more crowded than I usually like--lots of activity with people walking, jogging, or otherwise enjoying the beautiful views, but worth a visit.

Best beach in Wailea
Aug 2021 • Family
This is by far the best beach in the Wailea area in terms of sand quality and water. It’s very beautiful but can get a little crowded. It is surrounded by hotels with beach chair service. Since it’s a small beach it’s gets pretty crowded. Even if you stay at one of the hotels you still may not be able to get a seat. It is especially beautiful since it faces sunset.

Soft sand... great little bay
Jul 2021
Great beach - if you are staying in one of the hotels its amazing, chair with umbrella by the beach ... if you are visiting for the day might be hard to find decent spot but still worth it. You can watch sea turtles by just getting a mask

Pristine beautiful beach
Jul 2021
We recently spent a week in Maui, and most of the time we were in Wailea near the beach. We've been to many beaches in the Caribbean and the US, and this is one of the best. The water is clear, and there are no rocks or seaweed. We never saw any jellyfish nor other sea creatures.

The sand is also extremely clean; there is no trash and you don't see people with pets as you do on other beaches. I was not bothered by any insects or crustaceans. It is just a short walk to your hotel from the beach. Restrooms are slightly off the beach as are showers.

There are no lifeguards, and some of the resorts have limited, free, beach chairs.

Beautiful beach with no crowds
Jun 2021
Lots of vegetation neat the beach, flat and a great walk in either direction. There is a coastal path up from the beach and you can see all the big hotels including : Andaz, Grand Wailea, The four Seasons and the Fairmont,.

The best beach on Maui!
Jun 2021
This was my favorite beach in Maui! The sand is super fine and soft and the waves are nice and mild. It's a decent sized beach but it does get crowded. We came here twice - one day the water was perfectly calm and clear. We swam over to the rocks on the left side to snorkel and it was pretty cool. The current is definitely stronger over there, so be careful. We saw a decent number of fish, but we also saw a sea turtle that swam right by us. So beautiful!
The second day the weather was a little iffy so the waves were slightly bigger and the water was a little more choppy but still absolutely fine to swim or just to float and relax, enjoying the beautiful scenery around you! I highly recommend this beach!

Beautiful Beach
Apr 2021
Soft sand beach, surf is not too rough... good relaxing beach between the Marriott and Four Seasons hotels.

This is a County beach so there are no fees and plenty of free parking. Watch for the sign as it is easy to miss the entrance (by design?). If the top parking lot is filled there is plenty of parking below (to the left as you drive in).

Beautiful beach
Apr 2021 • Family
Spent an afternoon here and it was so beautiful. Crystal clear water, nice sand and good snorkeling. We got some Tommy Bahama chairs and sat off to the side of all the resort chairs and it was way better. The taco truck that was nearby had some of the best tacos ever. Not sure what it was called but the whole family enjoyed our beach picnic.
