Loved the waves, views and lava rocks along the beach. Breathtaking! Clear water with a special visit from a turtle everyday!

This has always been one of our favorite spots until now. With cruise lines not going to Lahaina, they bus passengers over to this location 1-2 times a week. Hotel beach chairs are harder to get, more crowded on those days, and less enjoyable. If you are looking for a peaceful Hawaiian beach, skip this one for now and go further away from the crowds.

While the beach is acceptable, it is not as good as Kaapalani Beach to the northwest of Maui. However the resorts and shopping centre are a sight to see as it is the richer end of Maui with luxury goods shops (Gucci etc) to match. Almost everything is more expensibe here than elsewhere on the island.

Solid snorkeling right of the very beautiful beach. Saw multiple turtles off the side in front of the four seasons.

It is relaxed with this place with idyllic beaches and many green trees parks. The most interesting is a helicopter and enjoying seafood.

Wailea beach is one our favourites, but when we arrived in early September 2023 the access to the free parking lot is closed until February 2024 while they do construction and improvements to the parking lot. Not sure if any on the high end hotels are providing parking or access. The beach is still open and we were able to use the Wailea beach walk to get there, but it is a long walk.

My brother in law and sister booked us the Marriott hotel on the beach. The beach is very friendly for families and couples. The water is cool

Great way to get from one beach or resort to another. This is much quicker than driving to the shops or restaurants.
