Maui Wailea Beach

Wailea is the best gold-sand crescent on Maui’s sun-baked southwestern coast. One of fi ve beaches within Wailea Resort, Wailea is big, wide, and protected on both sides by black-lava points. It’s the front yard of the Four Seasons Resort and the Grand Wailea Resort, Maui’s most elegant and outrageous beach hotels, respectively. From the beach, the view out to sea is magnifi cent, framed by neighboring Kahoolawe and Lanai and the tiny crescent of Molokini, probably the most popular snorkel spot in these parts. The clear waters tumble to shore in waves just the right size for gentle riding, with or without a board. From shore, you can see Pacifi c humpback whales in season (Dec–Apr) and unreal sunsets nightly. Facilities include restrooms, outdoor showers, and limited free parking at the blue shoreline access sign, on Wailea Alanui Drive, the main drag of this resort.
