Wailea Beach is the jewel of the Wailea Beaches. This is the largest beach in Wailea and a case could easily made that it is the most beautiful. It certainly was beautiful enough for the Grand Wailea Resort and the Wailea Four Seasons Resort to make the decision to construct their properties here and each of these hotels have been listed as the best hotel in the world on numerous occasions.

Wailea is a fabulous beach. It is about a quarter mile from tip to tip of its crescent shape and it is mostly sand bottom which makes it easy to enter. The sand bottom makes it a great beach for swimming but it is also a good beach for snorkeling when you go further out and gravitate to the rocks on either end. The sand on the beach itself is soft and golden and is perfect for beach activities.

The Wailea Beach Walk makes its way right past Wailea Beach and works its way along all of Wailea. This adds benefits to Wailea beach itself as you can easily leave your umbrella and blanket on the beach and make your way to one of the fabulous food concessions at one of the nearby hotels and have some lunch and bring back a cocktail. This shoreline walk, by the way, is one of the most beautiful walks in Hawaii and stretches about three miles covering the full distance of Wailea.

Stand-up Paddle Boarding
The conditions of the water at Wailea Beach are usually flat and glassy in the morning hours and as the trade winds fill in late morning and afternoon it can become wind-blown. The early morning conditions make it an ideal spot for enjoying some stand-up paddle boarding and boards can be rented right there on the beach.

Beach Amenities
Amenities at Wailea Beach include a parking lot adjacent to the Grand Wailea Resort, a restroom and shower and a beautiful grassy knoll from which to observe the beach.

Ocean Caution
Please be advised that all beaches and ocean locations in Hawaii can be potentially dangerous including this location. Be completely aware of the ocean conditions prior to entering the water and of course, never turn your back on the ocean when you are on the shoreline. It should also be noted that all shorelines and beaches in Hawaii, including this one, can be frequented by sharks, jellyfish and other sea creatures which can provide potential harm to people entering the water.
