Wailea Beach Information

Wailea Beach Information

Wailea Beach is one of the best beaches serving Maui's South Shore resorts, with a perfectly curved wide shoreline and black lava points at each end.

The waters of this mini bay are protected from strong surf and lovely for swimming and snorkeling. Its waves aren't the professional surf wave sizes of other Hawaii beaches, but they're big enough and fun to ride.

The shore provides a great vantage point to see Pacific humpback whales as they swim by between December and April, and you can also see the islands of Kahoolawe, Lanai, and Molokini plus spectacular sunsets from the soft Wailea sand.

A paved walkway connects the many resorts along this beach, with lush tropical plants, restaurants, and sandy coves to explore. There are restrooms, showers, and limited free parking on Wailea Alanui Dr. (park at the blue "Shoreline Access" sign).
