Wailea Beach

Stretching from Makena to the south and Kihei to the north, Wailea is an affluent area with first-class resorts and a sunny beach.

With a wide stretch of golden sand and gorgeous scenery in every direction, Wailea Beach is a picture-perfect destination. The sandy beach offers a view to the islets of Kahoolawe and Molokini while the surrounding landscape is draped in verdant foliage. The classy resorts with access to the beach blend into the background, allowing you to imagine yourself away from civilization.

Spend the day soaking up the sun as the crystal-clear azure waters slowly roll in and out along the shore. 

When you tire of the beach, the island offers a posh neighborhood to explore. Wailea Beach is connected to a path leading to all the major resorts and shopping and dining destinations.

The streets of Wailea offer a mixture of luxury brand stores and midrange shops, along with a diverse range of dining options. From American cheeseburgers to Hawaiian cuisine and ice cream shops, Wailea has food to suit any tastes.

For those wanting to get a little more in touch with nature take a trip on the Wailea Beach Path to surround yourself with native Hawaiian plants and views of the shoreline. Visit during the winter and you may be rewarded with the sights and sounds of whales passing nearby.
