The island of Maui offers an astounding 30 miles of beaches. From white and golden sand, to jet black sand, to even red and green sand, the beachcombing opportunities are endless. Add the beautiful Wailea Beach in Maui to your itinerary if you are looking for a beach that has nice, wide sand and a high class resort vibe.
With views of Kaho’olawe, Molokini, and Lana’i off the coast, Wailea Beach is a great spot to spread out your towel, soak up the sun, and enjoy the scenery or get caught up on your latest read. The usually calm, inviting ocean and gentle slope make this a great swimming spot. To pick up the pace a bit, bring along a boogie board to catch a ride on the small, unintimidating waves. Snorkeling conditions are also good at either end of the beach near the rocky outcroppings, where you can observe a variety of tropical fish.
Two resorts situated on Wailea Beach means this is not a place to go if you are looking for solitude. However, the resort vibe means there is always plenty to see and do. The Wailea Beach Path extends along the shoreline in both directions from Wailea Beach, stretching a total of 1.5 miles along the coast. Walkers and joggers will enjoy a picturesque jaunt down this trail, which provides constant views of the ocean and offshore islands, and covers five public beaches.
