Wailea Beach is probably the most popular beach in South Maui. Located behind the Grand Wailea Resort, the beach offers plenty of activities. The sandy shoreline and easy entry make it the perfect swimming beach for families. Snorkeling is usually good, but best in the morning and further out to sea. Afternoon winds make for good boogie boarding and body surfing. There are plenty of lifegaurds, water sport rentals, and restrooms/showers. While the resort is for guests, they don't mind if you walk through the resort and stop for refreshments at the bar. If you need a little exercise the Wailea Beach Path extends north to Mokapu Beach and south to Polo Beach (see map).
