Travel to Maui often and always go to Polo at least a few times. Not crowded, easy to get to, and great swimming. We like to boogie board and this beach has nice waves that on most mornings are not to bad. Usually on this side of the Island the winds pick up after 11ish so it's best to enjoy... More

spent several afternoons at this beach while staying at Wailea. Always at available parking, with some spots usually in the shade. North side of the beach is crowded with lounge chairs from the Fairmont hotel. Found a couple of nice shady spots near the path down to the south side of the beach.

This was a nice little beach spot at the end of the Wailea-Makena Beach Path, right before the Polo Beach Hotel. Great place to take photos or just sit at sunrise/sunset.

Beautiful beach, smooth perfect sand, gentle slope in, clear waters! When the whales are there you can often see them right from the beach!

Polo Beach is a great place to kick back in your lounge chair with your umbrella and simply enjoy the water!

Smaller beach adjacent to Wailea Beach and Beach Walkway. Good if Wailea Beach is crowded. Public restrooms available.

Best in the morning, like most Maui beaches. It's smaller but shallower than most. Very warm and clean and well suited to families. Much calmer sometimes so good for less confident swimmers if the surf isn't too bad.

This little beach is a great spot for family day. The sandy beach is great for playing in and setting up a picnic. The beach is not big and narrows in some sections so you will want to get there early. Snorkeling and diving are popular in this location and include facilities to rinse off after. Close to shops and... More

This is a very calm and peaceful beach. Perfect for families (especially who have little ones). The waves are perfect for the little ones. There are great parking and restroom facilities which make it very convenient. After a day at the beach grab a bite to eat at the Shops at Wailea.
