Good little beach that is pretty much used by the resort. There is enough parking for others to enjoy it as well. Close to shops at Wailea. Suitable for all ages.

Beautiful, clean, great view. Beach does get crowded. Get to beach early if you want front row. Glad for umbrellas!

This beach is located among some very high end hotels and condos. Parts of the beach appeared to be reserved for the patrons of these hotels/condos as many lounge chairs with towels and umbrellas were set out. It was a fairly crowded beach.but well maintained.

You can always go get in your car and drive to Makawao which is a cool little town that is "upcountry"...or you can just walk next door to the hotel and shop at the mall.
