Beautiful beach next to the hotels, nice footpath with lots of runners all day. Nice to have a joga session in the morning, rent snorkeling gear (there are sea turtles just next to the Grand Wailea) or go supping.

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.
