Wailea Beach Park is located in the upscale Wailea resort area in south Maui. This is one of the best beaches in all of Maui and probably the best in south Maui so put this on your list and check it out.

Wailea Beach has a great location and great views all around and is a pretty large beach with a flattened crescent shape to it. The sand is is pure powder so it's great to play in but will stick to you like nothing else can!

The waves are usually gentle so it's great for smaller kids. The water is usually quite clear here though it tends to get a little churned up with the powder sand closer to the shore. It's a good place to snorkel, relax, swim, or have fun on a boogie board (amateur hour only here, these aren't big waves).

There are downsides to Wailea Beach and that starts with the parking situation. Although there are a few parking spots on Wailea Beach road (off of Wailea Alanui Drive), they go quick so arrive early if you are coming by car. You'll find bathrooms and showers on the path between the parking lot and beach.

The water is usually super clear and the powder sand is fun to build with but the water here just never comes off as all that pretty. The darker sand tends to make the water appear almost green in color rather than a beautiful blue that you might find elsewhere. Don't let that stop you, it's clean and clear here, just maybe not as pretty as other beaches.

The beach is located right behind the Grand Wailea A Waldorf Astoria Resort.
