Parking: Head south along Wailea Alanui Drive until you pass the Grand Wailea Resort, and turn right immediately after. You may notice a small sign for Wailea Beach as you make that right. Keep driving forward, and you will find plenty of parking. There is a small roundabout at the end of the lot.
In the daytime, Wailea Beach is a lovely place to take in views of Kaho’olawe and Molokini Crater. If you love snorkeling, you’ll have fun exploring off Wailea Beach. There are several lava rock formations and many satellite reefs in this area. The ocean is a big place, and you never know exactly what you may see. When whale season is in full swing, there is a good chance you will catch a glimpse of humpbacks splashing, miles offshore!
We trust that you will have a wonderful time at Wailea Beach, whether you’re lounging, swimming, or dancing. Be whale!
