More About Wailea


South Maui might be the driest area of the island, but that's just because the sun is always shining making it a sun-lover's dream destination. In the center of this stunning stretch of land is Wailea. An upscale resort community that delivers luxury resorts, high-end condominiums, fine dining, and plenty of shopping. For the golf enthusiast take your pick of some best courses on the island: Wailea Blue, Wailea Gold, or Wailea Emerald.

To the north of Wailea is the laid-back town of Kihei. Enjoy the six miles of sandy beaches that deliver unobstructed views of the neighboring islands of Lanai, Kahoolawe, and Molokini. Learn more about the local marine life at the Maui Ocean Center, a tropical reef aquarium filled with more than 60 exhibits. During the winter months, visitors flock to Maalaea Bay to witness the return of the humpback whales to the warm Hawaiian waters.

When it comes to beaches, the opportunities are endless. Take a leisurely stroll on the Wailea Beach Path beginning at the Andaz Maui at Wailea. The path takes you past Mokapu Beach, Ulua Beach, Wailea Beach, and Polo Beach while offering stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and the resorts that line the coast and ends at the Fairmont Kea Lani, Maui where you can reward yourself with a refreshing Mai Tai.

For a nice day trip, pack a lunch and head to Makena Beach State Park, one of the most extensive undeveloped beaches in Maui. Nearly 2/3 of a mile long and protected from the trade winds, Makena Beach is a local favorite. Make sure you don't miss Oneuli Beach nearby, a quiet black sand beach off the beaten path that happens to be a favorite hangout for honu (green sea turtles).
