Wailea is surrounded by beauty; wherever you look there is 360 degrees of incredible scenery. The gorgeous blue water, exotic nature, soft sandy beaches, bright sunny, colorful sunsets, and abundance of flowers, its all a part of what makes Wailea pure paradise. This is a place people come to relax and literally soak up the beauty. Wailea has built up with tourism and therefore, practically everything about it caters to visitors. Top-notch hotels, spas, and golf courses highlight your stay in paradise. Many people come here to get married and so most of anything a wedding may need, is also available.

But, out of the water you can busy yourself by golfing, playing tennis, hiking, or admiring the Hawaiian arts and crafts around the city. If it's high quality shopping you're after, don't worry, there are great opportunities here from luxury stores like Tiffany & Co, to more modest boutiques bearing gifts of the islands.
