We are staying at the Wailea beach villas so having them do the beach set-up is invaluable. If you aren't staying at one of the resorts you will have to bring your own towel and be prepared to bake in the sun! You definitely will want to bring an umbrella. Absolutely gorgeous setting though and fun waves to play in.

The beach was very nice, the surf was up for 2 of the days and you have to be careful for yourself and children. Know yourself and when in doubt, dont go out. I consider myself a decent swimmer and found myself being tossed around easily.

This is a shared beach by all the resorts on Wailea. We stayed at the Marriott and they required us to carry our chairs and umbrellas if we wanted to spend the day here so we chose to walk the beach at night when it was quiet. It is definitely good for night stroll on the beach.

This is one of my favorite places in the world. Unfortunately, the resorts line chairs up like a cruise ship. It prevents fighting over chairs, but lessens the beauty of the experience.

Wailea beach was a perfect setting. Light winds, clear blue water, white sands and no waves provided the right environment to relax. The snorkeling was also amazing seeing manta rays, turtles and whales. Great place to watch sunset. #amazing
