If you paddle kayak around the northern point of Polo Beach the next beach you’d land at would be Wailea Beach. To get there from the road, you’ll have to find the public parking lot between the Grand Wailea Resort and the Four Seasons Resort. It’s kind of tricky.

Once you see the Grand Wailea and pass its third entrance, you’ll be going uphill. Immediately at the top of this hill is a right turn into the Four Seasons service entrance. If the parking lots near the beach are filled, there is overflow parking on your left on the way back out. Wailea Beach is another sliver of soft reddish-white sand bordered by lava formations reaching out to the sea.

Snorkeling here is excellent around the northern point. The shore break is a little more rough at the south end, so good for body surfing. During summer swells, there is a surf break out at the point. Wailea Beach faces west toward the island of Kaho'olawe and Molokini Crater, giving it spectacular ocean vistas. The beach also gets crowded by the resort vacationers; maybe they’ll let you partake in the resort amenities as well.

We found this beach by kayaking in from the north. It has some really nice reef to snorkel over at the point. The beach is really nice but crowded with hotel guests. We went for a sail with a small outrigger!
