Polo Beach is located in the Wailea Resort community in front of the Fairmont Kea Lani Resort, the one that looks like an Arabian castle. To get to Polo Beach Park, take a right after you pass the front entrance to the Kea Lani. At the bottom of the hill, before the road veers left onto Makena Road, take a right into the public access parking lot.

There you’ll find a grassy lawn with picnic facilities and rest rooms positioned above the beach. Polo Beach is a sliver of reddish-white sand with lava outcroppings bordering each end. This side of the island has some of the clearest, calmest waters for snorkeling.

Kayaking and snorkeling are excellent at the northern end of Polo Beach. It is also a great place to watch for whales in winter, because they often pass through the channels between Maui, Kaho'olawe, and Lana'i. There are stupendous views of Molokini Crater and the islands of Kaho'olawe and Lanai. This is a resort-area beach and does tend to get crowded, so arrive early to get that killer spot. Remember, all beaches in Hawaii are public!

By recommendation of our hotel in Wailea we discovered this beautiful spot within walking distance. We found this little sandy beach at the bottom of the Kea Lani property in Wailea. It is the perfect spot at the end of the Wailea walkway. It was not as crowded as the other hotel beaches so there were plenty of spots in the sand. The water is nice and clear and had easy
