About Wailea

Wailea is located on the south-western part of Hawaiian Island of Maui, just 14 miles from Kahului Airport.

Meticulously laid out over 1,500 acres of lush tropical vegetation, the beach at Wailea is one of the most visited on Maui. The popularity of the beach is partly due to the area’s luxurious oceanfront resorts and spas, as well as its legendary year-round average temperature of 82 degrees!

Even the shopping at Wailea has an upmarket feel with Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Prada and Tiffany & Co all represented next to surfing boutiques such as Quicksilver, Rip Curl and the Honolulu Surfing Company.

When it comes to fine dining, you will be spoilt for choice with American, international and Hawaiian specialties all available.

Top Wailea events include the February Whale Week and the Maui Film Festival. See if you can catch one during your stay!

What to do

Avid golfers flock to Wailea just to play the Gold Course (one of the top golfing destinations in the country!). Robert Trent Jones II designed championship course that takes advantage of the natural surroundings, while incorporating stunning ocean views from every tee. A true thinking man’s course, and considered one of the best designed courses in the world.

Hawaii is, of course, all about surfing and Maui has its fair share of top spots where the pros come to catch big winter waves. But on the south of the island, the waves are around three feet in height, making them perfect for beginners.

Go hiking in the Haleakala National Park and climb to the top of the world’s largest dormant volcano, Haleakala, where you will be rewarded with fantastic views of the island.

Top Wailea travel tips

With almost perfect weather all year round, there is no bad time to visit Wailea.

For beach attire, avoid the fancy stores and ask the locals where they go shopping, instead. Consider buying a snorkel, mask, and fins as it can actually work out cheaper than renting.
