We enjoyed our morning here, there is lots to look at. It is more popular, so there are a lot of families and snorkelers and scuba divers around. The sand is much more coarse at this beach, almost small pebbles.

Just get on South Kihei Road or Pi'ilani Highway and head south. This beach is right in front of Wailea Elua Village and right next to the new Andaz Wailea resort. There is public parking and restrooms and showers nearby.
