With 120 miles of coastline, Maui boasts over 30 miles of beautiful beaches. On these world famous shores, you’ll find white, black and red sand beaches, ocean sports like surfing, windsurfing and kitesurfing, as well as some of the best beaches in the world for simply swimming, snorkeling and sunbathing. Some are easily accessible beach parks with lifeguards, picnic facilities and restrooms. Others are found off the beaten path. Right here in Wailea and Makena, we're lucky to have such close proximity to the sand and surf near our Hawaii resorts in Maui.
