Best parks in Wailea-Makena

Beach
“While we love the close proximity to Charles Young beach, there are two other great beaches in walking distance from our unit. Of the three, we really enjoy Kam III for its soft sand and swimmer-friendly waters. It's also the largest of the Kihei beaches and is nearby lots of great shops and restaurants.”

Big Beach, also known as "Oneloa Beach" and "Mākena Beach", is a popular spot for sunbathing and bodyboarding by both tourists and locals. ”

“My favorite beach where you can snorkel, swim, sunbath and shower. This beach is the beginning of the boardwalk that travels behind all the hotels in Wailea including Grand Wailea and Four Seasons. You will have easy access to all the beach side restaurants with a stunning view along the way. ”
