Po’olenalena beach is uncrowded and picturesque. It is located in the posh part of southern Maui in Wailea. The Grand Wailea hotel is just a few minutes away from Po’olenalena beach. The Grand Wailea is a hotel that is as ritzy and fanciful as resort can get when staying on Maui! Forbes Travel Guide tells why it is such a fabulous place to stay and why its worth your hard earned money. It is located on Wailea Beach which is stunning but often very crowded. I much prefer Po’olenalena’s serene beauty and it is great for photos. Plus it has great snorkeling right off of the beach near turtle town and yes we saw a turtle while snorkeling their! However, sipping a tropical drink while lounging poolside or in a cabana is more your thing, then Wailea Beach is definitely the place for you to be seen!
