When in South Maui
The southern region of Maui is Hawaii’s premier destination where you can have your best Hawaii experience. One place to experience an authentic sunny South Maui lifestyle is a much-coveted Wailea luxury resort community that offers convenient access to nearby recreational and tourist sites. It is the less crowded section of Maui with five crescent-shaped beaches, stellar golf courses, as well as world-class fine dining and shopping places. For accommodation, Wailea has five hotels, condominiums, and rental homes to match every traveler’s budget. The 1,500 acres of prime land is also home to the famous Wailea Beach, Ulua Beach Park, Polo Beach, and Keawakapu.
