Maluaka Beach (in front of the Makena Golf & Beach Hotel)
Wailea Beach – This is a long, white, soft, sandy beach located in the front of the large resorts. The beach is very popular with tourists for that reason. You can see spectacular sunsets there and during whale season many whales are seen right from the beach. If you want to have a wedding reception at one of the resorts, this is a very convenient site for your wedding guests. The name Wailea is translated into “Joyful Sea” but many people call the area the “dancing sea”. It is a particular joyful site to have your wedding.
White Rock Beach – Palauea Beach is known for the sparkling, white pebbles that leads to the sandy beach and is commonly called “White Rock” Beach. This is another local beach that does not see many tourists. The beach is a crescent shape which helps to block the trade winds. Palauea is the perfect place for a bride that will be wearing a veil. At the rocky point, the water is especially clear and helps to set up great photographs with crashing waves. Palauea means “lazy” and makes this a wonderful swimming beach as the sand continues in the water to make it easy to enter the ocean. It’s beautiful as a wedding site and also wonderful for a honeymoon.
