Best Things To Do In Wailea

Wailea Ulua Beach

Well-manicured, Wailea in South Maui, is the most elite haunt. Don’t even bother searching for a gas station or a fast food restaurant here. Wailea area is all about luxurious beachfront resorts, low rised condo villas, emerald green golf courses and tennis courts so chic that they are called "Wimbledon West".

If you have a look at Wailea beaches you will easily see why it has become such a hot real estate. The fine golden-sand crescent of sparkling jewels all along the Wailea coast are postcard material inviting for phenom swimming, sunbathing and snorkeling. So grab your beach towel, pack your snorkel gear and enjoy the good life.

If you choose to stay at the Four Seasons Wailea and the Grand Wailea Resort Hotel and Spa, you’ll get to Wailea Beach right from the front yard. One of the best golden-sand crescents on Maui’s sunbaked coast and one of the five beaches of Wailea Resort, Wailea Beach is large, wide and is rimmed on both sides by black lava points. From the beach you can enjoy a spectacular view out to sea, protected by neighboring Kahoolawe and Lanai and the small crescent of Molokini. This place is so beautiful, that you could spend all your vacation on the beach doing absolutely nothing and it would be a super vacation.

The Wailea Beach Marriott Resort, for instance, features a luau which the producers refer to as dinner show. It is based on the history of Hawaii discovery and the show focuses at the documented voyages to Maui of Laamaikahiki and Moikeha. The era is called Honuaula which is the name of the show, and where the narration is told in traditional Hawaiian chant and hula depicting the events of the history of Maui.

Luau is a Hawaiin way of saying "Let’s throw a party" and it typically involves singing, dancing, laughing and a lot of eating. What concerns eating, the main course is kalua pig, which is a whole pig cooked in the underground oven and then dug out with sort traditional ceremony. The ceremonious pig is then cut and served with plenty of other side dishes, such as sweet potatoes, poi, lomi-lomi salmon, fresh fish and a number of deserts.

That is a typical format but luaus can also be different. Backyard luaus are held to celebrate birthdays, graduations, weddings and special events and private parties. Commercial luaus are available for anyone who buys a ticket and usually include an all-you-can-eat buffet, an open bar and an aloha shell lei greeting and other entertainment.
