Yikes, I’m at the halfway point of learning how to have fun – 26 days to go.
After a week of rain here in Haiku, I decided to head over to the sun and enjoy the Wailea side of the island.
Depending on the time of year, you may see whales, turtles, or movie stars. Music by Donald Kaulia Click here to view on YouTube – WAILEA COASTAL WALK
The Wailea Coastal Walk is perfect place to stroll, jog, or power walk along the south shore of Maui. Starting at the Keawakapu Beach, it is 3 miles round trip. (Though we normally park at the Shops of Wailea and cut through the Marriot Hotel.)
On one side of the path you have the beautiful Pacific Ocean and on the other some of the most luxurious resorts that you can find on Maui.
Depending on the day of the week, the different hotels showcase Maui artists; it’s a great venue, where you can meet the artists as well as purchase their creations. Everyone is welcome to stroll through the lobbies and check them out.
After passing the Kea Lani Resort you’ll come to the end of the walkway; there is a public restroom, picnic table and bar-b-q. You’ll see a short trail through the trees that leads to a lovely beach.
By the way, if you get hungry, at the Shops of Wailea you’ll find a number of restaurants, as well as at the hotels.
And be sure to jump in the ocean, the water is great! During the whale season, go under water and listen to their song.
The Wailea Artist Venues include:
Four Seasons Resort – Daily 8:00 am – 1:30 pm (Of course the Four Seasons is my favorite; you’ll find Steven there every Saturday )
Grand Wailea – Tues & Fri 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
Wailea Beach Marriott – Mondays, Thursdays & Saturdays 8:00 am – 2:00pm
The Kea Lani Resort – Daily 9:00 am – 5:00 pm
(Each artist displays their art just one day a week)
