Location: Keawakapu Beach is one of the nicest beaches in Hawaii. This beautiful soft-sand beach is located in the heart of Wailea along S. Kihei Road. Public access is located at the intersection of South Kihei Road and Kilohana Drive.
Keawakapu beach is a half mile stretch of sandy beach fronting several of the most expensive homes on the South shore. These large estates, seen from S. Kihei Road, hide this favorite local spot. You can walk from one end of the beach (Sarentos restuarant) to the other, around the point, and pick up the Wailea resort walk-way which will take you past all of the Wailea resorts.
The sandy ocean bottom allows for great swimming conditions. A man made reef just about 400 yards offshore, increase protection from the strong swells. In addition, the inspired reef provides shelter for fish and a perfect exploration for beginner divers.
Generally speaking, this beach is very child friendly though during the Winter months, one should check rip currents or high surf advisory. Kona swells will cause higher than normal waves on this beach. Kona swells are most common in the Winter. Otherwise, take your snorkel gear, take an umbrella, there are waves onto shore for very mild boogie boarding. Hawaii Hideaways offers many wonderful property options in South Maui, conveniently located within walking distance or just a short drive to Keawakapu Beach.

We had a wonderful time at Sail Away and I recommended Hawaii Hideaway to dozens of people. You were a delight to work with and I will definitely use you again the next time we rent a home in the islands.

Perfect Combination of Elegance and Comfort
First time to Maui (and Hawaii). This is a spectacular setting and the home is a perfect combination of elegance and comfort. I could stay on the lanai all day long and be happy. Of course there’s a ton of fun activities, but it was great to have Gull Cottage as our base to come back to!

You’re Going to Want to Stay
Our family spent a splendid week in Kauai in early 2017, basing ourselves out of the Touching Green house. It’s in a great location, has everything you need, and is just lovely. The pictures don’t do it justice. You’re going to want to stay!
We had a wonderful time in Kauai! We remained in awe at the unimaginable beauty, both of the rental home, as well as Kauai itself. It will be a treasured memory for life. I hope we can come back and make more memories.
