- Polo Beach lies on the southwestern shore of East Maui, in the Wailea area. It is fronted by the Polo Beach Resort condominiums and has a parking area for forty cars. The beach is split into two areas divided by a lava rock outcropping. It slopes gently into the water, then descends steeply. These beach conditions contribute to a dangerous shore break during times of high surf.
The waters are usually calm in the morning, which provides good swimming conditions. Snorkeling around the rocks at the northern end of this beach is good when water conditions are calm. The afternoon winds, that blow through this region of the island, create high surf for boogie boarding and body surfing. Facilities at Polo Beach include showers and restrooms.
