Many consider the very south side of the island of Maui, and specifically the area of Wailea and Makena, as the very best that Maui has to offer. I would agree! Characterized by great golf at the Wailea Gold, Emerald, and Blue Courses, and with a line-up of world class resorts (starting with the Andaz, then Wailea Marriott, the Grand Wailea, the Four Seasons Resort Maui, and concluding with the Fairmont Kealani Resort) and magnificent beaches, Wailea/Makena is definitely a heavenly place to live or to visit. The weather is consistently 82-87 degrees year round, dry and sunny.
