Nearby Things to Do

Grab your snorkel and step right out into pristine waters where you'll see an abundance of colorful fish and honu (Hawaiian green sea turtles) who make their home along the lava fingers at the edges of Pa'ipu Beach. Kayak rentals, including glass-bottom kayaks, provide an alternative to those who prefer to see these beautiful creatures without getting wet. Stand-up paddle boarding and surf lessons are available nearby, as well as sunset dinner cruises, snorkel and scuba excursions, whale watching boats, and more. On shore, enjoy world-class golf at several Wailea or Makena courses, on-site tennis where you can play at night under the lights, or visit nearby parks with walking/jogging paths, an oceanfront skating rink, sand volleyball, and barbecue pavilions.

The recreational activities listed below are available either on-site or near the hotel; fees may apply.
