Polo Beach

Here are a few photos from my scout of Polo Beach in Wailea. It’s an excellent beach park that has amenities, showers, and the best part – you can use the Fairmont Kea Lani’s beach chairs even if you’re not a guest! Also, take my advice and go exploring around this beach. Go for a […]

Napili Bay Video Guide

This video is of Napili Bay on Maui’s west side. I can’t explain why I edited the piece in this style, other than to say that I just let the editing process take me where it wanted to take me. I know that it’s a departure from some of my other videos, but hopefully the […]

Wailea Beach Video Guide

If you had to categorize Wailea Beach, it would probably be called a ‘resort beach’ since it’s surrounded by the Four Seasons and Grand Wailea, with the Wailea Beach Marriot close by. And most of the beachgoers here are probably staying at one of those resorts. But that shouldn’t take away from the fact that […]

Ulua Beach Video Guide

This is Keawanaku Beach, located in the lava fields of South Maui. It’s only accessible by boat or hike.

People lived among the rocks […]
