After 10 months of full-time conservatory theater training in snowy New York and an arduous move from coast to coast, Maui was a welcome getaway. I had gone from a mild Australian winter straight to a freezing northern hemisphere one so a week of lazy beach days in the sun was definitely due.
Breakfast overlooking the grounds was such a change from the light-speed of New York life, not having anywhere to rush off to.
Wailea beach is lined by a row of resorts, so plenty of dining options within walking distance. There’s a small cove at the end of the beach, under a wooden bridge, where you have to climb over a rock shelf to get to it – there tends to be nobody there, and the sea turtles swim around from the rocks on the left.
