Kapalua Coastal Trail, Kapalua Reviews - Write a Review
We were looking for the Dragon Teeth Trail, but ended up on the Kapalua Coastal Trail, that runs along the water. Parking was available and we took beach access steps down from the parking area to the trail. The trail starts off very easy on a board walk, but later changes to a dirt trail, then heads over lava rocks. The ocean views are beautiful, and while the trail seems well used it was not over crowded on the weekday morning we leisurely strolled down the trail.
Nice scenic walk. Whoever said this was good for strollers didn't go very far on the trail. Did the trail from beginning to end and it was placed 20%, the rest of Rocky and dusty but worth going on with a good pair of shoes. If you want to get to the dragon's Teeth you might miss it because it is behind a white house off a golf course and you won't know how to find the entry point. If you get to the beach, you've gone 15 minutes to far.
Best place for snorkeling. Water is crystal clear you’ll see turtle but not allowed to touch. Different kinds of fish
This trail goes a fair way. Take your snorkeling gear as there are a number of great spots with lots of fish and the occasional turtle. Nesting area as well as an ancient burial group.
Short but eventful hike. Take the trailhead at Kapalua Bay Beach all the way through the Ritz Carlton. Along the way see and partake in cliff diving, wade in shallow pools, and walk along the some of the most private beaches in Maui. Parking is a bit of an issue.
