Kapalua Coastal Trail, Kapalua Reviews

  • It's flat. It's lava rocky, so do be sure to consider something more rigid than flip flops. But there's a well worn path, and you'll have fun exploring the coast line, enjoying the surf, and having a *really* leisurely "hike" which is more of a spirited walk. It's about 3.5 miles round trip, but if you are at the Ritz, Montage, Kapalua Bay Villas, or a rental house, you'll find it easy access and a good place to walk and chat with the wifey, some coffee, and beautiful views of the ocean and Northwest Maui! The parking fills up fast, but there are bathrooms / beach showers.

  • Great trail if you are staying in West Maui (I wouldn’t drive more than 30 minutes to see it). Beautiful sights, plenty of spots to rest. Variety between nature and man-made parks. Easy walk, my wife was 7 months pregnant and fine because the weather was not too hot.

  • Awesome trail with great views. Not a very long trail that starts at Kapalua beach. It’s less than 2 miles one way. There is a nesting area for about half of it (watch out for bird poop). No restrooms along the way. There are some steep narrow park but our smaller children made it through them fine. If you go left once you get to the nesting grounds the trail will take you to a cove that overlooks the Kapalua Cliff House. Here you can jump off the rocks weather/tide permitting.

  • 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.

  • Just a beautiful hike the ocean just don't have words to describe my wife and I my daughter and her husband and two children had a wonderful time
