We started our hike from the public parking lot at Shipwreck Beach. From Shipwreck Beach, you can see the cliff from which the Six Days/Seven Nights characters jumped. The trailhead is just off the edge of the parking lot. There is no fee or permit needed to use the trail. We hiked to Makauwahi Cave, but if you don't want... More

This is an easy hike with unbelievable scenery. Highly recommended. We did it twice while in Kauai. Wearing decent shoes is advised and there's a beach at the end if interested in swimming. Walking out to the caves is a must. It's really beautiful.

Travel dirt Poipu road taking the left fork at the horse farm to start a 4 mile hike to The Point at Poipu. Trail is easy to follow. Stop along the way for great photo opportunities and to put your toes in the water.

Awesome views from this trail! 1st, stop and watch the surfers at the start of the trail at the Hyatt hotel. Trail takes you along the Cliffside. Rocky and uneven so wear closed toe shoes. We found out we could take a dog out for the day from the Humane Society, so we took Peyton up Sleeping Giant trail to... More

Take some time and follow the Heritage Trail Markers around the Koloa/Poipu area. They contain interesting historical facts that allow the traveler to go back in time. Maps to all the markers can be found in Old Koloa Town, behind the Crazy Shirts store.

If you like fantastic views of the ocean, turtles and rugged surrounding mountain, this hike along the coast is for you. It is a very easy hike along the shoreline. It does get warm, we went in the morning, so make sure you bring plenty of water.

This hike is easy to start. It's basically right out of the Grand Hyatt Resort. It's not a difficult hike, but lets you be on the cliffs above the beach. A short detour takes you onto the Hyatt Golf Course.

There are signs along the way alerting you to the possible nest locations, so pay attention and you might get a glimpse. The views out onto the ocean are spectacular! What wonderful, sea air to fill your lungs!

This is an easy walk along the cliffs off of Shipwreck beach. The views are beautiful. It takes you up on the cliffs, past an ancient heiau and along the rocky coastline. Definitely worth doing! The entire trail is about 4 mi round trip. I would rate this hike as easy.
