Not too often you find an elegant, nature trail suitable for all fitness levels. As you stroll or run on this path you are treated to beautiful vistas and if your lucky a playful display from the humpback whales visiting Maui! Around every corner is a photogenic vista and peeking in at the high end hotel grounds is a treat... More

A leisurely walk around the coast edge. There benches and spots of grass like picnic areas for a rest and to sit by the ocean. Can watch for whales in the morning with turtles too. A stroll or exercise walk depending on your state of mood. Beautiful

This trail was so beautiful but we fortunately had a two seater mega stroller which took up too much of the trail so we opted for the road on the way back to Kea Lani. Awesome for runners or walkers acting to enjoy breathtaking views.

We spent a couple days walking along here. Saw boats and many whales. Very busy early with all the joggers.

Great walk. it can be super busy with strollers and joggers but that didn't detract from the beauty and the birds and the off shore whales. Very nice way to get some exercise and see great sights.

It's located in at the end of a lava field and has the best snorkeling on the south side. Saw many fish that were not at other parts of the island. Def check this place out! There isn't a beach though, it's all rock so I would skip chairs and other beach gear, just bring towels and snorkels.

While in Wailea make sure to take this walk along this paved path for a great view of the ocean and a peek at all the hotels. We drive to Polo Beach to start our walk from there. There is plenty of parking available. The path does get crowded so stay to the right so people can pass. It is... More

We took brisk walks every morning for a week along this beautiful walkway. It can get quite busy so expect to walk in single file and to the right because there are joggers, walkers, strollers and baby strollers. No dogs and skate boards allowed which really helps the flow. We loved the people watching, the property envy, as well as... More

Loved walking here with our family at any time of day. Great views everywhere you look, a nice paved path for strollers/etc, and good people watching too.
