This walk was a very pleasant and easy walk. Fun to see all the 5 star resorts on one side and the ocean and coast on the other. I walked it in the daytime and I didn't find it super busy. I walked by myself so I wasn't worried about not being able to walk side by side. My only... More

Did it on my mobility scooter and it managed the hills ok. Wouldn't have missed it for anything. Saw lots of whales and gorgeous water. Felt like I was on the waters edge closer than I have ever been on my scooter! Went past Grand Wailea but not all the way to the end. So worth the time.

This si a great walk where you can see the savage Hawaiian coast and the plants that are indigenous. The path passes in front of the finest hotels on the island, and there are a few spots where the snorkeling is great

This is such a pleasant activity that we take all first time visitors to Maui to see it. Our favorite access point is the Marriott Luau. You can head to the right up to Andaz and Uloa Beach, or you can turn left and head down past the Grand Wailea to Polo Beach. Magnificent views of crashing waves, beaches, and... More

Beautiful paved walkway that runs along the back of the resorts in Wailea, right along the shore. Great views of the ocean, the waves crashing on the lava rocks and the West Maui Mountains and Lanai off in the distance. Don't expect this to be deserted, it is a very heavily used path by walkers and joggers. It's very handy... More

This is a nice trail for walking with views of the beach and ocean. However, it is very narrow so don't expect to walk beside a companion and have a conversation. The trail is just wide enough for single walkers/joggers. Even passing another walker is hard due to the narrow path. It's also not lit nicely at evening. Too bad.... More

Main path that connects all the hotels, great view of the Ocean the entire walk. Makes it very easy to get around from hotel to hotel.

Lots of fun walked every morning and evening. Sunsets are beautiful. It gets pretty dark on the trail after sunset. The views are amazing and you don't have to walk in the sand but very close to the beach.

We stayed in Kihei and used this trail for part of our walk to the Shops at Wailea to pick up ice cream at Lappert's or cookies at Honolulu Cookies. Concrete pathway that runs by all the nice hotels. Used by locals and tourists to access the beaches, enjoy the sunset, or get in some exercise. Wish it were longer!... More

Beautiful views. Great family activity. Good exercise. Me, wife, two children 6 and 10, and Grandma 78, enjoyed it very much.
