It would be hard for us to imagine a visit to Maui that did not include this spectacular walk. Our favorite beginning point is to park at the Keawakapu Beach parking lot and begin the walk South. Along the way, so many charming little pocket beaches have their own special charm before the path moves along uphill a bit, and... More

We had a recommendation from the concierge to try this area out and it was well worth the time. We hit it right at the perfect time and weather, allowing us to explore the beauty Hawaii really has to offer. Bring a pair of comfortable walking shoes and enjoy.

Enjoyed the walk along the beach. Although my son and I took breaks to go swim along the trail. We also had lunch at the Grand Wailea.

Take a morning walk along this trail and you will not think you even exercising! It goes along the beach and amazing beach properties. Stop at any of the restaurants you walk by for a breakfast or ice cold water! You will enjoy this walk!

Great place for a morning walk, especially S from Andaz where you can go a long ways with nice views and a good bit of up and down. Going N from the Andaz you're better off going on the beach as the trail quickly turns to a sand path between hedges where you have no view!

Park at the "shops at Wailea" and then enter through the outdoor lobby of the Marriot and down to the beach path. Watch the sun go down in paradise. Then keep walking south and go past two different Luaus. Stop and watch the performance for a while before continuing along the torch lit path. The walk is very romantic with... More

I assume this is for the paved trail that goes along the coastline in front of the Grand Wailea, Four Seasons, Marriott, etc. It was a couple of miles long and awesome for walking! Gets pretty busy around 7:30 am. If you hit it before that, you have the path pretty much to yourself!

Great trail to get out and get some exercise, and also a great way to see the sights. People running, dogs playing, super big beautiful homes, resorts - it's a 3 mile loop and very enjoyable no matter if you choose to do early morning or at sunset.

The best trail to walk along the ocean - just beware of runners early in the morning but it is a great way to get between hotels, the shops at Wailea and enjoy stunning ocean views at the same time!
