Great morning or sunset walk between the resorts. It is nice to stop and swim. It is like a park or garden not very wild. Lots of birds and sea creatures to look for. It is a great walk for everyone.

My husband and I visited the boardwalk in the evening. It was very peaceful and the sunset was gorgeous. We saw lots of shorebirds. It was lovely.

This does take you along the resorts in Wailea, but there are gorgeous views of the ocean along most of the path. Don't expect a typical hike in nature here. This is more like a path in a really large park -- the gardens are all manicured here, and there will be people in most places. It can get crowded... More

This is a gorgeous walk/hike that anyone would enjoy. It doesn't take you into the wilderness, but it gives you beautiful views of the rocky northwest coastline. We were lucky to see a while bunch of huge sea turtles feeding in one of the rocky coves. We wished we hade brought bathing suits, because several of the coves along the... More

I seem to be going against common opinion, but my husband and I did not enjoy this walk. The only thing it was good for was to shake our heads in amusement/shock. Perhaps we are true "nature" lovers, not HEAVILY landscaped garden lovers. The gardens (of the resorts) were so manicured they bordered on being cartoonish. The grass couldn't get... More

Great beach train overlooking the water; landscaped with natural plants; gives access to beaches and hotels along much of Wailea.

Very well maintained concrete pathway that follows the shore about a mile in either direction from the Grand Wailea. There are clean restrooms here and there as well as benches and shade. This path is easy with only some slight hills, and is especially amazing at sunset.

If you drive to the end of the road south of Waliea, you reach a lva flow from the 1970's. Its a surreal landscape full of beautiful views of the volcano and blow holes and crazy black lava patterns as the molten lava froze into place when it hit the sea water. A neat drive and fun destination. Along the... More

Our family seemed to walk on the trail on a daily basis. We all enjoy the views and if you are dining at one of the neighboring hotels it is so easy to just walk to the restaurant.
