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!

Cement sidewalks, gravel base, dirt and plank boardwalks are all used on this trail. I recommend taking the loop out on the point to see the bird sanctuary. Bathrooms are available at start and finish. The views are spectacular. Considered stopping for a drink at the Ritz Carlton, but we pushed on.

I was determined to keep up my daily walk and found this concrete walking path along the ocean below the Wailea resorts. I loved getting an early start at the Kei Lani end and walked all the way back to the Marriott. It does get busy around 8am but what a beautiful way to get your exercise.

The boardwalk is so accessible and a wonderful place for a morning walk or jog. The coastal garden project is very interesting, and I never tire of taking the walk.

I really enjoyed strolling down the trail. I enjoyed walking past the hotels, soaking in the scenery along the beaches and admiring nature.

Runs between Wailea resorts and beaches, paved and runs for a couple miles. Great for walking anytime, but fun while luaus are going on where you can see the entertainment. Fabulous sunset view!
