“Great place for an early morning run!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Not really a trail except at an area of lava rock overlooking the ocean. Mostly sidewalk or boardwalk. Enter at beach access parking just past napili Kai. You can continue past the board walk along the road a ways and enter the ritz grounds and go down to dt Fleming beach.

“Wear BUG spray”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful to watch the waves crash; unfortunately did not get to see the turtles, but might have missed then due to the cloud of bugs; don't often see bug clouds like this , so some entertainment even in watching others run and swat at the bugs; check it out

“Turtles!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I have no idea if this includes the beach in Kapalua but what a beach this was. You have to travel down a long flight of stairs to reach it but it is well worth it. Parking is free too. We had a great time playing in the surf and there was a couple of sea turtles that decided that they wanted to play with us too. The snorkeling is good also.

“Best views in Maui”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

What a treat. The ocean bays are spectacular, the snorkeling was world-class, and we swam with turtles. It gets no cooler than that. We walked the trail in flip-flops. Enjoy!

“Hidden surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

We happened upon this beautiful trail and didn't have our camera with us! So we went back later & took pictures. It goes in front of the Kapalua Villas, along the rocky coast. Lovely! Easy path.
