Coastal trail has great views-go early or late to avoid the heat!
Enjoy The Burger Shack at The Ritz after your long walk.

We really enjoyed this easy hike along the coast of Kapalua. The public parking filled up fast so we paid 10 dollars to park just a few steps away. I would recommend going out on the rocks to see the tide pools and to get a better view of the coast line. We loved the view of the island of Molokai and the rugged coast. We also learned that the Ritz-Carlton has to build farther back off the coast because when they were digging during construction they found a burial site.

This is a really easy trail which is well signed and pretty flat. There is no shade however so take water and sun cream. There are several really pretty bays and beaches, and you walk past some lovely houses/resorts. There are toilets towards Napoli Bay but not at the end near Oneloa Beach.

My daughter (and husband) loved the hiking near our hotel and this trail was a favorite. Beautiful scenery along the rocky shore!

Great views of the coast with some nice tide pools along the way. Keep an eye out for sea turtles as well. Nice during sunset.

There is a small parking lot at the entry, be sure to map it. Parking is free and not on the road. From there a nice walk along the coast. There are a number of bird nesting areas where they burrow into the ground. We saw a few nestlings all around. Pretty fun.

Well used trail from Ritz Carlton hotel about 1.75 miles in length, ending at the beach, There is a side spur leading down to the Dragon's Teeth park where wind/sea erosion has shaped volcanic rock to look like a row of teeth sticking up.

And most secluded beaches. Can be rough surf but some primo snorkeling. Also walk to the Beach Bar at the Ritz and have a burger and Lava Flow. Check out the Labyrinth!

Easy hike to wander along the west coast of Maui. We passed gorgeous resort properties and wild waves along lava rock. We were lucky enough to see a Hawaiian Monk seal lounging on the rocks below us!
