A two-mile walk along Maui's northwest coast, the trail begins and ends on a beach. In between, you'll see spactacular oceanfront and bountiful greenery on the dramatic coastline.

Just a great hike that is very accessible. This was our teenage kid's favorite hike of our stay. The views are breathtaking. It is much longer than we expected--make sure to bring plenty of water.

Very short easy hike. However, start of trail difficult to find. It was an excellent way to get excercise without too much of a drive from Lahaina resort area.

My wife and I stayed at the Montage, Kapalua bay and went jogging most mornings along the Kapalua Coastal Trail. Really beautiful. You pass several sandy beaches with very few visitors. Stunning landscape with the sandy beaches, the lava hills and the blue ocean.

Beautiful views, but the drive is not for the beginner. Half of the drive is hairpin turns on narrow one lane roads with traffic going both ways. The locals also drive 3 times the speed limit, do NOT like to share the road, and are...More

This trail is so beautiful. The beaches and surrounding areas are so pretty. Pictures don't do it justice. This is a good activity to enjoy that is free and enjoyable. It was really hot closer to noon so a early morning hike would be better....More

You could be taking pictures all day long as you travel around this beautiful Island. Lots of oohs and aahs and clicks of the camera

Very nice walking trail, equally enjoyable in the morning or in the evening to watch sunset. Park someplace away from public parking, it's crazy. There are facilities at the beginning of the trail, bring water and camera.

This is an easy paved trail along beautiful beaches. It's a bit too hot during the middle of the day but makes for a lovely stroll early in the morning or late afternoon

Great walk from Kapalua with a stop at the Ritz for lunch. The trail is mostly easy but I would recommend more than just flip flops and it is not suitable in parts for older people or the less physically able.

No , trail is not stroller accessible. Your baby would need to be carried in a sling. Part of the trail requires some climbing , nothing crazy but some climbing.

Sneakers should be fine. The first part of the trail is suitable for all ages. There are some moderate hills if you venture out a little further.
