Any good hikes/beaches near Kahului?

I'm from Oahu but will be taking a minication to our neighbor island next month. Since I'm only going to be there for 2 days and 1 night, I was hoping to spend most of my time outdoors. If anyone wants to share their experiences/knowledge of any good (beginner-intermediate level) hikes near Kahului I would really appreciate it. Info about any recommended beaches would be nice too. I'd also like to note that I'm not really trying to hit up the super touristy spots, I get enough of that here lol

very interesting place to hike... a couple of years ago you could still see the tsunami damage to the beach.

It has a 2 mile coastal trail and it is free

Are you renting a car? There are some nice beaches near Kahului but not within walking distance.

Yes, I will be renting a car. Sorry, should've specified that in the question.

Baldwin Beach park is nice. Head towards Paia. With a car, I would also head down to Kihei and visit those beaches. About a 20 minute drive from Kahului.

Look into the Waihee Ridge Trail also. Iao Valley is close to Kahului too.

Kanaha Beach is back behind the car rental agencies, families and kite boarders.
