“Hidden surprise!”
5 of 5 bubbles 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.

“Gorgeous area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

The views and fresh breezes were just incredible. Easy walking, too. Highly recommend taking some time to just walk and soak it all in. Great part of Maui!

“Nice walk”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 21, 2013

A nice "trail" that goes from sidewalks to dirt and back. The beach at the beginning was nice and sandy, and it was fun to meander the paths on the Ritz Carlton property--wow.

“Great walk along the coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2013

What a fantastic find! Too many people go to Kapalua or Napili Bay and never experience this great trail. The views are awesome. The sounds of the pounding surf are there with every step. You can do this trail in slippers, (sandals) tennis shoes, walking shoes just do it. There are lava points to walk out on and sandy areas. The surf can be very strong along this part of the coast so be very careful, don't get too close to the edge. At sunset there are so many spots that would be perfect for a romantic or family set of pictures. Take advantage of this hidden gem.

“An excellent addition to the trail network at Kapalua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 12, 2013

The trail system at Kapalua is second to none on Maui. The mauka trails are extensive and provide a great workout.
The Coastal Trail gives you access to a beautiful coastline and makes it easy to make it out to the points. You can hike it in slippers, but best have some hard sole shoes if you want to walk out on the points. The volcanic rock can get pretty abrasive.
