Easy access for stellar views

Not too tough for the kids and they enjoyed the crashing waves. Slightly treacherous but okay. Keep your eyes in the little ones.

This is not really a hike, but a nice walk along a combination of boardwalk and scrub trail. Allow a couple of leisurely hours. I enjoyed the views of the various bays. At points we walked out toward the shore. A nice option is the burger and shake shack on the grounds of the Ritz Carlton. If you are starting... More

Stayed at the Ritz which was within walking distance for the coastal trail. My husband and I would get up early , put on our sneakers and head out to the trail. We watched early morning surfers and had a lovely walk with beautiful scenery. If you are in the area, it is a must. It's beautiful. We were lucky... More

I think the coastal trail has some of the prettiest views on Maui. Park at DT Fleming beach park and walk the trail around to Merrimans, have a drink and watch the sunset. Stunning scenery! We come every year and love this spot.

The trail from the Public Beach Access Lot at Kapalua Beach to Fleming Beach is a great way to get a bit of exercise while enjoying panoramic views!

Easy for any age to do and so scenic. Photo ops at every turn. The trail was a little confusing in the beginning (DT Fleming... More

A simple, easy walk along the shore. Boardwalk, paved walks, some very smooth path. Pretty scenery. Nice for kids.

We accidentally found this trail while driving around, glad we discovered there is public access behind some resorts. The Kapalua Coastal Trail has some of the most beautiful views of the ocean crashing against the shoreline. We were also able to see a whale or two so bring binoculars if you have them.
