Maui is home to many incredible hiking trails that can be found all around the island. If it’s your first time visiting Maui and you’re looking for a great “warm-up” trail, I highly suggest starting off your trip with the stunning Kapalua Coastal Trail.
Kapalua Coastal Trail is one of the shortest and easiest trails that you can hike in West Maui.
Here are a couple of things to keep in mind before you head out on the trail.
Here is the detailed breakdown of the Kapalua Coastal Trail covering what the hike is like and a few of the must-see stops along it.
To start the trail park in the visitor parking lot and head down towards the ocean on a paved path that leads to Kapalua Bay Beach. You will see a tunnel that you will need to go through – the beach is soon after.
After Kapalua Bay Beach, the trail continues on a paved path next to luxury hotels and resorts. Then the paved path will end and turn into a sandy trail.
