Bring a swimsuit and jump off the rock at the end !

This coastal trail jabbers easy! Bring a swimsuit because there is a natural pool at the end and you're going to want to jump in !

A beautiful hike. We went from Flemming beach on the North end to Kapalua beach on the south, about 1.75 miles. Beautiful scenery on an easy trail. Had everything from beach to lava surfaces. Be sure to take the Dragon's tooth trail out to Makaluapana point - outstanding vistas overlooking the Plantation Club golf course on one side and jagged... More

Saw an entire turtle family off in the clear waters just South of the Dragons Teeth ... there the trail is not fully accessible (not flat or paved). Other than that great scenery and natural beauty.

Beautiful - well worth a visit. As in most places in Maui you park in a golf/resort area and can head into multiple entrances. After walking a bit we spotted some turtles from a cliff and watched them splash away.

Walked the entire length of this trail. Most of it overlooks the beach, with great views of the surf crashing into and over a rocky coast. Some connections take you on city streets and sidewalks but not too bad.

The Kapalua Coastal Trail stretches from Kapalua Beach to DT Fleming Park (approx. 1.76 mi. in length). There is ample free public parking at both ends of the trail (public beach parking) and limited free public parking at several spots along the trail. Parts of the trail are paved concrete while other parts are boardwalk, stone or macadam. For the... More

I've been looking at this trail for a year on my treadmill and finally made it here. Better in person. You can take as long a walk or hike as you want, the scenery is spectacular. If you only went one place this would be it. I can't wait to come back.

Nice drive through the winding roads.... Drive slow and enjoy the view. The blow hole is worth the drive.

We started at the Ritz. Actually ate at the burger shack. It was very good but very pricey for a burger. But expected that at the Ritz. We walked the trail. I really enjoyed it. Nice leisurely walk. Would be fine for kids and even older adults that are in good health.

Thank Karen R
