This paved pathway along the windward side of Kauai is frequented by tourists and locals alike. It's perfect for hiking, bicycling, skateboarding,and dog walking. This walkway has signs and photos from the Kauai Historical Society detailing the area's history throughout the Kapa'a portion of the path. It runs along the ocean side so there's always a breeze. Beautiful views, sometimes a monk seal pulled up on land, and access to the areas between the condo complexes and hotels and the sea makes this especially valuable. In this land where sugar and pineapples were king and now are no more, this path is a well made investment in tourism.

This one is a must do in Kauai. Rented bikes at Kauai Cycles for a few hours (very inexpensive) and went our way. The path begins just right behind Kauai Cycles. Lots of great beaches and awesome scenery going through the path as you ride along. Fun way to spend a morning!

I believe the Ke Ala Hele Makalae Path is the same as the Kauai path that is also reviewed. What a fun day it was to rent bikes and enjoy the sun and scenery. We continued once the trail turned into dirt path and found ourselves on a very overgrown single track. It was a fun adventure that ended at a secluded beach. I believe this beach has been called Donkey beach. The beach had a mini sprouting horn which was fun to see up-close the phenomenon.

This trail is paved and has a very slight incline so it's easy to walk or bike. I've seen people pushing a stroller and even a wheelchair along the path without effort - lots of people walk their dogs here, too. The trail runs along the ocean so it's very peaceful and scenic - it will eventually run all the way from Anahola to Nawiliwili but at the time I was there, it wasn't finished all the way. The trail is wonderful for people who want to ride a bike but I've preferred to walk along the route, as many others have chosen to do, and it's given me the chance to enjoy the flowers and many scenes along the way. Whatever method you use, this trail is worth exploring!!

Take some time for this great beach path - good for walking or bike riding along a popular surfing beach! Just be careful of poles that sometimes end up in the middle of the walkway. This is soon to be expanded even further in both directions. Good exercise with a beautiful ocean view!
