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.

It rained quite a bit on the north side of the island while we were there, so we decided to wait until a sunny day. Finally the sun came out and stayed out so we went on this adventure. It was gorgeous! So many great views and things to see.

Easy hike but no shade. Absolutely beautiful views. We googled map to DT Fleming Beach which took us in a neighborhood, Google Map it to the Ritz or Montage.

We didn't do the whole thing, but what we saw was beautiful. If you love trekking over rocks, this is a must do. Fantastic view every step of the way.

We walked this trail during whale season and saw whales spouting and playing the whole time. We also saw turtles. Beautiful coastal scenery and the walk took about an hour or so round trip

Great walking trail along the coastline. Fun to take your time and stop for the views. When we went the waves were awesome, crashing on the cliffs below. Don't forget your camera.

The Kapalua rocky coastline is breathtaking. We did not walk the boardwalk, but entered the trail near the Ritz Carlton. This will take you around the golf course and right onto the rocks. Definitely worth a morning to see this beautiful place.
