We love to walk, roughly how long would it take to walk the beach walk starting at Duke's by the Mahana to Lahaina?
I would say about 1.5 to 1.75 hours ... it's roughly 5 miles.
But the beach walk ends at the Hyatt (about mid way to Lahaina)... past that, there's a long stretch of beach, and then past that I think you would need to walk on the side of Honoapiilani Hwy for a short stretch ... per this street view: http://goo.gl/maps/qfteP
Someone posted an account of doing that walk... I'll have a quick look to see if I can find the link.
From Duke's, I'd say that it is more like 7 or 8 miles. I'd say "Google Map" it - but they use roads. Hmm... as Susan says, it would be good to hear if others have done it.
It's 6 miles per google's driving directions from Mahana to Banyan Tree Park.
I couldn't find the review from the man who walked it ... but I do remember that he talked about having to walk on that stretch of Honoapiilani Hwy that I linked the photo to above.
I would go as far as the Hyatt and come back (that way you'll be able to stay on the paved beach walk... or if you want to venture further, continue on along the beach path until it ends ... I don't think it's worth walking on the shoulder of 4-lane Honoapiilani Hwy.
Or, walk to Whaler's Village and take the bus to Lahaina (check the bus schedules as they don't run very frequently) ... then do the reverse on the way back.

Actually our plan was to walk to Whalers Village, that is where we are going on a sunset dinner cruise. Any recommendations on where to have a cocktail in that area prior to our dinner cruise? So how far is the beach walk than to Whalers Village from Mahana?
Had nice cocktails at Hula Grill and Leilani's which both face the ocean
Hula Grill - outdoor seating. I would have the cocktail after the sail.Edited: 20 January 2013, 15:44
