We rented some bicycles and rode the whole length of the beach path. The views are gorgeous. We had this done this before a couple of years but just had to do it again. If going by bicycle it is an easy ride. We stopped several times just to take in the views. This time we did not see any... More

With Seattle being a home base for us, we use the Green Lake "bike" path often. Well, to me, this is the Kauai version of the GL path. It runs for miles (5+?) along the beautiful coast with a nice collection of sandy beaches with black rock croppings interspered. It currently has the right amount of foot / bike traffice... More

We went on our final day because we had time between Hotel check-out and I our flights. We rented beach cruiser bikes for $5 each and set off on the path. I think we covered about 7 miles round trip and we got to watch the waves and people enjoying the shoreline. Plus, there was a whale breaching in the... More

This is a fun way to spend a couple of hours, or longer if you stop for a swim at some of the lovely beaches. The path was paved and fairly level, and the views were just divine. The pineapple dump was very interesting and there were lots of opportunities for photos all along the route. If the weather is... More

This is so much fun. Get a good bike, grab a towel, some water and you camera and enjoy some beautiful coastal views and some isolated beaches. What could be better? Well, your on a paved path made just for walkers, runners and bike riders. It is a very easy ride of about five miles that takes about two hours... More

This path meanders along the coast and is just beautiful (especially heading north out of Kapaa) Easy going, lots of places to run down to the beach- and Pineapple dump lookout is a great place to see turtles! This was really nice!

This is a wonderful path that meanders along the beach for several miles. It is fairly level so not difficult for anyone with a disability (I had three Back Surgeries this year and had no difficulty). The views from the path are spectacular. You can do it in sections (various places to park along the way) or end to end.... More

We always enjoy using this path while staying in Kapaa. It walks along the ocean with varying views of the beach and water. You can bike, run or walk the path and stop at various beaches along the way.

My wife and I walked this whole path one morning. The views were second to none and the path was paved and in great shape. If you have time, try to walk the whole path. You won't be disappointed!
