The beach is beautiful with lots of turtles and surfers in the waves. As you follow the trail you come across an awesome vantage point for sunrise and the spot doubles as a great cliff jumping spot! Walking along the coastline you will get a magnificent view of the Kauai coastline. Great all around hike!

It was a really nice and easy hike of about 6 miles round trip and some rewarding coastal sites as well as a cave and tortoises. There is full sun exposure pretty much the whole hike so I recommend either early in the morning or really cover up. I also recommend taking fluids as you are crossing a mini desert out there. Otherwise, take in the great views and lack of muddy rocks (it was a relief not to have that obstacle in the hike)

My 20 week pregnant wife and I did this hike early last week. Conditions were dry with a little wind. For sure an easy skill level. This is a great trail to get you 'warmed up' for the others on the island. We found ourselves staring in awe at the natural beauty along the coastline.

Very nice walk with varying terrain and micro environments. Great views of the ocean. Can include a visit to to the Malaukawai Cave and botanical garden area.

Best beach on Kauai. Best, dryest, sunniest part of the island.

Great trail! Easily accessible, over looking the water most of the time.
