Kihei, Hawaii Map

not pet friendly, not kid friendly, not moderate. it was steep, slippery, overgrown. it was an incredible view and the real hikers enjoyed it but it is not for the average person and on a sunny day would be bruttle.

Not at all what we expected to see on an island. Just like others have stated the lava rock makes you feel like your on another planet. Hike was definitely moderate, just wear good shoes and watch your footing. Waves were huge today and the sunset was awesome. So many different things to see along this stretch.

so beautiful and just a good walk to get away for a few.

This hike is different. It's not you typical walk on the beach. It feels like you are on a different planet. Make sure you pack heavy-duty hiking boots or sandals. Brings a lot of water and enjoy history of how the earth was born.

We did the branch of the trail to the lighthouse and back. At a moderate pace with stops it took us just under two hours. Parts of the trail are large loose rocks so proper shoes are a must. This shoreline hike has a mix of trees and open lava rock fields. You will want to head out early when it is cooler. Luckily we had a light breeze to help keep us cool. We enjoyed butterflies along the beaches and caught a glimpse a few wild goats.

Great hike, If you like broken ankles, heat, wind,and nothing to look at.

Short hike in return for the amazing view. Can verify that the side of the hill close to little beach is steep and has loose rock. Would only recommend going up that side for experienced hikers. It is not maintained so the trail gets a little spotty in some spots. Definitely worth checking out though.

Beautiful at sunset and very easy! Nice view of all the fancy resorts too.

Great hike! Would be a mostly easy stroll if it weren't for the lack of shade. It's pretty rocky; definitely wear sturdy shoes. The beach at the end is beautiful. You can walk past the beach, but the path was unclear, so I turned back. Wonderful scenery.
