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.

This was a reasonably easy hike. We did see some wearing slippers, but not recommended. Start hike at bluff at east end of Shipwrecks Beach, otherwise you will miss a good portion of the beautiful sea cliffs—and stay back from the edge!

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.

Breathtaking trail overlooking the ocean

Go to end of trail. Lovely view throughout. Poorly marked.

Pretty easy, safe hike. Mostly flat with slight inclined and declined. Absolutely gorgeous scenery. Would bring water and be prepared for the sun.

Completed in a little under 4 hours

We did it in 4.5 hours and packed a lunch...Bring plenty of liquids...Highly doable for families.

loved this hike, beautiful scenery!

It's a hike not a bike path. Wear good shoes. Tennis shoes should be fine. Do not wear flip flops!!!! Pay attention there are sharp rocks around. Take water

Good hike, not well marked, well worth going. Great views!

Absolutely awesome; hiking the reefs, an island, ocean wildlife, swimming, snorkeling, and a whole lot of fun.

Absolutely beautiful! Easy and scenic, highly recommend.

Fantastic views! Very leisurely hike with plenty of area to just stop and take in the scenery!

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

Nice easy hike that runs parallel to the shore. Very much enjoyed it.

Sehr schöne Wanderung an der Küste. Das Ziel fand ich eher mittelmäßig. Grundsätzlich würde ich empfehlen die Wanderung früh morgens oder in den Nachmittagstunden zu machen. Da man hier sehr viel in der Sonne läuft. Insgesamt sind wir auf 13 km gekommen.

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

We had a wonderful time on this walk/hike. I'd say it was more easy than moderate- but maybe I'm just too used to hikes in the Northeast. Great views! We also saw some people on horseback, which was pretty cool.

Super nice coastal walk but yes lots of water if your gonna do this hike.

take a lot of water (and don't hike it midday if you can help it), but this is an amazing hike along the coastline. If you go past Maha'ulepu/Gilin's beach (and house), you get to some pretty amazing cliffs/rock formation and a labyrinth for those who like those kind of things. I went past that as well to the end of the trail, marked by a barbed wire fence and that little beach/bay there is great, completely private, I was there all alone for 45 minutes or so. Great hike. It's not that difficult except that the trail isn't marked much (or at all in some places) but if you continue to walk in the right direction, eventually you find or make a path.

It was a very easy but good hike. We hiked to the caves and a few private beaches. We saw 6 turtles along the way. Only part we didn't really like was the walk through the golf course. We brought hammocks and took a nap on a private beach.

Million Dollar views! Easy hike, be sure to do it in the early morning as it gets very hot!

Beautiful hike along the coast. Beach swimming at the trailhead. More of a 3 1/2 star rating.

Amazing and million dollar views
The trails aren't well marked but the app helped us stay on track. Being a hot day we were out of water before we got back. So take lots of water.

This is primarily a super area for swimming in a protected area at the area just across the street from the restaurant. If you go to the end of the trail, this would be the best place for boogie boarding and surfing. This whole area is a state park and is my parents favorite area to be at. Snorkeling is super here as well. Today we had a special treat in that we saw two turtles on the beach (in the protected cove area) and off about .25 miles where the snorkeling is good there was 4 monk seals.
