Walk Or Ride Alongside The Ocean On The 7.3-Mile Ke Ala Hele Makalae In Hawaii

With its vast coastline and plenty of incredible hiking trails, it’s ideal to have a pathway that runs alongside the ocean in Hawaii. Along Kauai’s Royal Coconut Coast, there’s a multi-use trail that does just that. Called the Ke Ala Hele Makalae, which translates to “The Path That Goes by Coast,” this pathway meanders along the coast, and visitors will experience breathtaking scenery the entire way.
