This Easy 3 Mile Coastal Boardwalk Trail In Hawaii Is A Little Slice Of Paradise

With more than 10 years of experience as a professional writer, Megan holds a degree in Mass Media from her home state of Minnesota. After college, she chose to trade in her winter boots for slippahs and moved to the beautiful island of Oahu, where she has been living for more than five years. She lives on the west side but is constantly taking mini-road trips across the island and visits the neighboring islands whenever she can getaway. She loves hiking, snorkeling, locally-grown coffee, and finding the best acai bowl on Oahu.
You will not only find some of America’s most iconic landscapes across the Hawaiian Islands but some of the best hiking trails in the world as well. While you’ll find plenty of difficult hikes across Hawaii, not everyone who lives in or visits the Aloha State is an experienced hiker. Luckily, you’ll find several trails in Hawaii that make it easy to enjoy the great outdoors, including this easy oceanfront boardwalk trail the whole family will love.
For more information on the Wailea boardwalk head on over to AllTrails.com. Have you ever enjoyed a leisurely walk along this oceanfront boardwalk? Share your experience and opinions with us in the comments below.
There’s another boardwalk trail not too far from Wailea in Maui’s Central Valley. You’ll find it at the Kealia Pond National Wildlife Refuge – and it’s definitely worth a visit! If you’re heading to some of the other fantastic trails in Hawaii, in general, or on Maui, specifically, we recommend wearing sturdier footwear than your beach slippahs and using AllTrails+ to download trail maps for use offline, as much of Maui’s backcountry – especially in Haleakala National Park – is outside of cell range for many carriers.

Are there other trails in Hawaii on the island of Maui?
Yes - there are many other trails in Hawaii on the island of Maui! Among the main Hawaiian islands, Maui is kind of the "just right" island: It has nicer weather (and less vog - volcanic smog) than Hawaii Island, it's not nearly as crowded as Oahu, and there's more going on than on Kauai. It's a happy medium that embraces all the good things that Hawaii has to offer, along with infrastructure, amenities, and, of course, adventure.
This means you'll find many hiking trails on the island. Some of the best are in Haleakala National Park, but there are many others elsewhere on the Valley Isle. These are some of our favorites:
