Pedal the Coconut CoastKaua‘i
The coastal view from the east side of the island has always been compelling, but due to lack of easy access and a developed beach park, the Coconut Coast has long played second fiddle to the more popularized south and north shore destinations. That perception is changing with the construction of a $30 million bike/walking path that follows the contours of the scenic coast.
The more than 4-mile Kapa‘a segment of the coastal path that has already been completed begins at Lihi Park on the south side of Kapa‘a and continues past Kealia Beachto Ahihi Point just past Donkey Beach. A 2.3-mile segment in Lydgate Park also is in use.
When finished, the pathway will cover 16 miles from Ahukini (near the Lihu‘e Airport) to Anahola.
A cluster of vendors have cropped up along Ke Ala Hele Makalae—the path’s official name—making it easy to rent a bike, grab lunch or shop at an outdoor market.
Coconut Coasters rents bikes by the hour, half day, full day or weekly. Bikes for kids are available as well as trailers for children.
