Explore this historic path that stretches along Kaua‘i’s beautiful coastline

Grandma, Nightowl, Culture

This beautifully scenic path traces Kaua‘i’s coastline for a lengthy 17 miles. Ke Ala Hele Makalae, Hawaiian for "The Path that Goes by the Coast," is an excellent way to see the Garden Isle via car, bike, running, or walking.

Following a former railroad line used to transport island sugarcane, the Ke Ala Hele Makalae route has access to area parks, beaches, and coastal communities. Discover Lydgate Park, home to two protected lagoons offering calm waters for ocean swimming and snorkeling. While there, enjoy picnic pavilions, tent campsites, and a playground.

Interpretive signs along the trail give information about local, cultural, historic and archeological sites, and much more. Exploring any segment, or the entire trail, is a relaxing and enjoyable way to get to know Kaua‘i.
