One of our favorite South Maui hikes is along the Hoapili Trail better known as the King’s Highway. Just drive through Wailea-Makena to the end of the road, to the parking lot park at Keoneoio Beach, hike starts here at La Perouse Bay.
The King’s Trail a beautifully built trail through the top layer of A’a lava.
From Keoneoio Beach hike 2.5 miles along Cape Hanamanio to Keawanaku Beach.
The Keawanaku Beach is the end of the Hoapili Trail (King’s Highway) and the start of the remote Kanaio Coast.
