Kauai Path Description
The plan for this multiuse non-motorized path, where you'll find bikers, joggers, stroller-pushing parents, and rollerbladders zooming past on any given day, is for it to eventually span 16 miles from Lihue to Anahola. Right now the well-maintained paved pathway goes four miles from Kapaa Beach Park, with another 2.5 mile stretch finished in Wailua. It's a wonderful way to enjoy a gorgeous and scenic coastline. There are three bike rental places in Kapaa or you can simply go for a stroll with the kids while listening to the waves and enjoying ocean views.
Toddlers & Pre-K: Coconut Coasters in Kapaa rents bike trailers that can hold up to two kids weighing a total of 88 pounds (trailers cost $7 an hour, $15 for a half day, $18 for a full day. Adult bikes cost $8.50 an hour, $18 for a half day, $20 for a full day).
School-Age Kids: Coconut Coasters also rents tag-a-longs to attach to adult bicycles so kids who want to pedal but need a little help can enjoy the ride.
- Bring a lunch. There are covered picnic tables about every 100 yars along the path.
