Things to do in Kauai Hawaii – ride the bicycle near the ocean!
Aloha! Today we went on a biking
adventure with all the family, on a trail called “The Path That Goes by the Coast”
or Ke Ala Hele Makalae path. It is located on the east side of Kauai and it
is about eight miles long. The path can be walked on, jogged on or biked on. You will
always have the ocean with the breeze on one side. There are many access points to
this trail at Lydgate Park, Lihi Park or Kealia Beach. You can
start right from the beginning with Lydgate Park all the way to Kuna Bay
through Lihi park and Kealia Beach or you might as well begin at any access
point of the path. Along the path there are restrooms at
Lydgate Park and Kealia beach, picnic tables, safe swimming areas, scenic lookouts.
You might spot whales breaching in the winter and dolphin pods in the summer.
The estimated time to complete a round trip by bike is one hour. We found a good rental shop downtown
Kapaa called Hele On Kauai Bike Rentals. There you can get a good bike
for five dollars an hour.
