64. PEDAL THE CO­CONUT COAST

101 Things to Do (Kauaʻi) - - BEYOND THE CITY -

been com­pelling, but due to lack of easy ac­cess and a de­vel­oped beach park, CO­CONUT COAST has long played sec­ond fiddle to the more pop­u­lar­ized South Shore and North Shore des­ti­na­tions. That per­cep­tion is chang­ing with the con­struc­tion of a $30 mil­lion BIKE AND WALKING PATH that fol­lows the con­tours of the scenic coast. The over 4-MILE KAPA‘A SEG­MENT of the coastal path, which has al­ready been com­pleted, be­gins at LIHI PARK on the south side of Kapa‘a and con­tin­ues past KEALIA BEACH to 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 has cropped up along “KE ALA HELE MAKALAE” (Hawai­ian for “The Path that goes by the Coast”), mak­ing it easy to rent a bike, grab lunch or shop at an out­door mar­ket. Var­i­ous ven­dors will rent bikes by the hour, half day, full day or weekly. There also are bikes for kids and trail­ers for younger chil­dren.
