E-bike through Kapalua — Maui’s Premier Resort Area!

Kapalua, loosely translated as “arms embracing the sea,” is one of Maui’s premier resort areas located at the foot of the verdant Kahalawai or West Maui mountains. Kapalua’s lovely shoreline is lined with five bays and three white-sand beaches, one of which was named “The Best Beach in America” by the University of Maryland’s Laboratory of Coastal Research.

The Kapalua Resort has miles of trails to hike, including the 3.5-mile Coastal Trail. At the ocean’s edge throughout Kapalua Resort, the coastal trail runs north from award-winning Kapalua Bay Beach, across the sand dunes at picturesque Oneloa Bay, through The Ritz-Carlton, Kapalua’s scenic grounds to popular D.T. Fleming Beach Park. The 3.5-mile trail will reach historic Honolua Bay, where the voyaging canoe Hokule‘a began its maiden voyage to Tahiti, launching the Hawaiian cultural renaissance in spring 1976, and where surfers all over the world come over to enjoy its winter swell.

Please note 3.5-mile coastal trail is not a bike trail. You can park your bike and walk the coastal trail and take amazing pictures.

  • Dragon’s Teeth – Makalua-puna Point off Office Road, Kapalua

  • What is an e-bike rescue and what is covered?
    Bike rescue is a type of insurance you can add on when making your purchase. The $10 bike rescue fee covers: flat tires and electronics failures within a 7.5 mile radius of West Maui. Taking the bike north of Honolua Bay or south of Olowalu is considered OUTSIDE the West Maui boundaries and is not included.

Please keep in mind: The bike rescue insurance must be purchased BEFORE your ride. If you encounter an issue outside of a 7.5 mile radius, an additional fee will be charged based on the distance. If the bike runs out of battery charge outside of the West Maui boundaries it is not covered under bike rescue.

Beginner Riders please consider the following:

  1. Ask for an evaluation test ride before renting the e-bike. Being able to properly balance, get on, get off a bike and ride making controlled tight turns under your own power as well as pedal assist is critical.
  2. If you are not confident following your evaluation test ride either cancel before the 24 hours or switch to a tandem bike. You can also rent an e-bike for 2 hours to practice before the group ride to get comfortable.
  3. Rent a Tandem bike (2 people on one bike) utilising an experienced rider as the lead rider.
  4. Hire a guide to take you on a tandem.
