Begin the hike with a walk on the Shipwrecks beach heading towards the Maka-wehi Point - the sand dunes found at the southern part of the beach. Continue walking along the coastline and you will find the Pa'a Dunes ahead. The winter season will help you spot humpback whales and green sea turtles. While walking on the beach, you will see limestone formations on the right of a small bay. There is a footpath that goes round the bay - take the path and head towards the Punahoa Point. These are the oldest sand dunes on the coast formed some 350,000 years ago.
The trail next passes under a canopy of tall Kiawe trees that lead to a junction. Head straight and you directly reach the Mahaulepu Beach. Go northeast and start climbing the path to Kamala Point. The trail officially ends at the northeast end of Ka-wai-loa Bay. But several people carry on their journey to the Papa-mo-i Point.
