2. Sleeping Giant and Beach Hikes

From Kapaa, if you're in fairly good shape a trip up the Nounou trail to Sleeping Giant will give you an excellent view of the area. A trip down the Kapa'a Shoreline Trail, on the other hand, takes you down to hidden but popular Donkey Beach with a possible whale sighting along the way. It's a good sunbathing beach and the waves draw surfers. About a mile and a half away is Kealia beach, a bit better for swimming and good for whale sightings in winter. As with all beaches here, be mindful of the currents year-round, but especially in winter.
