A great alternative to the popular Isabella boardwalk, especially for trail runners, is the lesser-known off-road trail between Villa Montana Beach Resort and Survival Beach in the Maleza area of the north coast. This flat path is mostly shaded by trees, but includes fantastic coastal views. Starting from the resort, head west on the road, then turn RIGHT towards the ocean to find the path to the left (west). The path runs along the coast into Maleza, where it meets another road leading west to Survival Beach. As an out and back, it’s about 4 miles.
