After reading the reviews here, it seems that the experience in Hideaways may largely depend on the time of the year and whether you are on the east or the west side. We went in late Dec. using the private path from the PKK condos leading to the eastern side of the beach. The sealed path is not as bad... More

Beautiful little beach near the resort we stayed at in Princeville. The walk down is a little challenging and very steep, you will want good shoes. The beach is small so it can get a little crowded (by Kauai standards) in the afternoon so morning is best. But the beach can be washed out and dangerous if the big surf... More

As the name suggests, this beach is harder to access, not because it is out of the way, but in the heart of Princeville, you will be require to traverse a steep path.. keep your hands free. You will be rewarded by a sheltered quiet beach with decent snorkelling

This beach is really a pretty one. Sometimes debris is found on the shore, which makes it look dirty. Sometimes the shore is clean. A great view of the Bali Hai.

One if the most beautiful beaches. Clean clear water, trees right up to the water, fantastic shade so you can stay the whole day. No life guard but also very few people the three times we went. Saw a fun array of fish and sea turtles. It was the highlight of our trip!

Easy to get to from Pali Ke Kua, but private access, very coarse sand and slippery rocks for tide pools, if go around corner of beach area would be at Hideaways and better sand and snorkeling

This is our 3rd trip to the Princeville area & had never heard of this place until our friends came here recently! What a treasure! Just park at the St. Regis (or luck/out & take one of the 8 Beach parking spots right next to the tennis courts at the head of the trail) & you are on your way!... More
