Perfect Snorkeling and Sea Life

Hard to get to, but for the snorkeling enthusiast is a must do. Many sea turtles and great snorkeling.

This is just purely awsome this is the most incredible beach like a very romantic secluded beach with such clean sand and such a gradual beach there is a lot of water to play in.

There's a steep, but well paved trail that will lead you to Hideway's. Not the type of beach to spend the day at - it's pretty shady - but when the surf is right, you will access to a great spot for snorkling - I've found many turtles here when the visibility is nice.

Parking lot was full; like others, we used the valet at the St. Regis. The hike down to the beach is gorgeous. The water was murky from recent swells so the snorkeling wasn't too great. When we hiked back up to the St. Regis, we took the public access path down to the beach below the hotel, where the snorkeling... More

We stayed at the Pali Ke Kua condo resort, so we have available the private paved path to the "other" side of Hide-aways. As many noted, even this paved path is really only for fit folks. Going down is steep, not too bad, but going up is another story. Again, if you're fit, shouldn't be any issue. Once you get... More

When my husband and I were trying to decide between Princeville and Poipu on Kauai, we were envisioning lush, green spires and crystal blue water with good snorkeling. That's what we got at Pali Ke Kua Beach. Not only were we blown away by our Pali Ke Kua condo, we were equally stunned by the beauty of this nearby gem... More

We really enjoyed our time at this condo. It was clean, quiet, upgraded and a lovely view of the water. #244. We contracted for it with Kauai Vacation Rentals in Lihue and highly recommend their services. They quickly confirmed the rental, managed the process expertly, left the condo access materials at the car rental agency for us and were responsive... More

We were staying at The St. Regis with its secluded protected beach. Several days into our visit strong winds and a strong low were predicted to bring 40-50 foot waves into the area. We were told by locals that this was the best place to see waves crashing into the lava rocks with the classic plumes of spray. They were... More
