This is a beautiful little beach. We found coral and did a little snorkeling. We also saw a chicken and 10 baby chicks. No life guard, but a flotation device is installed. The view of the cliff is amazing from the water.

Fortunately the track to this beach was literally right across the road from our Villa. A bit of a goat track and a little treacherous at times but worth it. First time there it was calm and great for snorkelling with an abundance of tropical fish and coral on the reef. The shade trees are an added bonus.

The public access has a tiny parking lot that gets full quickly so get there early or valet park at the St. Regis and walk a few hundred yards over. This path is steep but visitors have put up ropes and there are steel handrails. I wouldn't... More

First of all, the path leading to the beach is steep (and muddy during the rainy season) but I'd feel comfortable bringing my small children on it. Just go slow, use the ropes, and it's really not that big of a deal. It only takes a few minutes to get down. The parking lot only holds a few cars, as... More

Living across the street from the this beach for the past month, we decided it was time to check it out. Behind the Pali Ke Kua condos on Ka Haku Road, its quite a trek down but more so on the way back up. We were pleased to see that most of the hike down was on a paved path... More
