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

Small and secluded, it was a perfect place to be married with just our kids in attendance. Yes, it's quite a hike down, and then back up. But for the most part it is paved, and there are benches placed strategically to rest. If I can hike back up barefoot in a full length wedding dress without stopping, you can... More

This is an almost private beach because there's a short hike down the cliff to get to it, and most people have trouble finding; however, the reward is that it is small and private. If you like to look at fish while you swim, this is an ideal place.

We took a half day kayak tour started from 830 to 100 pm. Our tour guide took us to this beach and we snorkelled by the shore for 45 mins. It is a very quiet beach and not too many people know about it. There is a steep trail by the St. Regis Hotel that you can access. We also... More
