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
