Great snorkeling, amazing views, perfect!

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... read 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

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.

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
