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

It is a little tough to find but worth the effort. It was quiet, water was wonderful, and even the turtles liked it!

Considering this place has only 9 parking spots, a horrible walk down using rickety ropes and broken pipe, no bathroom and it very small, it's not worth doing what we did which was go for sunset. If I did it again I would only go for the snorkeling for a couple of hours early in the morning and then leave.... More

The paved path is definitely a leg killer and then entrance in and out of the water is a little slippery and not very graceful, but the snorkeling is awesome...tons of fish, a turtle and an eel! We spent a lot of time here.
