I loved this little gem of a beach! As others have mentioned, it's not a super fun hike to get to the beach - so bring sturdy shoes and be prepared to get muddy! That being said, the hike down is so worth the payoff...More

This is NOT an easy access beach - BUT it is 100% a must see and worth the hike up and down. Tunnels Beach was closed so we ended up visiting Hideaways and Hanalei Bay almost daily. Hideaways has LOTS of shade - it is...More

We were in Kauai at the end of July '18. Tunnels beach was closed and so we went to Hideaways. Oh what a delight. The reef is very rich and lots of fishes to see. Some even saw up to 5 turtles. Current was a...More

I think this beach is best for snorkeling. Better to be there earlier before most crowds. The water is clear and it’s a lot of corals and fish to enjoy. I dropped the car at st. Regis valet parking. It’s a free parking for everyone,...More

In July of 2018, the last 20 miles of the north shore were inaccessible due to road closures, making Ke'e Beach and Tunnels Beach out of reach. So we along with many, many others discovered Hideaway's. The trail down is an adventure in itself -...More

Great sandy beach, plenty of room and privacy. Nice place for a shore hike. Small fresh water stream flowing into the bay.

This beach is absolutely gorgeous! It is hard to get to though. If you dont have sturdy shoes like Keens or Tevas I suggest going barefoot. It is aVERY steep climb and if you are not used to using your legs for hiking then you...More

Drive to the Princeville St. Regis. 50 yards before the hotel to the right is the very small parking lot (8 cars). You can not miss it.

we went 2 days before storm, but still plenty of rain and High Tide warnings, so the water was not real friendly and nice, so we chose to look at rather than possibly get swept away in it.

Princeville was not damaged as it is on a high plateau overlooking the ocean and a planned community with grading that channels rain water run off. Hanalei had flooding but most of Hanalei town is back up and running and the... More
