Excellent spot for snorkeling. Parking is a bit of a challenge. To access the trail you utilize a rope for part of the way. This beach is amazing!

The path to the beach has changed to further up the Sea Lodge parking lot by the BBQs and much better to access. Overall path is good and not to difficult. Small children 5 and up can handle the trail. Beautiful cove type beach nice...More

If you can handle the minor hassle of valet parking at the St Regis and a 10-15 minute walk on a very steep hill, you will be rewarded with a gorgeous sandy beach with excellent easy shore snorkeling. The hill has some old rope rails...More

We only saw a few people snorkeling from above, but the water was so beautiful that we braved the steep hike down. Best decision ever! Hideaway Beach is truly a hidden gem. The snorkeling was awesome. We saw some fish we hadn't seen elsewhere. Loved...More

We love this beach so much for snorkeling. We have been there twice and both times not very crowded. Challenging climb down to visit but lots of coral, fish and even and octopus to see!

The views are spectacular and the water is warm. The Beach is a great place to relax and enjoy a chat, a drink, and let the world go by.

Must do when in Princeville. There are two parts of this beach, one just before the Pinceville Resort (cool way down) and the more secluded one that can only be accessed via the Pali Ke Kua condomniums (much nicer, less crowded, turtle snorkling 😊)

This place was tough to locate because google map is not accurate. You need to drive pass the Hideaway Pizza Restaurant and the Small parking lot is right next to a tennis court. If you see St. Regis, you went too far. We got there...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.
