Pali Ke Kua Beach (Hideaways Beach) Review

This is actually two very small pocket beaches separated by a narrow rocky point. The beach area itself is narrow and can all but disappear in wintertime. However, in summer, the steep, rocky trail (don't trust the rusty handrails and rotting ropes) that provides access reduces the number of beachgoers, at times creating a deserted beach feel. Winter's high surf creates dangerous conditions. Don't attempt the trail after a heavy rain—it turns into a mudslide. Amenities: parking. Best For: surfing; sunset.

    Gorgeous hidden beach

    This is a beautiful tucked away gem, although it takes some real physical fitness and an adventurous attitude to get there! Be very careful on the rope path down, but once at the bottom, the beach is gorgeous and if you're lucky, will have very few people on it. A beautiful place to swim, read a book, and enjoy paradise.
