Pali Ke Kua (Hideaways) Beach

TIME : 2016/2/18 10:32:36

A cove notched in the cliffs, Hideaways has a short strand of golden sand and turquoise shallows. It’s an ideal snorkel and swim spot (when it’s calm), with a teeming reef just off the beach. Be wise and don’t get caught out when the tide comes in.

Park at the tiny, always-crowded lot past the St Regis gatehouse, where a path between two fences followed by a steep railing- and rope-assisted scramble leads down to the beach.

A path to the left of the gatehouse takes you to Puʻu Poa Beach . Although public, it sits below and adjacent to the St Regis resort and serves as its on-campus beach.
