Fun to get to a beach through a hike. It had just rained, and the hike down to the beach is steep, so good shoes and a bit of patience is necessary, but once you get down to the beach, the sand is soft and...More
We went on a dry day, the path is steep but doable! It would be difficult after a rain. If you pick a dry day, you have to go here!! POWERFUL waves, just breathtaking. Not a swimming beach. This is to sit back and watch...More
Pretty little hike with tons of flowers to get down to this beach. The water is bright blue and you can see the lighthouse! Perfect beach to post up for the day with food and drinks. The water looked pretty intense when we were there...More
Had a terrible time getting to this beach. Pathway is muddy and extremely slippery. The mud here is more greasy than on mainland. Then when we finally did find it it was so full of people you couldn’t enjoy it.
As other reviewers have said,...More
Ok first of all, the name is highly misleading as it appears there is nothing “secret” about this beach. On the day we went, there were lots of people there. Not complaining because there is plenty of room. Getting to this beach is the real...More
A lot of people talking about the trail down to the beach here. Luckily for us it was dry, and as such the trail was fine. I can definitely imagine it is slippery as hell if it's been raining though...
The beach is beautiful and...More
Had read about it, heard about it. Morning we went (to avoid any crowd) was misty/wet. We started down the pathway, which started out great. Oh, a pair of surfers drove up before we left the parking lot and warned us (it might be muddy)....More
Getting down to Secret Beach was as much fun for me as the actual beach! I'm 55, and semi-fit, and didn't have a problem. The day we went was quiet muddy. But, the mud added to the fun of getting there! I felt like I...More
This beach has a little bit of a trek to get down to, but not bad at all! Once you get down to Secret it’s so beautiful and spacious! Sand is soft and the ocean is a beautiful turquoise color! Waves can be strong so...More
I guess it depends on the time of day. I went around 8am and there was no one on the beach besides me and my husband. I’m not a nudist, but I needed to change my bathing suit ...and I did! I guess they only enforce it is... More
I guess it depends on the time of day. I went around 8am and there was no one on the beach besides me and my husband. I’m not a nudist, but I needed to change my bathing suit ...and I did! I guess they only enforce it is there are law enforcement people there

I had great difficulty finding it at first, because there are two Kalihiwai Roads, and initially I went to the wrong one. If you're on the one with signs to Ahnini Beach and Kalihikai Park, then you're on the wrong road... More
I had great difficulty finding it at first, because there are two Kalihiwai Roads, and initially I went to the wrong one. If you're on the one with signs to Ahnini Beach and Kalihikai Park, then you're on the wrong road. Secret Beach is actually off of the Southern Kalihiwai Road, the road that leads to Kalihiwai Beach (although don't drive that far). Once you turn onto the correct Kalihiwai Road, make a right onto the first dirt road (not the first dirt driveway), and follow the road until it ends at a crude parking area adjacent to two homes. The trail to the beach begins behind the boulders that are lined-up in a row.
