The beach was not crowded. The path leading to it was a little challenging because the ground was slippery and it started with stairs then a rail and then just a rope on a steep decline. It was well worth the climb. The view was...More

This was my favorite beach on the island. Tucked away with an awesome reef for snorkeling. We swam with a bunch of sea turtles just off shore. The hike down is a bit tough but it's worth it.

We had a home rented in Princeville so the beach was within walking distance. That made it really handy for all. There were ten of us and aged from five to sixty six. This beach fitted all our requirements. Shallow spots for the little tikes,...More

This is fun to go mostly because it's so beautiful, but also because it's hard to get to. The entrance is only a few hundred yards from the St. Regis Princeville, but the trail drops down a couple of very steep slopes. There are hand...More

This is a cute and small beach with some good snorkeling during summer months. The climb is a good workout too!

My wife and I rented some snorkel gear and hiked our way down to hideaways beach for a couple hours. The trail down is certainly hairy and should be avoided by anyone that isn't relatively nimble. The beach is pretty small and does not provide...More

Secret beach near St Regis. The path down is steep and somewhat dangerous. Cool beach at the bottom. Appears to be good for snorkeling and surfing (past the reef). Secluded beach without a lot of people.

Hideaways was an awesome experience - very cool secluded beach. The walk down is a little steep but very doable and there is a rope that you can hold on to for support. For parking, I'd recommend parking at the St... More

Waves can get bigger in winter but still safe to swim and snorkel. Water temp is still ok As far as clouds, all depends on weather. The north shore gets its fair share of rain but than a half hour later it's a rainbow and... More
