Steep short walk from our condo. Small secluded beach, especially at high tide. Limited parking near St. Regis Hotel and a longer walk, just as steep.

The beach is a great secluded spot with spectacular views. However when we were there, there was tons of small flies in the sand. We wound up leaving because of it. Another family left as well because they were being bitten. If this is not...More

We went to Hideaway's Beach after visiting Queen's Bath as we had heard it's one of the island's best beaches. We took advantage of the free valet parking at the St. Regis as the (small) parking lot for the beach was full. The trail down...More

This is what Hawaii is about. It’s a bit treacherous getting down to the beach so definitely not for the little ones but once you get down there it is amazing. The trek down and back up is adventurous but the shady beach, the views...More

If it is rainy consider skipping this unless you are fit. The trail is really really bad in the rain - the ropes are there for a reason but if you have bad knees or no upper body strength then go somewhere else. And check...More

The trip down is quite interesting, especially if its been raining. The beach itself is very nice, it just seems to be rather busy every day.

Why did we wait so long to see this hidden GEM. We were on the ST. Regis hotel side. There are two sides to the beach. There are only eight places to park then follow the trail down. A little hairy on a few parts...More

AK24Mio did a great job of describing how to get there. The path down the cliff which can be rather slippery if it has rained a whole lot. After finding the beach, do be careful about entering the nearby stream after a big... More

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.
